The Circus is coming to town!
Redwood City is proud to welcome, Zoppé, An Italian Family Circus from October 15th through October 24th for spectacular two-hour performances that will enthrall the entire family!
The Circus tent will be set up next to the Downtown Library at 1044 Middlefield Road in Redwood City and will host matinee and evening performances.
In addition, on October 14th, the Zoppé Circus is offering a rare opportunity, Dinner and a Circus! Get up-close and personal with the family and their new son, as they prepare for their two-week run in Redwood City under their new, enlarged tent. The evening includes a 3-course Italian meal (salad, pasta, desert, non-alcoholic beverages) around the Circus Ring, served by the performers, with performances in between!from mercurynews.com

The Zoppé Family Circus welcomes guests into the intimate 500 seat tent for a one-ring circus that honors the best history of the Old-World Italian tradition. Starring Nino the clown, the circus is propelled by a central story (as opposed to individual acts) that feature acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning and plenty of audience participation. Giovanni Zoppé, the sixth-generation circus performer who plays Nino, says the show aims higher than what passes for circuses these days. "We try to touch every emotion during the show," he says. "They'll laugh, they'll cry, and they'll feel for the characters. It's more of an event than a show."
Giovanni revived the Zoppé Family Circus in America four years ago, and has since been building its reputation with audiences and critics as an enchanting exhibition of traditional European circus. The Zoppé Circus evokes something from a picture book: the clown, the trapeze, the dancing dogs, the ring and the tent, created to be reminiscent of the one-ring European family circuses of the last century and will thrill and amaze children and adults alike with its breathtaking stunts and astonishing acrobatics. The Zoppé Family Circus is a one-time event not to be missed, so get your tickets early!
