When Circus Roncalli performs in front of Vienna City Hall in the evening, the square transforms into a colorful sea of lights.
The program "Time is Honey" enchants with dizzying artistry, horse ballet and quirky clowns - from 11 September to 5 October.
The big top and the historic circus caravans turn City Hall Square into a scene from a fairytale. In the darkness, the circus town is illuminated by 10,000 bulbs. The popular Circus Roncalli and its famous artistes delight audiences from 11 September.
Time is Honey
The new program Time is Honey leads audiences into a colorful dreamworld, in which magicians perform tricks with laser beams and points of light, or a horse whisperer performs wonderful stunts with his animals. That has nothing to do with common dressage. Neither does Circus Roncalli have any wild animals, but only horses and ponies.
Just as fascinating are the trapeze artists high above the manege and the impressive gymnasts with their scarves. The laws of gravity seem not to apply to the flexible floor acrobats. Clowns entertain the guests, both young and old.
The Paul family in the manege
Director and founder Bernhard Paul has passed on his love of the circus to his children, and all three siblings can be seen together for the very first time. They present a high-speed rollerskate number with amazing figures, achieving breathtaking speed in the smallest of spaces.
