Kazakhstan--A circus has been built in Shymkent as a gift to its residents for the anniversary of Independence and the New Year holiday. It is the fourth circus in the country. The legendary Yuri Nikulin Moscow Circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard performed the first show in the new building. One thousand two hundred seats were sold out in just a few hours. Air acrobats and trained animals took both adult and children’s breath away.
Artur Voyan, Shymkent Resident«The monkeys were riding horses and the bikes were great!»
Valentina Voyan, Shymkent Resident«Everything is great. The circus is beautiful. It’s a good present for Shymkent indeed.»
The circus was built in just a year and more than one billion tenge was allocated from the regional budget. The Moscow Circus professionals highly praised the quality of the new building.
Shymkent acrobats performed in this ring for the first time as well. The youngest performer of dangerous stunts is only five years old. There will be no problems with personnel in the new circus, experts say.
Kuliya Aidarbekova, Head, South Kazakhstan Region Department of Culture«There is a circus troupe at the Philharmonic Hall. It is well-known in the area. A circus without clowns and jugglers is not a circus so we don’t have any problems with this genre.»
