Review

A treasure of Russian culture… deems the circus a performing art, on the same level as opera or ballet… one of Russia's great cultural exports. --The Washington Post

A carnival of animals from land and sea mingle with acrobats and trainers in a melange of performance art that leaves viewers wondering why the Ringling Bros. elephants command so much attention… a terrific way for families to see the extravaganza that is the Moscow Circus. --Billboard Magazine

After two hours of watching the Moscow State Circus I realized why others had bored me- they were simply not in the same class… when the Soviet Union disintegrated the circus did not fall apart with it. The Russian people do not have many reasons to smile, this famous institution is one of them. --The Toronto Sun

After renting this from the library several times, we bought this DVD for my son for Christmas. It is very corny and looks like in was made in the early 1990s, but my 3 year old son absolutely loves this DVD. It keeps him entertained for hours and loves to sing along to the songs. This is great for a toddler.

No words - just music and poor picture quality of some not so great circus acts. Even the grandchildren found it rather boring.
