Under the Big Top with Cirque Italia

Cirque Italia

I recently had the up most pleasure of getting to see Cirque Italia in Gainesville FL. This magical night was a host of wonder and breathtaking stunts. From acts of strength, to aerial elegance to the roar of prehistoric dinosaurs. All this happens in one night under the big top with Cirque Italia.

Cirque Italia

Cirque Italia is an Italian entertainment company that brings a performance of European style. It is described as a “vivid, dramatic, and moving experience under a customized traveling tent.” Cirque Italia brings the appreciation of production and circus arts together to create a night to be remembered.

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! Cirque Italia brings talented artists from across the world under the big top with performances that will really have you wanting more. They bring unique aerial acts, hand balancing, contortionists, and many more surprise performances that are breathtaking. They have created a show that is magical, modern, breathtaking, and most importantly –unforgettable!

My Thoughts

I have to say I found this show to be captivating and fun. When I arrived I was immediately giddy with excitement seeing the big top tent. It took me back to be a little girl and going to the circus for the first time. On entering i was impressed by everyone’s helpfulness and kindness. The lights and the music of this show were so intoxicating. It made you want to be part of the show.

As the show began I was completely taken in my the talent of the performers. From juggling acts to stunning aerial acts. Not to mention I was completely in tear laughing of Alex the clown’s antics. even my 16-year-old son came away taking about how wonderful it was. I would totally go again.
