HOME: Russian Circus

Russian Circus

 

The Russian circus is an art form cherished throughout nations of the former Soviet Union. Most large cities have permanent circus buildings each with their own professional troupe, while traveling circuses, with special acts, tour nationally and internationally as well.

 

 

 

 

 

Popularity of Russian Circus

 

For over two centuries circus has been an important part of Russia's rich cultural heritage. From its beginning in the 18th century court of Catherine the Great, through the Soviet era, until present, Russian circus has remained a favorite form of entertainment, even during times of great change within Russian society.

 

The reason for its popularity and longevity, a quality that sets the Russian circus apart from all its contemporaries - from ballet and opera to sporting events and cinema - is its universal appeal. Circus is enjoyed by all, regardless of race, religion, language, social class, education or age. Its a truly universal form of entertainment.

 

Its for this reason that beloved Russian circus performers receive so much admiration. Names like Karandash, Oleg Popov, Yury Nikulin and Mikhail Shuidin (all famous circus clowns), are as familiar in Russian culture as those of other famous Russians.
