####Big Apple Circus: _Legendarium_ The international performers of Big Apple Circus stretch one ring to new limits with this year's original show, _Legendarium_, presided over by veteran ringmaster John Kennedy Kane. Profiled in the [_New York Times_](http://gr.pn/Q50xMh) for their clowning mission to such conflict-torn areas as Afghanistan and the Balkans, the husband-and-wife team of Acrobuffos elicit chortles with their athletic buffoonery. Daniel Cyr showcases his invention, the Cyr Wheel, a single large metal hoop that allows him to roll about the ring in complex elliptical figures. Led by animal trainer Jenny Vidbel, Big Apple Circus' ponies, Arabian horses, and dogs perform sprightly routines, learned under humane training regimens based on positive reinforcement. With every seat within 50 feet of the ring, the circus' custom big top keeps showgoers comfortable with a raisable cupola that allows warm air to escape as guests relax on comfy cushions that keep incubating eggs from cracking in back pockets. Seating arrangements are assigned at the discretion of management.

Big Apple Circus

Warm in winter, cool in summer, and filled with amazing acts in every season, the Big Apple Circus's pair of Italian-made big tops contains the best of several generations' worth of circus traditions. A look at any show's cast finds a complex network of venerable European circus families passing the arts of juggling and trapeze artistry down through the years, while the tents' motors and seating make for a comfortably modern spectator experience.

You might never guess that the troupe started small in 1974, when American circus artists Paul Binder and Michael Christensen joined forces as a juggling act on the streets of Europe. They moved from streetlights to spotlights in a hurry, appearing on the stage of the Nouveau Cirque de Paris, before returning to the U.S. and creating their own not-for-profit circus in 1976 and raising their first tent in New York's Battery Park.
