So yes there will be two circuses at the ‘Verizon Arena‘, Manchester, New Hampshire, this Summer.

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey” (which in the past has been in October) — and their last show in NH with elephants — with ‘Circus Xtreme‘ will be here May 5 – 8, 2016.

“Cirque du Soleil” with ‘OVO’ will be here August 25 – 28, 2016.

Well we have not missed a “Ringling Brothers” circus at the Verizon in 8 years and as of 2012 have been trying to see as many “Cirque du Soleil” performances as we can. Saw “Dralion” in 2012 at the Verizon and “Varekai” in 2014 also at the Verizon. Also saw “Mystere” in 2012 but that was in Las Vegas. So this will be our 4th Cirque and the 3rd in Manchester.

We Are Going to Dralion by Cirque du Soleil at the Verizon Arena Manchester

We are off to see Dralion by Cirque du Soleil at the Verizon Arena Manchester. In the end we could not resist and the kids really wanted to see it.

He are hooked. Just a few weeks ago we saw Mystère in Las Vegas. To say it exceed expectations would be inadequate. The kids are veterans of Barnum & Baily and the Big Apple Circus. I have seem circuses all over the world. But, this was special.

I am not sure why but Mystère was my first Cirque du Soleil experience. It isn’t as if I don’t go to big shows and there was a time when I was in Vegas, albeit on business, at least 3 times a year. Yes, I do remember that in 1996 or 1997 I was given tickets for Mystère in Vegas but couldn’t make it because I had other things to do. So we are kind of trying to catch up. After a quick chat with the kids we decided we will still go to see Barnum & Baily, at the Verizon, per our annual tradition, in September — always the last show of the trip, on Sunday so we can stay to watch the elephants walk to the train.

The Verizon is small enough that you don’t need expensive seats. So you don’t have to spend a real lot of money — though Cirque shows are, alas, expensive. Tickets in Manchester are much cheaper than the cheapest seats in Vegas, even through vegas.com, which I will henceforth recommend. They do deliver.
