Clowning around in The Year of the Dragon

Tonight is the night for Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey kick off their new circus show, Dragons! In honor of The Year of the Dragon, this new show features all of the things you've come to know and love from the circus with a few new twists.

With ringmaster Jonathan Lee Iverson at the helm, you'll see performers from all corners of the globe, both animal and human. Mystical dragon lore is intertwined with Shaolin Kung Fu Warriors, Asian elephants, Cossack riders, breathtaking aerialists, hilarious clowns, and the death-defying Globe Of Steel!

Performances begin tonight at 7:30pm in the Amway Center in Orlando and run through January 16.

Doors open an hour before showtime, and all ticket holders are invited to attend the All Access Pre-Show, where they can watch an elephant paint, get autographs from the performers, and learn juggling and balancing skills!
