Showdown: The Premiere

What a start: Showdown has now officially kicked off the season with a glittering premiere! In front of a full house, the seven acrobats vied for the title of the new “face of the circus” and drew laughter and applause. If boos were sometimes heard, that was not a bad sign in this case: The audience joined in the excitement and commented enthusiastically on the highs and lows of their personal favorites* as the competition progressed.

Showdown is our first co-production with Upswing and we are really looking forward to the next few months with the artists, to working together and to many great evenings with our guests.

As with every premiere, you can find impressions of the evening in our picture gallery, which invites you to click through. A big thank you to everyone who celebrated with us and made the evening so special for the artists and the Upswing team.

Here’s to a great season!
