Moscow State Circus Review


The show began with a clown, I had been warned about clowns beforehand, by people talking of their nightmares, but this wasn't a scary clown at all. He was dressed in red with a white face and was duly silly and funny.

Jill Saward from Hednesford in Cannock won a family ticket to see Moscow State Circus from our competition. Here she tells us what she thought of the performace.
I went with my husband and two teenage boys. I've never before been to a real circus, so entered with a sense of unknowing and excitement. The circus backdrop was that of Gorky Park, and the stage area was smaller than I had expected, but as I waited with anticipation growing, the start couldn't come quickly enough.
Next came an array of acrobatic skills and balance routines which my husband and I liked, I thought it was excellent. This was followed by juggling and a highlight for me was when they juggled in the dark, with illuminated skittles lighting up the big top.
 This was followed by a loud whip cracking sequence, where all manner of props flew off a couple as they whipped them away.
 The main highlight of the evening was “The Flying Doves”, the trapeze artists who soared through the air with white wings. They brought elegance and danger, and amazing talent.
 Their performance made the ring look much bigger, and whilst the safety net came in use, the graceful way they flew and their determination to continue showed the commitment to be outstanding.

The juggling footballer, my sons particularly liked, added a different dimension as he juggled and balanced on a very large ball. As did the skaters who performed at speed on a very small stage.
 The strength, skill and determination showed by the performers was immense.
 The clowns made several appearances, one discussing whether they were drinking “Vodka or Coca Cola”. Either way the water they threw on me was quite refreshing.
 The circus finished with another acrobatics display and a short finale. It was a wonderful evening enjoyed by people of all ages.
