The World Christmas Circus, in Royal Theatre Carré from 22 December 2016 until 8 January 2017, features the most artists ever seen in the program, living up to it's slogan “The largest program ever”.

'The World Christmas Circus', which according to circus experts is one of the best in the world, presents a world record show this year, with acts that perform their record-stunts in the ring.

Christmas finale

This program also proudly celebrates icon Fredy Knie Junior's return to Carré, his 70th birthday and 65-year anniversary in the ring of circus. He is well known as the director-owner of the 'National Swiss Circus Brothers Knie'. To celebrate his seventieth birthday he returns to Carré with his enchanting horse carrousel with 28 horses simultaneously in the ring, with a very special Christmas finale. This act has rightly been awarded with a Golden Clown, the Oscar of the circus world, in Monte Carlo.

More Gold in the ring

'The Great Chinese State Circus Beijing' presents two 'Golden Clown' winners: the beautiful Diabolo-girls and a completely renewed hoop number with a world record jump of three metres! Another 'Golden Clown' winner is the Russian Swing act with flying artists and a world record jump of 20 metres high into the ridge of Carré!

Suspense, beauty and sensation are the key words for this show, with the Carré-debut of the awarded Skokov-group: a Russian Swing act performed by eight young women, for the first time. They showcase soaring jumps from one swing to the other in their long white robes. They will be the great sensation at the 'Monte Carlo Circus festival' in January.
