One of China’s longest running and most distinguished circus troupes will be featured Dec. 9 at Mississippi State as part of the 2015-16 Lyceum Series.

STARKVILLE, Miss.—One of China’s longest running and most distinguished circus troupes will be featured early next month at Mississippi State.

A Dec. 9 performance of “Peking Dreams” by the National Circus and Acrobats of the People’s Republic of China is the latest event in the university’s 2015-16 Lyceum Series.

The program begins at 7 p.m. in the Bettersworth Auditorium of historic Lee Hall.

General admission tickets are $25 and may be purchased online at!order/c1naa or by visiting the Colvard Student Union, Suite 314.

Founded in 1953, the artistic troupe includes numerous winners of international circus awards. The company itself has accumulated more than 20 gold and silver medals, among various other major recognitions.

The National Circus also has received worldwide credit for profound contributions to the world circus society.

During the 1980s, for example, it helped change the traditional concept of the “animal circus” to a new style of non-animal acts that influenced Canada’s Cirque du Soleil, now the world’s largest theatrical producer.

Circus coaches taught their Cirque counterparts acts such as the balancing chairs, bicycle and Chinese poles that culminated in the revolutionary program “Circus Reinvented.” For more, visit
