The 45th International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo and the 10th New Generation
January 20 - January 29
Deprived of the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival in 2021 and 2022, the public will finally rediscover all the magic of the circus on the occasion of two major anniversaries between January 20 and 29, 2023.
The Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival will celebrate its 45th Edition and at the same time the 10th Edition of New Generation, an international competition for young circus artists.
To mark the jubilee editions of the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival and the New Generation Festival, brand new acts on the bill at the famous Fontvieille Big Top are designed take your breath away!
As part of its anniversary celebrations, the Festival will feature an amazing magician who is renowned all over the world: Peter Marvey! Several times throughout the shows, he will captivate the audience with some incredible illusions that he has devised himself.
René Casselly Junior, from the great German circus family the Cassellys, which has won Festival awards twice before, and his two partners, Merrylu Casselly and Quincy Azzario, will perform a sensational three-person horseback routine.
Juggling is a discipline that requires concentration, speed and agility to catch balls, hoops, clubs or – in a more unique take – cigar boxes, as the great juggler Kris Kremo has previously done. He is returning to the Festival, this time with his son, to perform a fully synchronised act.
The many other acts will also be full of magic and surprises! Technical feats and poetry will come together to delight audiences!
