From Russia, with love

Hello people,

Hard to believe we’re getting closer to Christmas and the end of another year. To make the most of the remaining good weather, we’ve tried to cram in as many activities over the weekend, from walks in parks and meetings with friends, to the more mundane (and expensive) items like cleaning out the leaves from our gutters and servicing our car.

This past Sunday, we went to the Moscow State Circus at the O2, thanks to finding a couple of cheap tickets on a discount website. For £14 per person, expectations were low-average.

We were so very surprised.

Fantastic (and slightly risky) performances. No net? No problem!

The circus performance , “Zhelaniy”, tells the story of a little girl (played I’m guessing by a 30 something year old woman) who gets seven wishes.

Each performance is linked to what she wishes for; starting from very materialistic items like roller-skates and popcorn (legitimate wishes if you ask me), until she finally grows up and wishes for her last wish to make a boy on crutches able to walk again.

Ultimately, this is very much a children’s performance. I think we were the only adults who were there by our own choice, but it was well worth the trip and certainly value for money. If you want your child to see a circus performance but don’t want to spend hundreds on a Cirque du Soleil style show, then this is where you need to be looking!

Until next time, enjoy your week everybody 🙂
