For this edition we’ve combined a number of mythical themes and stories into a lavish production of sights and sounds unlike any show we have ever created,” says producer Nicole Feld.

Mythology meets reality as Paulo encounters the wondrous Pegasus and the amazing Unicorn, as well as circus legends such as big cat presenter Alexander Lacey, the Riders of the Wind Cossack horsemen, and motorcycle daredevils, the Torres Family. They all come together along with a cast spanning 25 countries in a spectacular production.

Experience magnificent Asian elephants, a 20-acrobat troupe perched atop only a pair of bicycles, and a never-before-seen, double-wide, high-flying trapeze act.

“A legend is something so magical and larger than life that once you see it, you never forget it. The talent in this show is unprecedented and embodies the name LEGENDS,” says producer Alana Feld. “My sister and I were speechless when we saw these acts the first time. We searched the world for the best of the best and put them together in an unforgettable show.”
