For 23 years in a row, Conelli’s original Swiss Christmas Circus has visited Zurich’s fairy-tale island of Bauschänzli. Many citizens of Zurich feel that Advent only begins when the romantic tent with its twinkling stars has been erected on the island in the River Limmat. Former mayor Josef Estermann once said in his address: «Conelli’s Circus is as much a part of Zurich as the lions are to the city’s coat of arms.» There is no nicer compliment for the circus members, and so the Conelli troupe is delighted to be making a guest appearance in its home-from-home at the heart of the city of Zurich.
Like everything else, the Circus has also changed over time. So nowadays the programme no longer consists of a succession of different acts. The Gassers, a traditional circus family, are celebrating the fact that modern, youthful elements have also found a place in today’s circus. The high-quality Conelli programme has been enriched with traditional elements, the world’s leading acrobats, jovial humour and live music with the big band sound. This promises pure entertainment at the highest level, and that’s why this year’s show is called «That’s Entertainment».
