Come one, come all... the Ringling Brothers Circus: Circus Xtreme is rolling into town! This world-famous circus has been astounding audiences across the globe for over a hundred years. Ever since the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circuses merged their travelling shows in 1919, the legendary circus has more than earned its moniker of The Greatest Show on Earth. The show packs in every single type of circus performance that you can think of, forming a spectacular cavalcade of clowns, trapezists, gymnasts, and escape artists.

Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Circus: Circus Xtreme plays Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY, showing from 10 May 2017 to 21 May 2017.

Circus Xtreme's Performers

Circus Xtreme brings Ringling's show right up to date with the inclusion of hugely talented parkour runners and BMX-riders, alongside classic acts like the trapezists The Danguir High Wire Troupe, and Nitro Nicole - The Human Cannon Ball.

Now, the human performers can undoubtedly pull off some pretty spectacular stunts, but without a doubt the true stars of the show are The Ringling Brothers' animals. The circus has a whole menagerie of other beautiful creatures including 16 Bengal tigers, under the tutelage of Chilean wrangler Tabayara Maluenda, and six two-humped Bactrian camels.
