WINNIPEG, May 30, 2023 – Mortal spectators be warned! We all know vampires have extraordinary talents and can move extremely fast, but have you ever witnessed them on-stage?

The Vampire Circus performs for the first time in Winnipeg and brings 90 minutes of innovative and surreal performances by vampires, including acrobatic feats, comical interactions with the audience, tantalizing music and mesmerizing illusions. Gather your garlic for a wicked and witty Halloween circus experience unlike any other! Experience the chills of fear and the thrills of joy, laughter and wonder as those who like to stay in the dark take center stage. The family-friendly cirque performance created and produced by Live305 Entertainment takes place at the Burton Cummings Theatre and is recognized as a “fusion of Tim Burton and Cirque du Soleil” by past press coverage.

Already enjoyed by more than 5 million people around the world, The Vampire Circus comes during Halloween – the spookiest of seasons. Off-the-wall characters and death-defying acrobatic routines push the physical boundaries of human performance to a level that only a vampire can accomplish. Acts of strength, balance and electrifying special effects will leave the audience on the edge of their seats, watching in amazement as vampires rule and run the show.

“The Vampire Circus was inspired by the magical and captivating allure of legendary traveling carnivals,” says Francisco Santos, artistic director of The Vampire Circus and a Cirque Du Soleil veteran. “Set in Bohemia during the 19 century, The Vampire Circus show is an acrobatic and comedy show full of adrenaline – a spirited journey through an abandoned cemetery where an extraordinary circus comes back to life. Populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats, The Vampire Circus is a visual vortex set in a twisted acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to a true celebration.

The Vampire Circus takes audiences into an immersive experience, plunging guests into a deep hypnotic state, fully integrating them into the performance that surrounds them. When the moon comes out, the magical mystique of the vampire triggers an extraordinary collection of chilly corpses, demonic ghosts, and vampires of prey, all resurrected for one final, spine-tingling show.

This show is recommended for ages 13+. Tickets start at $29.50 plus fees and are on sale beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday June 2 at and
