New York's long running circus was originally the brainchild of Russian-born Gregory Fedin, whose goal was to train "first generation" performers in the traditions of circus acts. The show has been running since 1977, growing larger and larger over the years until it eventually became the New York staple it is today. The Big Apple Circus combines clowns, trapeze artists, animals galore and everything you'd expect from a classic circus, with a touch of modern flair inspired by current popular shows such as Cirque du Soleil.
