Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Xtreme – Review

We had a thrilling night at the circus last week at the Verizon Center! My girls watched in awe and wonderment as “The Greatest Show on Earth” did not disappoint! The fun started even before the show as we arrived early to attend a media event. Clara and Mae enjoyed face painting and special treats that got them even more excited for the show.

Then it was time to take our seats for Circus Xtreme, the newest production from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey. My girls were amazed right from the beginning with entertainment from the world’s funniest clowns and acrobats.

The elephants were definitely a highlight of the show, especially since this was our last opportunity to see them perform. The treasured Asian elephants are soon moving to their permanent home at the Ringling Bros. Center for Elephant Conservation in Florida. Did you know that elephants are among the brightest, friendliest and most social animals? The famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Asian elephants can smile, dance, paint, and respond to over 60 verbal commands. It was truly an amazing experience watching them perform!

We also loved watching the Bengal tigers perform!

An act that had my girls mesmerized was The Sirens of the Sea – a breathtaking aerial ballet. The aerialists had these magical mermaid tails that floated gracefully as the aerialists were dancing suspended in mid-air.

It was non-stop entertainment and there were so many more cool performances – The Danguir Troupe on the high-wire, the Wheel of Steel, the Bactrian camels, and the human cannonball were more of our favorites.

The circus was definitely a special night for my girls that they have been talking about ever since. And of course the best part about it for me was experiencing the magic of childhood through their eyes.

There are still several opportunities to catch a show while the tour is in the DC area:
