    Bello is Back! The Big Apple Circus is back in town with Bello Nock, named “America’s Best Clown” by Time magazine, and the world’s most exciting circus artists under the Big Top! In Bello is Back! the playfully elegant Bello, with his gravity-defying hair, trademark tuxedo, white gloves and spats, returns to the one–ring intimacy of the Big Apple Circus after an absence of nine seasons. With thrilling feats of derring–do and stylish sense of whimsy, Bello will astound and delight one and all! On the “Welcome Back Bello” committee: our own lovable star clown Grandma, the spirited Big Apple Circus Band, and winning new ringmaster Kevin Venardos, joined by spectacular acrobats from Italy, Russian wizards of the trampoline and the flying trapeze, a graceful flight on the aerial silks, fiery steeds and cavorting canines, playful Chinese contortionists, and Picaso Jr., the sensational Spanish juggler! With no seat under the Big Top more than 50 feet from the ring, even if you’re really small you won’t miss a thing! Welcome back, Bello!

    Performers from around the globe gather at the Big Apple Circus under the artistic direction of Guillaume Dufresnoy and creative direction of Michael Christensen for this 2009–2010 season’s show:

    -From America, the long–awaited return of Bello Nock with his daredevil stunts and child–like humor!

    -From Italy, Luciano Anastasini and his Pound Puppies return for a joyously jumping mélange of human and canine acrobatics!

    - From Russia, the Aniskin Troupe amaze with their bravura, athletic trampoline act — then soar into the Big Top stratosphere with their spectacular flying trapeze act!

    - From Russia, lovely and graceful Regina Dobrovitskaya performs a shimmering spectacle on aerial silk ribbons! -From America and Kazakhstan, equestrians Christine Zerbini and Sultan Kumisbayev present an electrifying riding act — standing atop galloping chargers, Roman–style!

    -From Spain, Picaso Jr. returns with his sizzling style and extraordinary juggling act — puffing into the air up to five ping-pong balls simultaneously, and catching them — with his mouth!

    -From China, the Long Twins astonish with their unbelievable comedy contortion act!

    -From America, versatile and charming ringmaster Kevin Venardos presides over the “Welcome Back Bello” committee!
