Step Right Up

Two very different circus experiences hit town.

Circus freaks of Miami, take note. For those who enjoy screaming, “Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus will unfurl its big top at the American Airlines Arena with Bellobration! B&B has ramped up the usual elephant stunts and tight rope antics with some fast-paced performances hosted by Bello, a guy with hair that would make Seinfeld’s Kramer jealous. The show runs today through January 13. Tickets cost $15 to $95 and are available through www.ticketmaster.com or www.ringling.com. Call 786-777-1240 for more info.

For those who believe an animal’s place is in the wild, a kinder big-top event is happening at the Carnival Center’s Studio Theater. El Circo de Enriqueta y Agapito is a Spanish puppet-theater experience that’s as creative as it is innovative, effectively combining environmental awareness with entertainment. Created by Grupo Marionet (an Argentine theater troupe), it tells the story of a circus controlled by wicked animal tamer Frank. Enriqueta (played by Jessica Alvarez Dieguez) and Agapito (Alejandro Vales) find a way to free the unhappy animals and, in turn, teach everyone a real lesson in compassion. Tickets cost a modest $10. Call 305-949-6722, or visit www.carnivalcenter.org.
