What would summer be without an adventure or two? For a heart-pounding yet delightful experience from the comfort of a theater armchair, be sure to catch “Braveau, ” the Beau Rivage’s newest cirque-style performance.
The ever-lovable clown and tightrope walker extraordinaire Bello Nock once again headlines an infinitely talented international cast for the summer show. Like the Clark Kent of the circus world, Bello Nock combines genuine, down-to-earth humor with thrilling, high-flying stunts on the Wheel of Wonder. A lifelong performer with multiple Guinness World Records under his belt, Bello boasts numerous wow-worthy feats; among others, he currently holds the title for the greatest distance walking an unsupported tightrope at 429 feet high — and at the time he was towering above a Royal Caribbean cruise ship at sea!
In addition to Bello Nock, producer Misha Matorin of DreamCast Entertainment has assembled an all-star cast of performers from around the world to grace the Beau stage for “Braveau, ” including artistically exquisite aerialists, acrobats and contortionists. The elegant athletes twirl like tiny ballerinas in jewelry boxes as they suspend from colorful ribbons of silk that hang stories above the floor. One even takes the act to another level balancing a dozen shimmering Hula-Hoops while dangling from the ceiling. The impressive squad of trapeze artists swing, soar and tumble like gold-medal gymnasts. A quartet of astonishingly limber contortionists all the way from Mongolia bend and stack in a mesmerizing game of human Tetris. Plus, an impressive team of motorcyclists zoom around the metal “Sphere of Fear.” From the acts to the music to the costumes, this is over-the-top, Vegas-caliber entertainment.
To experience the action for yourself, hop in the car and head across the state line for an unforgettable night at the Beau.
