We (a couple) went to this circus two times and are not planning to return because of the horrible incident during our last visit that we will discribe at the end of the review.
The building itself as well as stage is very average for the circus nowadays. It feels that it was made in Soviet time and was not renovated since then. As a result, the seats are quite uncomfortable with a very limited space in front of you.
The programs are usually very average with annoying clowns, who make fun of the audiences with vulgar jokes. Even if artists come from the different contries, they still create very average performances.
The only person, who has great performances in this circus, is Laszlo Simet with his "Wheel of Death." This worldwide known circus star would not make you sleep and will excite you with his modern performances made with the help of the great music/sound design, costumes and interesting balancing tricks. The rest of the artists are usually average or below average: jugglers loose their balls, acrobats drop and clowns make unfunny jokes.
The ticket prices are usually ~6-12 euros if it is a regular performance and ~15-25 euros during international festival.
In general, we would recommend you to visit this circus as an alternative to cinema if not an incident that happened during festival in January. During the performance of the Chinese acrobats, one member dropped. We don't know what he broke, but show was stopped for 10-15 minutes in order to take him away from the stage. Kids and adults were scared and had a bad mood afterwards. It was hard to watch the remaining performances after the tragic Chinese group. Even now, we don't want to return to this circus because of being scared to see someone's fatal fall.
