I took my daughter to see the Big Apple Circus when she was 3 years-old. We trekked into NYC mid-week and entered the a large tent at Lincoln Center. I remember it being just like an-fashioned circus with clowns, jugglers, flying trapeze performers, horse back riders, acrobatics, puppies and more. It was her first circus experience and it certainly left a mark on her memory. She has never forgotten it….
…which is why I’m excited about its upcoming arrival in NYC. It’s making its triumphant return to its hometown from October 17th to January 11th for its annual engagement Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park with its all-new show, METAMORPHOSIS.
The Big Apple Circus is the real thing – only without the mistreatment and abuse of animals other circuses have: The thrilling flyers of the trapeze, swooping and swirling through circus skies! The razzle-dazzle of the rolla-bolla, an act that teeters right on the edge of equilibrium! The dynamo of the diabolo, the whirling double–tops of the Big Top! An aerial space-age acrobatic adventure — an ascent to amazement! The risky rhythms of the Risley team, twisting and turning, topsy-turvy! The cadenzas of camels and horses, and the exuberance of playful pooches, out to dazzle with delight! The cunning conjurors of the quick-change act, defying belief and inspiring awe! And Francesco the Clown, captivating the crowd with his musical merriment and gentle humor. Under the direction of maestro Rob Slowik, the renowned Big Apple Circus Band provides as always the live and glorious tunes of the sawdust spectacular.
