Today we had a MARVELLOUS day out. We went to see the Moscow State Circus with the kids. This was the children’s FIRST time at a circus and turns out it was their father’s first time too. And the Moscow State Circus was no disappointment. The whole family was taken. I have to say the show was much better than I had expected it to be!
It is a 2 hour show- which you may think is a bit long for young children (all primary school age), but the kids were just enthralled and couldn’t take their eyes off the performers. There was lots of chuckling and gasping and oohing coming from Dad too.
There was upside down juggling. Which was pretty amazing. My son was very impressed.
The Ring Girls were stunning and impressive and the Trapeze artists, where simply breath takingly amazing.
Of course there were lots more – roller skating and whip cracking and general great impressing.
Personally, the Russian Swing – the grand final was my favourite, simply exhilirating.. and love the burglar’s surprise little side kick (but I don’t want to give the game away on this on, so you will have to go and see the show yourself).
The kids were full of beans the whole way home (and considering it took nearly 2 hours to get there and the same back again, the long journey was DEFINITELY worth it)!
