The evening begins with a lively aperitif buffet and guests then make their way to their tables beneath the baroque-style big top for dinner (orchestrated by the excellent caterer Declerck; drinks are included), with musical interludes between courses.

This is followed by the show, which includes acrobats, dancers, a comedian, a singer, an illusionist, trapeze artists and more. 

At the end of the evening, you may get a chance to chat with David, a multi-talented clown and musician, and director of the circus, as well as his wife, Anastasia, an outstanding acrobat and accomplished artist. Together, they guide the artistic direction and imagine a new show, blending comedy, thrills, emotions and artistic performances, each season.

We give it a big thumbs up!

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.
