“Nothing but the cruelty to animals”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Very short review: Do not go there if you want to see cruelty to animals. I know some performances are also fun for animals, but I think that it is not normal to whip the animal twenty times during one performance. And I have no words how to describe bear flying in some cage.

“Artistic Performance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The new renovated circus is soothing for eye and a good entertainment for tourists specially. It gives feel of the evolution over time in this arena. The Elephant performances are outstanding considering the small size of stage. Highly recommended from my side.

“Great Display”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The Moscow Circus (New) presented a fantastic performance, as would be expected by its reputation. Of course, there were the usual animal acts incorporating the typical monkeys, then goats trained to a level we normally see with dogs, hippos (yes), various other ones, and a very impressive performance where 7 identical white horse were dancing under the guidance of a single individual mounted on one of them. Each horse was completing the show its own individual routine. A real beauty. The second half was with acrobats with quite impressive routines. A great show at a very low price.

“Ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The New (aka The Big) Circus is a rival to the Old Circus in Tsvetnoy Bulevard. It's a classical circus with shows, that go for years, so it's enough to visit it just once. Animals, clowns and acrobats - all the familiar parts of a program, though acrobats are the best - they make really impressive performances today. That is what circus has always been like.
