Call me naive, but didn't realise the extent to which animals were included in the performances. Lions and tigers and bears (quite literally). Was really sad to see. Also they had tigers "on display" before the performance and during intermission for people to take photos with. It's 2018?
This was a massive shame as the rest of the circus was fantastic! the performers were talented and this would have been more than adequate entertainment. Overall struggled to get past seeing the animals treated in this way and forced to perform.
If you do still want to go, you can book tickets online in advance (i got a pretty decent seat for 1500). Shop around as a lot of the websites vary. Check out the trip advisor forums for the best english websites to purchase tickets. A few of them require you to have a Russian mobile phone number. Performance starts 7pm and runs for 2.5 hours, including one intermission.
