Audiences at the 42nd International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo will be treated to a very special show in the Fontvieille big top, as the Organising Committee, presided over by HSH Princess Stephanie, has invited the best acts in the world to celebrate the 250th anniversary of modern circus.

This edition of the circus, which takes place from January 18 to 28, will feature The Vavilov Troupe and its leaping acrobats in the banquine tradition – with six former gymnasts that include two bearers 
who propel three male and one female flyers into the air where they perform somersaults and twists before finishing with an exceptional triple somersault.

The National Hungarian Circus, presented by Joseph and Merrylu Richter, will showcase the Grand Exotic Group, five acrobats riding one horse, the comedian and mime Andrey Jigalov and contortionists Duo Miracle.
