“Cirque Italia has sought to bring a high-class experience to audiences all over the United States since its inception in 2012,” the news release said. “The story begins with Ringmaster ‘Clown Rafinha’ fishing when he unexpectedly catches a bottle with a treasure map stuffed inside. His ensuing journey takes the audience through storms on the high seas, dreams of angelic aerialists, pirate fights, and more. You will see swashbucklers balancing upside down on a rum barrel, juggling knives, and even one having a run-in with a mermaid.”

The show also includes a crossbow act and Wheel of Death performances.
