About the Shows

Bollywood Masala Orchestra & Dancers of India invite you on a lively musical journey from Rajasthan to Mumbai, the vision of Rahis Bharti. From an early age he was captivated by both the rich traditions and modern interpretations of his country’s signature sound and vision. Over his career Bharti has travelled the world performing and has made each prestigious festival, concert hall or theatre into a lavish and courtly stage of his own imagining. With 17 professional artists onstage, you will experience the soul of a veritable feast of Indian sounds, featuring a mix of Indian and Western instruments such as bass drums, side drums, trombone, tabla, dholak, harmonium, and clarinet, among many others. Your feet will soon be tapping along without you even realizing it.

National Acrobats & Circus of the People's Republic of China was founded in 1953, making it one of the longest running and most distinguished circus troupes in China. The contribution the Company has made to the world circus society is profound. During the 1980’s, the Company started to change the concept of the “animal circus” to a new style of “non-animal circus” which influenced the then pioneers of “Cirque du Soleil”, who invited many coaches from the Company to teach them the acts such as Balancing Chairs, Bicycle and Chinese Poles, which culminated in the revolutionary program “Circus Reinvented!”. The Company has toured to eighty countries around the world.
