Cirque Berserk!, Britain’s biggest Theatre-Circus spectacular is bursting on to the Tyne Theatre & Opera House stage this June with eight jaw-dropping shows from Thursday 21st to Sunday 24th June.

Presented by Zippos, Cirque Bersek! is real Circus made for theatre, showcasing the finest in traditional circus thrills and skills. Join Cirque Berserk! in celebrating the 250th anniversary of the invention of Circus by witnessing this treasured form of live entertainment brought bang up-to-date.

Combining contemporary cirque-style artistry with adrenaline-fuelled stunt action, this astoundingly talented international troupe includes over thirty jugglers, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, drummers and daredevil stuntmen. The show will even feature the world’s most hair-raising circus act – the legendary motorcycle ‘Globe of Death’.

Enjoy the awe-inspiring spectacle of Circus in the stunning surrounds of the Grade 1 listed Tyne Theatre & Opera House. Cirque Berserk! is a show like no other!

“A full-tilt thrill ride that almost literally sets the stage alight…Cirque Berserk’s artistes care nothing for the slick safety and banal twirlings of much current circus… Hold your breath? At times I felt myself turning blue” – Daily Express
“A spectacle that will delight any age at any time, and whether you are a fan of circus or not, there will be something in there that will leave you speechless.” – Edinburgh Guide

“Heart-stoppingly good fun” – Time Out

Theatre Director Joanne Johnson says: “Most people know the Tyne Theatre & Opera House for comedians and musicals, but we pride ourselves on keeping our programme varied and love to welcome shows that are a little out of the ordinary! A Victorian Opera House is probably not the first place you’d imagine watching a Circus, but Cirque Berserk! is an experience designed specifically for theatre, and we can’t wait for this breath-taking show to take over ours.”
