Welcome to the Big Apple Circus Legendarium, where you will experience the nostalgic thrills of bygone big tops and get a first-hand view of beauties, daredevils, and clowns from another era. At our all-new 35th anniversary season production, no seat is more than 50 feet from the globe's most spectacular circus performers. The Big Apple Circus presents Legendarium in its annual engagement at Ninigret Park in Charlestown, from Saturday, June 22 through Sunday, July 7.
Travel back to when circus traditions were born and witness incredible acts that would have had the villagers chattering for days. The courageous mid-air flips and catches of a man on the trapeze, a captivating contortionist whose flexibility is as impressive as her steadfast poise, an agile, adept acrobat and her strapping suitors and a swaying wire act of sure-footed strength and stability. The dizzying delights of a daring inventor in his tumbling, twirling hoop. The stunning, soaring beauty of a pair on aerial straps and a woman held aloft by hanging silks. A jaw-dropping juggling tango team performing to passionate rhythms. Bicyclists whom spinning wheels turn smooth and speedy stunts. Majestic horses with graceful gaits and playful pups with teasing tricks.
