The Ringling Brothers Circus was a circus founded in the United States in 1884. The Circus was founded by seven Ringling brothers, Albert, August, Otto, Alfred T., Charles, John, and Henry. Ringling Brothers Circus eventually joined with the Barnum & Bailey Circus to become "Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus, the Greatest Show on Earth."
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus begins its five-day stint in Phoenix June 22 at US Airways Center with a brand-new show for its audience.
Fully Charged, the circus' 141st show in its history, is a new program that began its run in January.
This year's show features 118 performers from 17 different countries. Forty Russians and 30 Chinese help the diversity of the show. American audiences have never seen several of the acts that originate in other countries.
Another act that is new and exciting to audiences is the Human Fuse. Brian Miser is the Fuse, a self-taught human cannonball that launches from a crossbow while on fire.
Famed animal trainer Tabayara Maluenda, also known as Taba, is a highlight of Fully Charged. Taba performs with 12 tigers and nine elephants. That number of tigers has not been seen in 25 years.
In addition to the regular show, individuals have the opportunity to go to an all access pre-show, where they are able to go onto the arena floor and meet the stars of Fully Charged. Guests can then take photos or get autographs from the performers.
The circus will go from June 22 to 27 at US Airways Center, 201 E. Jefferson St. in downtown Phoenix. Tickets range from $13 to $85, for Circus Kids tickets are $10.
