WIN!: Family tickets to Moscow State Circus show in Cambridge up for grabs

TEN readers and their families will enjoy the Moscow State Circus’ latest and most spectacular show to date when it comes to Cambridgeshire next month.

The extravaganza Babushkin Sekret, inspired by Soviet satirical novel The 12 Chairs, promises to be an incredible journey in the company of one of the greatest non-animal circus performers on earth.

A mammoth cast of Russia’s greatest and most talented circus performers, many of which have never performed in Britain, will combine contemporary and classical circus in ways never before witnessed.

The show includes:

• The queen of Russian circus, Yana Alievia, on a revolving aerial chandelier,

You may also want to watch:

• The Stalkions (three men and two girls walk, back flip and perform pyramids 30ft in the air on the high wire),

• The Whirlwind Rubsovsm troupe who acrobatically catapult themselves across and high into the big top at breakneck speed,

• The Doktrovs, flying and spiraling in the apex of the auditorium with grace, beauty and elegance,

• The vertical pole balancing of The Alikanov, and

If all this isn’t enough to keep you on the edge of your seats, then clowns Valik and Valerik will have you falling off them with laughter.
