World-famous Circus Abyssinia returns by popular demand with a fantastical celebration of athleticism

and the power of speed inspired by Ethiopian runner Deratu Tulu, the first Black African woman to win

Olympic gold.


Watch in awe as a dazzling spectacle of high-flying acrobatics, hand balancing, and juggling (sometimes

with fire!) flashes before your eyes, backed by the beat of Ethiopian music. Witness the energy and

spectacle of the Olympic games, packed with extraordinary circus acts, and be amazed as the world of

triumph and virtuosity come to dynamic life!
