The world-famous Great Moscow Circus is returning to South Africa this year with an all-new, sensational, two-hour World Premiere programme – featuring more than 65 circus superstars.

Russia’s most-famous calling card, the Great Moscow Circus is coming at a cost of R80 million, with breathtaking, affordable, family entertainment, capturing all the thrills and fun of the circus of yesteryear with all the skill and daring of today’s circus heroes.

The Great Moscow Circus will open its South African season at Johannesburg’s Montecasino on 22 December, before setting off to tour South Africa visiting Nelspruit, Bloemfontein, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

It will perform in its spectacular Big Top Tent, air-conditioned with individual chair seating, creating a traditional European atmosphere where the audience will never be more than 11 metres from the action!

Tickets are currently on sale at Computicket for the Johannesburg run in December. For more information visit
