So I did not understand the story being told by the show but the experience was great. The high wire and trapeze acts were phenomenal along with the clowns and acrobats. I could have passed on the parrot act but genuinely dislike birds. The monkey...More

Given that we do not have circuses in Canada anymore this was a step back to my youth. There were animals involved but I was not overly offended but beware if you are sensitive to this

We wanted to see a Russian Circus and decided on this one, due to location (close to the center) and because it’s the most traditional. It was quite complicated to buy tickets as our Canadian Card was not accepted online. We bought tickets in the...More

Guess you should find it online as we had our tour operator who got the same arranged for us. I saw few buying tickets at the circus count itself as well but it was weekday so not sure whether you will be lucky enough or not More

I check the circus website, they did not specify the dress code but I think casual should be fine. Unlike when you visit cathedrals they expect you to be all covered
