ROLL up! roll up! and see the Moscow State Circus when it brings its latest and most spectacular show to date to Buxton Opera House.

Inspired by the legend of The 12 Chairs, this sensational, newly-devised show Babushkin Sekret will take audiences on an incredible journey in the company of some of the greatest circus performers on earth.

It features the beautiful queen of Russian Circus Yana Alievia on a revolving aerial chandelier; The Whirlwind Rubsovsm troupe who acrobatically catapult themselves across the stage at breakneck speed; the juggling Sherbakovs on the reverse pyramid of St Petersburg; the Doktrov, flying and spiralling in the apex of the auditorium with grace, beauty and elegance; the unbelievable vertical pole balancing of The Alikanov and the high flying bouncing bamboo bravados of The Perushkins.

If all this isn’t enough to keep audiences on the edge of their seats then the hilarious clowns, Valik and Valerik, will have them falling over with laughter.

The show comes to Buxton Opera House on Friday January 20 at 7.30pm, Saturday January 21 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm, and Sunday January 22 at 2pm and 5pm.

Tickets, ranging between £18 and £22, are available from the box office on 0845 127 2190 or online at
