This documentary looks at one of the oldest world-renowned circuses. For more than two centuries the Moscow Circus has been the pride of the Russian culture and heritage as a traveling caravan of performers and animals, first in their homeland and eventually around the world. This video features many wondrous and spectacular, breathtaking circus acts, plenty of laughs, and overall crowd-pleasing entertainment. The animals performing before the crowds in this 30-minute documentary include elephants, seals, a chicken-and-goose act, a monkeys-and-ponies act, monkeys on ice, ferocious leopards, and an ever-traditional horse-and-dog act. There's no other kind of circus like the Moscow Circus performing under the big top.
