I remember my colorful childhood watching this amazing group of talented people as well as amazing animals. What a great show!
Dulu, waktu kecil, saya ingat pertama kali nonton sirkus waktu SD di Lapangan Enggal, Lampung. Lupa nama persisnya, tapi yang pasti rasanya seruuu banget nonton sirkus waktu itu. Ya deg-degan, semangat, pengen tau, penasaran dan seneeeng liat semua. Apalagi waktu itu banyak parade keterampilan binatang yang memang menakjubkan. Mulai dari anjing yang pintar berhitung, gajah yang pandai berbaris, plus macan yang gagah. Serem-serem asyik nontonnya...Pakai melongo dan banyak aaah, ooooh...karena takjub :)
Last week, we gotta a chance to watch the Big Apple Circus.
Wuhuuuu...Big Apple Circus :p..
What a cold night at that time! Bundled up with all our jackets, shawl, and gloves, we went to Lincoln Center where the tent was erected. It was a full day indeed. Perhaps because at at that time was the buy 1 get 1 ticket day :). Yuuup...we were enjoying the discount pretty much :).
Even before the show, we had so much fun already...

When we arrived, the show was just started...
And let the show begin...

Then we watched a series of performance, including The 1.5-hour show was packed with lots of interesting performance. We saw Fransesco the Clown with his musical instruments and we watched two girls contortion in a small cube (such a super flexible body indeed). We also enjoyed the trapeze troupe, Aniskin Troupe, and a jolly down on the farm dogs, ponies, porcupine and more animals. We also amazed by one performance where one lady was quickly changing her beautiful costumes just in a blink of an eye. We also have some classic-yet-still-entertaining magic tricks from the Ring Master. And I love all the merry music performed live by the Big Apple Circus Band!
The kids, and the adults, truly enjoyed it.
I was hoping we would see some wild animal performances like lions and elephants but we were happy to see the cute dogs, ponies, and even porcupine adorning the show.
I was taking several pictures with my smartphone before realizing that we were not supposed to do so. I thought it was only flash photography that was not allowed.
So, here were some of photos of the show that I managed to get...

We paid USD 25 per person for that performance and I believe if you reserve the ticket earlier, for sure you will get better price :). You can also donate and apply for membership starting from USD 40 for more benefits and discount while supporting the circus for all program they have.
Go check their website for more details and I guess they will be performing in New Jersey this February and come back to NYC this May.
So, have you watched a circus performance before? Do you like it :)?
