Cirque Italia water circus comes to Wilmington

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Aerialists and acrobats and jetskis? Oh my!

Cirque Italia is the first traveling water circus in the US. The show features a 35,000 gallon water tank stage and performers from around the world.

The show is also completely animal-free.

Cirque Italia Media Manager Chris Morrell said Cirque Italia is a family friendly show and a show for all ages.

“We’ve got a mermaid,” Morrell said. “We’ve got dinosaurs, world class jugglers, high wire. We have a lady who engulfs people in bubbles.”

Their opening night performance in Wilmington is Thursday at 7:30 at Wilmington International Airport under the white and blue big top tent.

There are other performances happening throughout the weekend as well.
