Under the big top at the Monte Carlo Circus in RAK

Italy's Monte Carlo Circus, famed for its intrepid spirit and daring acrobatics, arrives in RAK to delight crowds after weeks of travel complications following the uprising in Egypt.

Italy's Monte Carlo Circus finally arrived in Ras al Khaimah after weeks of travel complications following the uprising in Egypt. With 34 performers, 18 acts and an exotic menagerie, the troupe's acrobatics, stunts and magic have been delighting crowds here as they did during a recent three-month tour of Iraq. Among the mangroves of RAK stands a blue big top; we go inside and meet the circus famed for its intrepid spirit before it closes here today. Photographs by Silvia Razgova
