Dubai, 22 July 2019 – The legendary Circus Roncalli led by the talented Bernhard is set to perform this summer in Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, Austria. Visitors will get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to witness extraordinary circus performances and shows throughout the months of July and August.
Swarovski Crystal Worlds is hosting a selection of trailers from Bernhard Paul's collection. Visitors will get a chance to learn the stories behind the balcony trailer or the historic showman's trailer, coming from Cologne. The artists, jugglers, clowns, illusionists, and contortionists of circus Roncalli provide visitors with a unique glimpse of behind the scenes circus life at Swarovski Crystal Worlds.
"When creative minds pool their energies, it usually produces tremendous results," says Paul Bernhard, reflecting on the upcoming collaboration with Swarovski. "The garden is already a magnificent setting. Strolling through the gardens, if you catch sight of a circus trailer with a couple sitting in front practicing their juggling, while a tightrope acrobat performs amazing tricks up above you, it's an experience you won't easily forget."
Circus Roncalli is a place that stays true to its history while combining the spirit of the future. This circus world is not overwhelmed by a modern style but parodies it instead. This is exactly how Circus Roncalli creates a balance between the worlds of the past and future. Its success is large because of the circus director Bernhard Paul, whose sole aim is to create an unforgettable experience for the audience.
Stepping into the world of Circus Roncalli is like traveling into a place where time is undefined and where things co-exist peacefully, far from the chaos and close to harmony. Circus Roncalli is much more than your average circus show, where everything has a story behind it and brings memories back to life. Everything you see flows like a picture running in motion, almost like watching a movie, because what Bernard Paul really collects is not objects, but stories.
Circus Roncalli is one of the many special art experiences to be exhibited and experienced at Swarovski Crystal Worlds this summer, including the many permanent art installations featuring Swarovski crystals that make this beloved attraction a moment of wonder to over fourteen million visitors from all around the world. Visitors are surprised, touched, and perhaps even transformed by the crystal in all its facets. Swarovski Crystal Worlds is a wonderous place that makes for a great family outing for anyone visiting Austria this summer.
Entry to the park for adults is 19 Euro, and the park is open from 8:30 am – 7:30 pm daily, and until 10:00 pm during the months of July and August.
