Cole Bros. Circus of the Stars Comes to Dulles Town Center

The 129th edition of Cole Bros. Circus of the Stars is coming to Dulles Town Center. The classic, American-style circus, complete with elephants, tigers, aerialists and acrobats, mystifying magic and hilarious clowns, will appear for performances on Friday, May 10, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, May 11, 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, May 12, at 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.

Cole Bros. Circus of the Stars’ new, 2013 performance features Princess Vicenta’s assemblage of white tigers, elephants with special guest star siblings babies Val and Hugo, and for the first time ever in the United States, the international award-winning high-wire artistry of Columbia’s Tabares Troupe. From Kazakhstan, the amazing Lana dazzles with illusions and Argentina’s Fassio Family present their cavalcade of captivating canines—elegant Afghans, loveable St. Bernards, and a mighty Chihuahua. The “daredevil” turns include ThunderDrome, the moto-globe of death, and The Human Cannonball, who bursts from the barrel of “The World’s Largest Cannon” at 5g velocity. Comic relief arrives from The Bermudez Troupe, who steal the show one smile at a time.

Free tickets for children under 13 are available at www.GoToTheCircus.com, and adult general admission is priced at $16 for advance purchase. General admission may be upgraded to reserved seats for $4 or VIP seats for $7. For more information, visit GoToTheCircus.com.
