Spain's Circo de los Horrores to Make Its US Debut in Miami

World-Renowned Show Is Ghoulish Entertainment

Miami will be invaded by monsters, ghouls and goblins on Oct. 7, when Circo de los Horrores U.S.A. debuts for American audiences. 

Ghoulish acts range from stunning aerial acts and elevated tightrope performances to breathtaking acrobatics and comical audience interactions. Contortionists, jugglers, acrobats and clowns skulk through eerie mist rising from below as they usher onlookers into a 19th century Gothic cemetery. Screams pierce the darkness as creatures from beyond the grave creep ahead. Many will pass through guillotines; others will have knives hurled at them. Some will be enclosed in cages, and still others will be restrained in straitjackets. The end result is an explosive cocktail of blood-curdling screams, thrill and awe. Featured characters include Devora, a beautiful but ruthless vampire; Hellen, a dead bride; Grimo, the killer clown who loves to hang out at hospitals and morgues and Suso the clown, the only mortal in the show. 

Seen by more than two million people throughout Europe and South America, this live touring production is a unique blend of human circus and horror featuring world-class acrobats, dancers and specialty acts from around the world. "Miami is known as the Gateway to Americas and we are excited to bring this global touring show to the U.S. for the first time," said Francisco Santos, CEO of Full Moon Productions.  "We are looking forward to transforming Miami into a city of ghouls."
