Get ready for an experience that will take you far, far away to the wonders of Italy and the magic of an immersion into its culture. And into water! Yes, WATER! Our circus features a 35,000 gallons water stage! Isn’t that crazy? We’re like no other circus in the United States, you can be sure- and we take pride in our uniqueness.

During the show, you won’t believe your eyes when the lid lifts up to 35 feet in the air while a CURTAIN OF RAIN AND FOUNTAINS GLISTEN WITH EACH PERFORMANCE MOVE!
