Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step right up and walk back in time to this turn-of-the-century circus spectacular featuring a dazzling array of acrobatic performances and amazing feats of strength! From the producers of the world’s biggest magic show The Illusionists as well as the award-winning puppeteers from War Horse, comes this spectacular world-premiere event at Dallas Summer Musicals. Realistic-looking life-sized elephants come to town for the North Texas premier of this decadent new show featuring a huge cast performing dangerous and mesmerizing circus acts.


Come one, come all, see ‘em each, see ‘em all as Ringmaster Willy Whipsnade (David Williamson) presents:


The Flying Fins

Artur Ivankovich, Petter Vastermark and AJ Saltalamacchia

Repeated sturdy jumps onto opposite ends of the teeterboard send agile partnering acrobats high, high into the air for some jaw-dropping flips and stunts.


The Sensational Sozonov

Mikhail Sozonov

The son of two Russian circus performers, this international award-winner deftly balances himself upside-down on a way-tall stack of moving parts for his highly-suspenseful Rola Bola act.


The Cycling Cyclone

Florian Blummel

You know those awesome bicycle stunts that the cool guys on your hometown block used to do? They’ve likely got nothing on the “Wizard of the Wheel” and his fascinating “ballet with a bicycle.”


The Elastic Dislocationist

Senayet Asefa Amare

Exotic and athletic describe the mind-bending body bending of this extreme contortionist who began her career with a highly-successful tour alongside the “Queens of Africa.”


Duo Flash

Yevgeniy Dashkivskyy and Yefrem Bitkine

These humorous ‘ladies men’ provide slapstick style during a series of synchronized acrobatic maneuvers, pantomime comedic antics, and a few strategically-inserted modern-day dance moves.



Lucky Moon

Elena Gatilova

Called the “most acclaimed aerialist of a generation,” this former world champion of rhythmic gymnastics delivers a stunningly-beautiful and highly-emotional display of showmanship.


Les Incredibles

Anny Laplante and Andrei Kalesnikau

He is strong, she is petite, and they’re in love. He stands on a stilted contraption and flips her through the air like nobody’s business ? even as she’s blindfolded.


The Great Gaston

Francois Borie

Over his head, through his legs, over his back, seven at a time, running around the stage ? this award-winning circus artist is one of the fastest jugglers performing today.


Los Lopez

The Lopez Family

Doing death-defying tricks on the high wire without a net, this high-energy family walks, runs, dances, plays Leap Frog, and does handstands on bicycle handlebars way above the circus floor.


So head on over to the Music Hall at Fair Park for what just may be the greatest show in Dallas right now! A miniscule admission fee starting at just $16.00 will get you into the show to see these and more "wild, weird, and wonderful" acts onstage now until Sunday, June 4, 2017!
