At Circus Gatti, exotic animals, hilarious showmen, and thrilling daredevils delight families in an outrageous three-ring spectacle. During the two-hour show, elephants Tika and Patti stomp to Bollywood choreography, and the Liberty Ponies knock their synchronized hooves under the deft direction of Miss Genevieve. The BMX Freaks soar through the air with but the aid of their agile bikes and their helium-infused bones, and Miss Beehaven delivers further aerial thrills while fluttering beside her hive in an aerial ballet. Hirsute humorist Laughing Leo elicits chuckles with his comedy routine, and Miss Natalia induces awe with an aerial contortion act rarely seen outside Russia.
