Zoppé Family Circus

January 10 @ 10:00 am - January 26 @ 8:00 pm

| $10 – $40

Event Navigation

In 1842, Napoleone and Ermengilda Zoppé started a circus near Venice. Their old-world traditions return to Tucson when Zoppé makes its ninth annual visit in January of 2020.

Touring with its own one-ring tent, Zoppé doesn’t dazzle with high-tech effects or captive wild animals. Instead, it celebrates the European circus arts, whose appeal depends on acrobatic feats, jugglers, dancing dogs, aerialists and brilliant comedic clowning, all in an intimate 500 seat setting, conveniently located near downtown Tucson.

According to Giovanni Zoppé, the sixth-generation circus artist who stars as Nino the clown: “The show aims higher than what usually passes for a circus these days. We touch every emotion. People laugh, they cry, and they feel for the characters.” This year’s show pays tribute to La Nonna, the Zoppé matriarch who kept the show alive during the depression through her tenacity and perseverance. Get ready to witness the way the female form journeys across the spectrum of softness and power, often simultaneously.
