Cirque Italia presents “Aquatic Spectacular.” The name reflects a unique attribute under the tent, as the show features a custom designed water stage that travels from city to city. The stage holds 35,000 gallons of water that performers dazzle over while thrilling the audience with every move. With this “unique feature” under the tent, guests will be surprised, for it’s a show of its own!

that brings a performance of European style. It is described as a

A PERFORMANCE OF EUROPEAN STYLE
Cirque Italia brings the appreciation of production and circus arts together to create a night to be remembered.
At Cirque Italia, the high-energy acts swing from ropes, flip over
trapezes, and zip by on BMX bikes and roller skates—pushing the
boundaries of human ability. Founder Manuel Rebecchi—the nephew of Moira
Orfei, the world-renowned queen of the Italian circus—combined his
family’s pedigree with his own groundbreaking ideas to form a company
that leaves crowds breathless and competitors hurrying to catch up.
Inspired by the element of water, the acts express versatility and
fluidity through human movement while curtains of rain and fountain jets
crisscross in time to each move. Laser lights and bubbles also add to
the interdimensional effect. In a nod to the inner child, mermaids rise
from the depths, and even dinosaurs make an appearance.
