Coming to Youngstown - The Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus!

We have received tickets in exchange for this post.  Opinions are my own and I have not received compensation for this post.

Can you hear the calliope?  Do you see the crier?  

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to Youngstown's Covelli Center April 25 - 28, 2014 and we have a contest for tickets!

I am so excited to be able to share this!  One of my absolute favorite memories growing up was going to see Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Richfield Coliseum.  Of course the Coliseum is no longer and if you want to see the circus you could wait to see it in Cleveland at the Q in October or see it when it comes to the Covelli Center in Youngstown this month!

Amazing acrobats performing impossible feats. A prehistoric beast of mammoth proportions! Mythical creatures with fantastical wings. Elephants, lions, tigers and unbelieveable things.! It could only happen at The Greatest Show On Earth®.

The performance this year is LEGENDS, uniting iconic circus stars with living mythological creatures in a celebration of the LEGENDS that have captured imaginations for centuries. Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson guides Paulo the Legend Seeker on his quest to discover real, living legends from around the world and presents Paulo’s fantastic discoveries to circus fans everywhere.

On their journey, Paulo encounters the wondrous Pegasus and the amazing Unicorn, as well as circus legends such as big cat presenter Alexander Lacey; the Riders of the Wind Cossack horsemen; and motorcycle daredevils, the Torres Family. They all come together along with a cast spanning 25 countries in a spectacular production.

LEGENDS also boasts:
  • The Chinese National Acrobatic Troupe from Beijing impresses audiences with a number of diverse acts that include fast-paced hoop diving through astonishingly tall and impossibly narrow hoops, an elegant rolling ballet on bicycles where acrobats perform feats and build an incredible pyramid and breathtaking pole climbers executing flips and twists accompanied by traditional, dancing Chinese lions.
  • The Human Lotus Blossoms represent the largest assembly of hair-hanging artists appearing anywhere in the world today. An international array of beautiful “hairialists” from the U.S., Brazil, Bulgaria and Ukraine, they perform mesmerizing acrobatic choreography suspended only by the strands of their hair.  The act culminates in the human chandelier with all eight performers swinging simultaneously four stories above the arena floor by only the strength of their long tresses.
  • An elite super-group of high-flying trapeze artists from the U.S., Brazil, Venezuela and Mexico, The Solar Hawks present a never-before-seen double-wide flying trapeze act designed specifically for The Greatest Show On Earth. This dream team exhibits precision, stamina, strength and perfect form while attempting four consecutive triple somersaults with only seconds between each release.
  • The Riders of the Wind thunder into the arena on the backs of thoroughbred horses and are the protectors of the mythological Pegasus and Unicorn.  These speeding daredevil Cossack riders display their strength and amazing dexterity as they perform intricate maneuvers, including a remarkable five-man high pyramid, while galloping at more than 25 miles per hour in a 46-foot-diameter, specially-designed ring.
  • Under the baton of bandleader Wages Argott, the dynamic, nine-piece Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Band performs an original score of over 200 pieces of music arranged by award-winning Hollywood and Broadway composers.
    This is going to be one amazing show!
