Cirque Italia Brings Water Circus to Town




The Cirque Italia, the first traveling “water circus,” is bringing its newest show, the Gold Unit, to northwest Florida from March 29 to April 15. Shows will be held from Thursday to Sunday, alternating weekends in Panama City, Mary Esther and Pensacola.

This family-friendly performance features a state-of-the-art water curtain whose every droplet is controlled to display words and patterns as the waterfalls to the “lagoon” below. It serves as an ultramodern backdrop for the Cirque Italia performers, who come from all over the world. 

“This production will feature acts all the way from Russia to Mexico. We believe in multiculturalism as one of our strongest assets,” says Cirque Italia’s Maria Raggi. “This new stage by itself is enough to amaze the most demanding audience, and synchronized with the most creative display of superhuman talent, the result is simply out of this world.”

The show includes an Avatar; two mermaids; a contortionist; a “wheel of death” performance; trick roller skaters; a futuristic laser act; aerial performances; and lifelike elephant puppets. 

“Although we don’t use animals in our performances, these puppets are so well made, you might just think they are real,” Raggi says. 

Tickets cost $10 to $50, depending on availability. Cirque Italia offers one free child admission with every full-priced paying adult ticket in levels 2 or 3.
