We purchased our Niculin Circus tickets on line through OperaAndBallet.com. They went far and away above and I would not hesitate to recommend them. They deliver the tickets to your hotel room and they even found us after our tour agency changed our hotel in Moscow unbeknown to us.
The circus was the perfect way to spend our last evening in Moscow. It was a taxi ride of 500 rubles from the Marriot Moscow Paveletskaya Hotel or about $15.00. The tickets were not offered by our travel agency so we went ahead a ordered them in advance through OperaAndBallet.com. Only two others in our tour group went to the circus and we felt we were the smartest people ever!! It was a bit spendy, but worth every penny.
They are deadly about not taking any pictures and there are dedicated women ushers who must have been previoius Soviet Union hotel floor monitors for they were constantly on the aggressive lookout for any camera pointing or screen lighting. They were very intimidating and I would suggest simply buying the program.
The taxi cartel tried to charge triple the rate on the return trip to our hotel and we actually left two cabs before finding an honest driver. We once again paid him 500 ruples plus a nice tip.
We were fortunate to have seen this circus and the memories will always be with us.
