Circus in Paris for a spectacular night of traditional skills and family fun
The beautiful Cirque d'hiver, or 'winter circus' can be found at 110 rue Amelot, just a short 15 minute stroll from Hotel de la Herse d'Or, and the design was conceived by acclaimed architect Jacques Ignace Hittorff. The circus was opened on December 11th 1852 by Emperor Napoleon III and was named the Cirque Napoléon until 1870 when the prestigious venue was renamed Cirque d'Hiver.
The famous Cirque d'Hiver Bouglione is one of the most exciting ways to spend an evening in Paris. One of the few traditional circuses left today, it features clowns, dancers and acrobats as well as some wonderful animal acts. These include an incredible dog act which is a favourite with children of all ages, the famous Hans Suppmeier and his tigers, and Joseph Bouglione and Regina Bouglione with their magnificent horses.
Allow Ringmaster, or Monsieur Loyal, Michael Palmer to introduce you to the hilarious clowns Fumagalli, Alberto Caroli and Les Bobylev. The Salto Dancers are a highlight and the live orchestra sets the scene beautifully. See breathtaking acrobats Les Frères Curatola, plus many other awe inspiring performers during your night out in Paris.
