Cirque d'Hiver Bouglione Reviews
We enjoyed the Cirque d'Hiver immensely. The show is a bit campy, but in the best way - it is very charming. The show featured acrobats, strongmen, clowns/comediens, dancers, performing poodles... more »
A short week in Paris and I decided to take my son to the Winter Bouglione Circus (Défi Show) after watching an interview on French TV. Circus has changed and animals are not ridiculed or exploited..... more »
A great show. We did enjoy. The show was understandable with poor/no French at all. Prepare to pay tip for a seat service. 2 hour show had halftime pause. It was needed for seats are not so comfortable. We were group of seven. Our 6 year old did love it. Teens did like it, but the show was more for kids. I have seen a lot of circus and I can say this is something you should see.
To be honest, I was surprised that the lady who guided the seats directly ask for tip. I have attended concerts, Ice Disney shows, operas, crazy horse shows, Lido shows, non of them ask for tips for the seat service. Asking for tip for seat service is very surprising in France. Because France doesn’t have such tradition even in opera or five star hotels. In some five star hotels, gratitution is welcome but not compulsory, not like that in US—servants will run after you for tips. However the show is very nice, great for children.
