We went to see the Great Moscow Circus in Darwin in July 2012. This is a great show, with a lot of hilarious and amazing acts.
However, be aware that the circus is intent on making a huge rip-off on drinks and sweets, and you will pay double what you pay in places such as lunchbars, for even basic stuff such as water.
In Darwin, once they had you secured in the big top, they were charging $4 for 250ml of water, $5 for small icecreams, $8 for a small bucket of popcorn, and so on.
We had to laugh, one Indian lady came up to get a bottle of water, the circus seller said "$4" - and she just dropped $2 in his hand and walked off!
The seller just looked a bit stunned, but he never bothered to chase after her for the difference!
The show is well worth a visit, though - the clowns are excellent, the contortionists and balance acts are mind-boggling, and the motorcycle cage of death is just amazing!
Watch out you don't get picked out for a stunt on the stage - they do some awful things to the audience members they pick out! - particularly the knife-throwing act!
