The circus is coming to town and this one has a whole new flair that fans of daredevil antics will love. World-renowned aerialist and high wire artist Nik Wallenda is back with “Making the Impossible, Possible!” for a Big Apple Circus production that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before!

Wallenda is partnering with a team of live entertainment super producers from the circus world, Broadway and live music events to make the circus experience even more modern and exciting for audiences.

Wallenda has been featured in five nationally televised specials and is the only person in the world to walk a wire directly over Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon and an active volcano!


The Big Apple Circus returns to Lincoln Center on November 11 and tickets go on sale this Sunday, September 26. The show will highlight talent from around the globe with an award-winning cast from Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia, Germany, Russia, and the United States, some of whom have previously been featured on America’s Got Talent, YouTube and The X-Factor.  The show promises to be a diverse, inclusive experience like no other.

The Big Apple Circus was forced to close in 2017 due to financial challenges and after reopening had to shut down again due to the pandemic. Now this revival promises to be an exciting comeback for the circus that is sure to inspire a whole new generation of kids.

“Circus entertainment is family entertainment, and we want to invite your family to be a part of ours. We can’t wait to reveal the new show that will certainly mix traditional circus with modern updates,” said Wallenda.

The Big Apple Circus will follow New York State, New York City and CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of all guests, cast members, employees and production staff. Attendees over 12 must wear masks inside and show proof of vaccination. Children under 12 must wear masks.

Pre-sale tickets are available for purchase now or you can buy tickets here beginning Sunday at 12pm!
