Moscow Circus coming to Miami


The Moscow Circus will present “A Winter’s Tale” at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, in Millett Hall. The event is part of the Miami University Performing Arts Series and sponsored by Miami’s Havighurst Center for Russian and Post-Soviet Studies, Kona Bistro and Coffee Bar, The Knolls of Oxford and the Ohio Arts Council.

Circus performers will enact a centuries old folktale showcasing their talents as aerialists, jugglers, gymnasts and clowns. The tale focuses on the Snow Queen, who discovers a tropical Russia and through her magic, transforms it into a winter wonderland.

The North American tour by the Moscow Circus is made possible by a special arrangement with the Russian Ministry of Culture and the Mayor’s Office of Moscow. “A Russian Winter’s Tale” is a new production specifically designed for the stage.

With a rich tradition and enviable reputation, the Moscow Circus is a standard by which other circuses are judged. The Oxford performance is a family event for children and adults alike.

Tickets are $7 for students and youth, $14 for senior citizens and $15 for other adults. Call the Miami box office for more information, (513) 529-3200.
