Circus! One of the most ancient of the performing arts, the messenger from deep childhood of humankind. The circus preserves it's magic power - even the tired and seen-it-all-in-the-world parents, coming in the circus with their kids, turn into kids themselves... somewhere deep in their souls...

This panorama was shot on the main arena of the Moscow Nikulin's Circus, located on the Tsvetnoy Boulevard, in the very center of Russian capital. It's history counts over 120 years and all this time it remains extremely popular among Moscovites and the guests of the city.

You can see a part of the rehearsal of new performance, which will be based on an ice theme - which is quite natural, taking into account that the winter is approaching :)

I was lucky to get backstage and witness the kitchen where this magic is being cooked to share my astonishment and excitement with you.

Цирк! Одно из древнейших исскуств, связанных с представлением, или, как сейчас говорят, перформансом. Оно пришло к нам из глубины веков, сохранив свою магию - сегодня, в наш искушенный век, сердца самых закалённых родителей сжимаются в ожидании чуда, когда они приходят на цирковое представлдение вместе со своими детьми.

На панораме вы видите фрагмент репетиции новой программы, которая готовится к постановке в Московском Цирке Никулина на Цветном бульваре. Это представление будет построено вокруг ледовых номеров - что логично, если принять во внимание приближающуюся зиму, во время которой и будет идти эта программа.
