Under the big top since 1842, the legendary Zoppé Family Circus evokes the quintessential circus experience in a one-ring, 500-seat tent surging with showmanship, imagination, and Italian tradition. Lauded by the New York Times for evoking the circuses of picture books, the ballasting Zoppé family of acrobats, animals, clowns, and daredevils engages audiences in a storytelling show, warming eyes and dazzling hearts with sweetness and stunts. Accordions, clarinets, and enthused clapping score the show as Nino the Clown performs pratfalls and trapeze artists scare off bats during the high-flying act. Eschewing modern circus highlights such as lasers and rapping elephants, the Zoppé Circus invites modern families into a Felliniesque experience free of bothersome subtitles.
On December 30 and January 6 at 2 p.m., the Zoppé Circus conducts a special Kiddie Show with no intermission for very young audiences.
