Cirque Niagara

Niagara Parks and representatives of Cirque Niagara have established a partnership to bring together a new $10 million production with world-class Cirque performers specifically designed for Niagara. Starting this spring, Rapidsview Park will be transformed into a new venue capable of entertaining a multitude of visitors each day. With Niagara as its backdrop, this will be an exceptional addition to the destination offerings and another reason to visit Niagara Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world.

AVAIA is a mystical journey into the abyss of time where ancient mysteries of the past engage with the innovations of the future. It is a celebration of life and of man’s love for horses demonstrating the harmony between mankind and nature. While the horses move in a perfectly timed dressage, the infinitely creative mix of artistry, acrobatics and dance will astonish and spark the imagination. The artists not only defy the laws of gravity, they transcend the laws of nature as they unveil the secret wisdom of the future and of times past.

Creator Mairbek Kantemirov and Artistic Director Oleg Kantemirov are world renowned in the circus, theatrical and Russian film industry. They are both part of the great Kantemirov Circus Family Dynasty and their family was the first to create original shows combining acrobats with horses in a circus performance. Mairbek Kantemirov is an internationally acclaimed producer who has won numerous international awards. Oleg Kantemirov has performed in many Cirque du Soleil productions, and has over 25 years experience in both performing and directing. Audiences will see some of the world’s rarest breeds of horses carefully selected from Europe and Russia for this spectacular show.

Performances will be at 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. daily from May 20 to October 8, 2006. Ticket prices are $75, $55 and $35. Groups may purchase tickets by calling the Group Sales Box Office at 905-941-1970.

Tickets will only be available to purchase by phone with a credit card by calling the Cirque Niagara Box Office at 1-877-CIRQUE1 (247-7831) or by visiting www.cirqueniagara.com
