This special edition tour, also known as The Moscow Circus Tour of Malaysia 2018/19, is the brainchild of Executive Producers Dato’ Sri G Radakrishnan and Yahna SG, together with Producers Kenneth Lee and Mr Victor Pilipovic. For the first time in history, The Moscow Circus will bring together troupes from two of the best and most well-known Russian circus companies - the Bolshoi Circus and the Nikulin Moscow Circus.
“We are thrilled to announce The Moscow Circus Tour of Malaysia that will be held for the next eight months.

We also look forward to bringing engaging activities during our tour stops around the country to showcase the acts and connect closely with the audiences along with our partners. It will truly be an exciting journey and an unforgettable experience!” said Kenneth Lee, Producer of The Moscow Circus Tour of Malaysia 2018/19.
Universally known as the capital of circus arts, Russian circus artists have, for decades, been thrilling audiences across the globe with spectacular performances full of power, artistry and world-class athletic skills. Visitors both young and old will be transported into a fantasy world through a unique array of performances by trapeze artists, jugglers, acrobats and gymnasts, all vying for attention and often at the same time!
Never-before-seen acts that audiences can look forward to include thrilling death-defying feats by aerialists, high wire walkers, trapeze artists and Russian Swing acrobats, along with specially featured highlights such as a mesmerizing juggling performance by famous juggler Semen Krachinov, high octane roller skaters, gravity challenging diablo spinners and mind-boggling illusionists, all held together by one of Russia’s most well-known clowns, Armen Asiryants.
Each performance will feature a two-hour long world-class programme encompassing nearly 40 professional performers guaranteed to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
“It will be great opportunity for families, couples as well as groups of friends to enjoy an exciting experience of a lifetime, which is why we are offering affordable ticket prices from as low as RM50 and shows that lasts for over 24 days at each city. We do not want anyone to miss their chance of attending one of our shows and be in awe of the unique feats you won’t be seeing anywhere else,” added Kenneth Lee.
The Executive Producers and Producers have also taken extra measures to ensure the event provides a positive contribution towards the community and the Malaysian economy. In line with the government’s call for Malaysians to help the nation overcome its debts, a part of all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the government’s Tabung Harapan Malaysia.
The Moscow Circus shall then equally match the amount collected with the hope that a total of at least RM1,000,000 will be raised for the fund during the tour.
“We are grateful to be given this opportunity to bring fellow Malaysian residents an internationally known group of artists to present an electrifying set of performances. Equally importantly, we also wish to play our part by contributing an amount from our sales to the government’s Tabung Harapan. Therefore, those who purchase our tickets will not only get to enjoy an unforgettable event, but will also be doing a good deed for the nation at the same time,” said Dato’ Sri G Radakrishnan, Executive Producer of The Moscow Circus Tour of Malaysia 2018/19.
Tickets to the show can be purchased at an affordable price from as low as RM50 and up to RM280 for top tier tickets.
