The new Magic Circus of Samoa has been wowing crowds since it opened last weekend.

Staged at Tuanaimato, jugglers, acrobats, high-wire artists, magicians, clowns and trapeze artists together with unbelievable exotic acts from India, Manipur, Ethiopia and Canada have been leaving audiences spellbound.

The presence of the tallest living man in the world, Sultan Kosen, has added to the excitement.

Tiare Tomatagi, from Vaivase, was among the audience.

“I absolutely love this show,” Tiare said.

“Personally, it was a great experience for me because this is my first time to watch the show and now after the show, I’m really excited. I just can’t wait to come back to watch the show again.”

Tiare said her father bought five tickets for her and her brothers.

 “When we first entered inside the circus tent, we took our seats and inside the tent, yes,  very big and beautifully decorated.

“We weren’t allowed to take any photos or videos but we have to obey the rules while enjoying the show.”

The best part about the show is that it is fun.

A father of two from Vaitele-Fou, Matafeo Lauaki, agrees.

“I’m amazed,” he said. “It’s truly magical. I personally love magic because I’ve loved magic since I was a kid. 

 “My favourite one, was the girl on the swing and how she balanced herself...amazing...it was an awesome magic show.”

Ringmaster Tupa’i Bruno Loyale said this is one show that can’t be missed.
