CircusWest & Verve Inspired Circus are honoured to be back again this year at the Vancouver Opera Festival and to debut our latest circus creation, Cupid, A Love Story. It is the story of Cupid and how he fell madly in love with Psyche much to the chagrin of the Goddess of Love Venus — who is jealous of the attention the beautiful Psyche receives. The show features statues that come to life to showcase astounding aerials, fire spinning, partner acrobalance, object manipulation and daring acrobatics. Love is in the air and is brought to you by CircusWest and Vancouver Opera.

James and the Giant CIRCUS Peach is a story of a young boy who befriends a colony of eccentric giant bugs who live inside a gigantic peach, and chronicles their travels around the world.

Along the way, James witnesses daring acrobatics, stunning aerials, mesmerizing object manipulation, and feats of balance that astound and amaze.
