The Moscow State Circus returns to the UK with its latest production, Zhelaniy.
The show is based on the Russian folk story of Cvetik-Semicvetik, or ‘the flower with seven colours’, by Benjamin Losin where each of the flower petals represent a wish.
Wizard Wako and his crazy sidekick Natalia Mezentceva invite the audience to a wondrous and mysterious enchanted garden, a place where dreams come true and a place to see magnificent feats of human achievement.
Loveable buffoons guide the audience through this tale, granting wishes to the beautiful Kushka Veslovskiy who plays Zhenya, surrounded by a multitude of flying, back flipping, juggling, wire walking and roller-skating performers.
This years show features the award-winning Ruban, a 13-strong springboard troupe, Stynka on the horizontal bouncing Russian bar and Veslovskiy and her roller-skating revolutions.
Also in the line-up is Eliza Khachutryan, a ballerina on the high wire in the roof of the big top, Trio Atlas on the floating globes, low wirewalker Olga Rozhkovskaya and Tatiana Ozhiganova, a daredevil diva.
Don’t miss this amazing show, created especially for its first ever European tour, all housed in a state of the art, air-conditioned big top.
The Moscow State Circus is at Southsea Common from August 20-26.
