Cirque Italia has sought to bring a high-class experience to audiences all over the United States since its inception in 2012. This year will be no exception as they take you on an exhilarating expedition in search of a pirate’s booty, according to organizers.
The story begins with Ringmaster “Clown Rafinha” fishing when he unexpectedly catches a bottle with a treasure map stuffed inside.
His ensuing journey takes the audience through storms on the high seas, dreams of angelic aerialists, pirate fights, and more. People will see swashbucklers balancing upside down on a rum barrel, juggling knives, and even one having a run-in with a mermaid.
“Your jaws will be dropped and you will be hanging on the edge of your seats with our suspenseful crossbow act and our dangerous Wheel of Death performances. Try not to flinch and look away if you don’t want to miss any of the excitement.
Will Clown Rafinha finally defeat the other pirates who are after his treasure and claim it for himself? You’ll have to see our show for yourself to find out,” according to Cirque Italia.
Manuel Rebecchi, president and owner of Cirque Italia, is tremendously proud of his circus heritage and feels extremely privileged to be able to share it with you in such a fun and memorable way.
