IT WILL be thrills and spills as the Moscow State Circus comes to the big-top at Great Yarmouth Racecourse next week with a brand new show for 2008.
Among the breathtaking feats this year will be a wife firing a crossbow William-Tell style taking an apple off her husband's head.
Spokesman Peter Norris said: “The show has 35 of Russia's greatest and most flexible circus performers who have never been seen in this country before. Many of the acts will be pushing the boundaries of human physical ingenuity.”
He said the newly devised show includes the Puzanovs' springboard troupe who will be catapulting themselves across the stage. Also included are the flying trapeze troupe, Dzhusoevs, illusionists Khil and Spira and the death defying crossbow act performed by the husband and wife team, Pazpazor.
