KING CITY — Have you ever dreamed of going on an epic pirate adventure and discovering a buried treasure? Cirque Italia is giving audiences the opportunity to come along on this thrilling quest in its brand-new production, “Water Circus,” with performances set for July 20-24 in King City.

Cirque Italia has sought to bring a high-class experience to communities all over the United States since its inception in 2012. This year will be no exception as it takes audiences on an exhilarating expedition in search of a pirate’s booty.

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 crowd through storms on the high seas, dreams of angelic aerialists, pirate fights and more.

Audiences will see swashbucklers balancing upside down on a rum barrel, juggling knives and even one having a run-in with a mermaid. They will be hanging on the edge of their seats during the suspenseful crossbow act and the dangerous Wheel of Death performances. 

“Will Clown Rafinha finally defeat the other pirates who are after his treasure and claim it for himself? You’ll have to see the show for yourself to find out,” states Cirque Italia.

Manuel Rebecchi, president and owner of Cirque Italia, is tremendously proud of his circus heritage and feels “extremely privileged to be able to share it with audiences” in such a fun and memorable way.

In addition, “Cirque Italia continues to contribute to the modernization of the performing arts and the circus industry by abiding by a strict animal-free policy,” according to Rebecchi.

In King City, performances will take place under the big top tent at the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds, 625 Division St., on Thursday, July 20, at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, July 21, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, July 22, at 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, July 23, at 1:30 and 4:30 p.m.; and Monday, July 24, at 7:30 p.m.

The box office opens on-site each day beginning at 10 a.m. Tickets may also be purchased through the website or by calling 941-704-8572.
