    - GET READY TO DIVE INTO THE MAGICAL WORLD OF CIRQUE ITALIA: THE FIRST EVER ITALIAN WATER CIRCUS...OUR BRAND NEW SHOW IS WAITING FOR YOU IN CICERO, IL!

    Aerialists and acrobats and Jetskis? – oh my!
    Come experience the magical world of Cirque Italia – a show like no other. We are proud to be the first traveling WATER circus in the US! Our extraordinary stage holds 35,000 gallons of water and features a dynamic lid which lifts 35 feet into the air, allowing water to fall like rain from above as fountains dazzle below! This incredible show takes place under our majestic white and blue big top tent which came all the way from Italy……..Inside we have such a theatrical and intimate setup, you just might forget you are under a circus tent!
    The show owner and founder, Manuel Rebecchi, has a deep seeded history in the circus industry. His late aunt, Moira Orfei, ran one of the largest circus shows in Europe. When Manuel came to the states several years ago, he decided that Americans needed to experience a European style show. He wanted to create something special and memorable. He was actually inspired to create the water stage while drinking a bottle of water one day!! Mr. Rebecchi knew he would need someone with great talent and vision to make his idea work. That is why he brought in Chante’ DeMoustes, COO and Producer, to help make his dreams a reality. The result? Something never before seen in the US – a cirque variety show featuring a 35,000 gallon water tank stage and performers from around the world! This incredible show is completely ANIMAL-FREE.
    So what can you expect to see at this remarkably unique show? How about a CONTORTIONIST who is able to bend her body in ways you would never imagine…. How high can he go? You’ll be asking yourself as our Italian singer stacks chair upon chair and then balances on top of them on his hands…...Our crazy clown, Alex, PLUNGES off the diving board during his acrobatic trampoline excursion! Want to get splashed? Who knows what can happen during our astounding JETSKI act……Breathtaking Aerial Divas will fly high in the sky like beautifully colored birds of paradise……. Our Laserman will be causing all kinds of explosions with his laser guns……maybe to scare away the large DINOSAUR that has invaded the show!! All this, plus thrilling highwire feats, twin juggling maniacs, elegant chiffons, and more!! Don’t forget you also have the once in a lifetime opportunity to take a picture with a MERMAID.
