The Year of the Dragon gives Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus an exciting show

Last night, my family and I were privileged to see Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus' DRAGONS. From the moment that the lights dimmed, my boys were on the edge of their seats. When your family sees a circus performance, you can expect drama, excitement and magnificent feats. With this production, the storyline has a lesson at its base. The four core principles of heart, strength, wisdom and courage are seamlessly woven into the performers acts.

For our family, the highlight of the show is the Shoalin troupe. The Shoalin monks are trained marital arts experts who epitomize mental tenacity. Watching these gentlemen break bamboo, metal and throw themselves through rings of fire will make your mouth drop open. With kids who have marital arts training, they were extremely impressed with the technique and skill required to perform these acts with such accuracy.

Of course a Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus wouldn't be complete without the clowns. These comic performers were at the top of their game. From sight gags for the younger crowd to subtle references for the parents, everyone will surely have a giggle or two. 

Don't leave the show early. The surprise visit from the Dragon was a big hit for my kids. After all, you don't often get to see a dragon. Remember to watch for all the attributes during the performance. Without all four qualities, the dragon may not appear.

Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be performing in Chicago throughout the month of November. The Allstate Arena will host performances from November 1 through November 11. The show then heads to the United Center November 14 through 25.

Don't miss out on this performance. After all, you never know when a dragon will appear again.

Disclosure: My family received tickets to see this show. All opinions are my own.
