The circus is coming to town! The Zoppé Family Circus welcomes guests into the intimate 500 seat tent for a one-ring circus that honors the best history of the Old-World Italian tradition. Starring Nino the clown, the circus is propelled by a central story (as opposed to individual acts) that feature acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning and plenty of audience participation.

Sixth generation circus performer Giovanni Zoppé traces the beginning of performance art to the circus arts, with its humble beginnings in street clowns and jugglers. “The circus is antique,” he says, “it’s history.” In his case, it’s something more. It’s family history. Giovanni’s son Julien Veneto Zoppé made his first appearance in the family circus when he was just six days old, celebrates his seventh birthday this year. Folks who attend will see him perform alongside his father as his mini me, “Nineto.” While Julien’s specialty is being quite adorable, he also performs hat tricks, balancing acts and more.

“The show changes every year,” explains Zoppé. So no worries if you saw last year’s Chandler gig.

The Circus is a Zoppé Family Tradition!

The Zoppé Family Circus has an amazing, unique story. The Zoppé Family Circus emerged more than 160 years ago to become one of the legendary circuses in all of Europe. And like many good legends, it begins with a boy and a girl falling in love. In 1842, a young French street performer named Napoline Zoppé wandered into a plaza in Budapest, Hungary, looking for work. There, his eyes glanced upon a beautiful equestrian ballerina named Ermenegilda, who captured the hearts and minds of the crowd with her grace and showmanship. More importantly, this talented beauty captured Napoline’s heart.

However, since Napoline was a clown, Ermenegilda’s father saw him as beneath her and disapproved of their relationship. The two ran away to Venice, Italy, and founded the circus that still bears their name. Alberto Zoppé, Napoline’s great-grandson, inherited the circus almost 100 years later. 

Alberto’s children, Giovanni, Tosca and Carla, along with their spouses, have all been active at one time or another in the family business. Giovanni revived the Zoppé Family Circus in America eight years ago, and has since been building its reputation with audiences and critics as an enchanting exhibition of traditional European circus.

The Zoppé Family Circus is a once-a-year event not to be missed, so get your tickets early!
