Big Apple Circus

In the 41st season show, real-life wonder women take the reins, led by new ringmaster Stephanie Monseu.  This year’s show is filled with a roster of superhero talents ready to incite jaw-dropping awe and inspire sheer joy in audiences of all ages. Ringmaster Monseu will be joined in the ring by a multitude of fierce, female-led acts and more, including:

  • The “strongest mom in the world” Virginia Tuells & her husband Ihosvanys Perez in DUO FUSION, a breathtaking acrobatic act that combines dance, strength, flexibility, and passion, in which Virginia handles a majority of the lifts
  • The wildly fun SPICY CIRCUS, created by Andréanne Quintal, whose team of performers will (literally) bounce off the walls in her feisty trampoline act
  • THE FLYING TUNIZIANIS, a double-wide trapeze act showcasing seven fliers & two catchers in addition to the quadruple somersault by Ammed Tuniziani – a feat only successfully landed by ten people in the world – alongside his wife Estefani, brothers Gamal & Dandino and more
  • DESIRE OF FLIGHT, a daring and balletic dual aerial straps act

Named a Critic’s Pick by the New York Times, the paper hails this year’s show as “high flying, wholesome family entertainment – good-hearted and pleasure-minded – with a robustly international cast.”

The BIG APPLE CIRCUS 41st season is directed by Mark Lonergan, choreographed by Grady McLeod Bowman, with music direction by Rob Slowik.
