Zoppe Italian family circus to hold shows in downtown Raleigh this weekend

Posted May 16, 2013

— While you are downtown for Artsplosure this weekend, you might want to take a trip under the big top.

Zoppe, an Italian family circus, is setting up its tent in the Lichtin Plaza directly outside of the Duke Energy Center. The circus has shows Friday through Sunday. 

The show features acrobats, equestrian ballerinas, a baby horse and performing dogs! 

I caught up with Tosca Zoppe, who helps run the family circus and performs in it. Check out the videos below to find out more about the circus, meet some acrobats and see me interview a baby horse who likes Beyonce.
