Imagine Two International Circus Jubilees Combined this January: It’s phantasmagoric!

It’s just the tip of the iceberg that has just been revealed. The first elements of the two Grand Circus Jubilees combined into one phantasmagoric Festival to open the first month of 2023 with a blast. The 45th Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival and 10th New Generation Festival will be taking place from Friday 20th to Sunday 29th January 2023. 

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!

And you the audience more than deserve this reward after being deprived of the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival in 2021 and 2022. So get ready for something uniquely captivating. You will be able to enjoy the thrills of the acclaimed American artist who will do a lap of the ring atop the world’s tallest unicycle – 8.8 metres in the air! Excitement guaranteed!

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!

The International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo

Created in 1974 by Prince Rainier III of Monaco, the International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo has become the most prestigious circus event in the world. Doubly prestigious with these combined Jubilees in 2023. And we await with baited breath the most respected prize in the circus world, the “Golden Clown” (Clown d’Or) award.
