The Moscow State Circus returns to Nottingham this week with its latest and greatest production to date.
Spending a week at the Forest Recreation Ground, the big top will stage performances from tonight (February 16) until wednesday February 24.
This year’s show is based on the Russian folklore story of Cvetik-Semicvetik, or “the flower with seven colours,” by Valentin Petrovich Katayev where each of the petals represent a wish. It is the perfect back drop for what is undoubtedly the greatest and most famous circus on earth.
Wizard Wacko and his crazy side kick Natalia Mezentceva invite the audience to a mysterious enchanted garden, a place where dreams come true and a place to see magnificent feats of human achievement, the likes of which have never been witnessed in Great Britain before.
The loveable buffoons guide the audience through this tantalising tale, granting wishes to the beautiful Kushka Veslovskaya who plays Zhenya, surrounded by a multitude of flying, back flipping, juggling, wire walking and roller-skating performers.
This years show features the award winning Troupe Leontiv on the flying parallel bars, Stynka on the horizontal bouncing Russian bar, Veslovskiy performing roller-skating revolutions, Trio Atlas on the floating globes, Olga Rozhkovskaya wire-walking and Moscow flying jugglers and dynamic Diablos.
Don’t miss this amazing show.
