Plus, the Executive Producers and Producers have also taken extra measures to ensure the event provides a positive contribution towards the community and the Malaysian economy. In line with the goverment’s call for Malaysians to help the nation overcome its debts, a part of all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the goverment’s Tabung Harapan Malaysia. The Moscow Circus shall then equally match the amount collected with the hope that a total of at least RM1,000,000 will be raised for the fund during the tour.
Tickets to the show can be purchased at an affordable price from as low as RM50 and up to RM280 for top tier tickets. To complete the circus experience, the entire performance will take place under a 2,700-seater fully air-conditioned circus Big Top, which will be the largest circus tent to ever exist in Malaysia.
