Circus art is very popular in the world. Today, fans of spectacular performances are both children and adults. After all, a modern circus is not just clowns and animal rooms, but also unique themed shows, chic costumes and carefully thought-out decorations.
The Largest Circus In Size
The largest circus building in the world is the Great State Circus in Moscow. This building, built in 1971, is unique. After the opening, the admired journalists proclaimed the circus “the best attraction in the world”.
It’s really something to admire at the Moscow Circus. Almost 3,500 people can enjoy the show at the same time. The height of the amphitheater is about 36 m. The State Circus building is equipped with six arenas. Ice, light, equestrian, interactive and water areas are able to quickly replace each other. A good “bonus” is a separate arena for rehearsals.
On the arena of the Moscow State Circus are national and foreign artists. The programs consist mainly of classic rooms: with animals, acrobats, clowns, etc. During the New Year holidays, the circus building turns into a fabulous one: festive events for children are organized here.
The Biggest Circuses In The World: Other Categories
The biggest circus can be not only in the building, but also in the number of artists. In this category, the Canadian Cirque du Soleil, created in the Canadian province of Quebec, wins decisively. He became famous in 1984. Then the leader of the street circus troupe suggested that the country’s government organize trips to the Discover Canada cultural program. Because the event was to take place in the summer months, the artists were named Circus of the Sun.
To date, the circus “Du Soleil” – the most ambitious event in the industry. In total, it has about 5,000 people. A thousand of them are artists, the rest being stage directors, choreographers, costume designers, technicians, etc. Nearly 100 well-trained circus performers take part in each show.
The largest in the world in terms of the number of simultaneous work arenas is the American Ringling Brothers Circus. Different numbers are displayed simultaneously on the four platforms and three arenas. However, this is not the whole “trick” of the circus. Comes to the show should be in advance: the artists compose, and the animals repeat tricks just before the eyes to gather spectators.—-
