Big Apple Circus is Back at National Harbor for the 41st Season and We’ve Got Tickets!
The Big Apple Circus is back for the 41st season, led by new ringmaster Stephanie Monseu, for their second-annual appearance at National Harbor. The show will run at National Harbor from February 14, 2019 through March 24, 2019 and will feature a brand new Mirror Room VIP experience leading into the Big Top tent, with craft circus treats and entertainment for all ages. This is not a show you want to miss, see our review from last year’s visit. The show will be filled with Big Apples’s roster of superhero talents, ready to incite jaw-dropping awe and sheer joy in audiences of all ages. Ringmaster Monseu will be joined in the ring by a multitude of fierce female-led acts and more, including:
- The “strongest mom in the world” Virginia Tuells & her husband Ihosvanys Perez in DUO FUSION, a
breathtaking acrobatic act that combines dance, strength, flexibility and passion in which Virginia handles a majority
of the lifts
• The wildly fun SPICY CIRCUS, created by Andréanne Quintal, whose team of performers will (literally)
bounce off the walls in her feisty trampoline act
• THE FLYING TUNIZIANIS, a double wide trapeze act showcasing seven fliers & two catchers in addition to
the quadruple somersault by Ammed Tuniziani – a feat only successfully landed by ten people in the world –
alongside his wife Estefani, brothers Gamal & Dandino and more
• DESIRE OF FLIGHT, a daring and balletic dual aerial straps act
• A free-standing ladder balancing act by Emil Faltyny
