FATA MORGANA CIRQUE-STYLE EXTRAVAGANZA COMES TO BEAU RIVAGE JUNE 26 – AUGUST 19
Production Show for All Ages Produced Exclusively for MGM Resorts Gulf Coast Casino
BILOXI, Miss. – June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Bello Nock, comedic daredevil and circus star, for the first time ever walked 32 stories above and 360 feet across Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi today. The high wire walk kicks off Beau Rivage’s summer production show FATA MORGANA which will appear in the Beau Rivage Theatre June 26-August 19.
FATA MORGANA, an Italian phrase meaning optical illusion, will feature an international ensemble cast including the stunning Bolshoi Moscow Circus dancers, award-winning acrobats, aerialists from Canada and daring motorcyclists from the Ukraine. The show will feature more than a dozen acts including hand-balancing, the Cyr Wheel, the Sphere of Fear motorcycle globe and the Wheel of Wonder to wow crowds. At the center of FATA MORGANA is international circus star Bello Nock.
As for the high wire act, Bello Nock is one of only five people in the world trained to perform such a feat. Easily recognized by his mile-high blonde hair, Nock holds a Guinness World Record for the first-ever high wire walk across a cruise ship at sea and he has more than four million views on YouTube for footage of his unbelievable toe hang underneath a helicopter this past February. He is one of only a handful of performers to win a Silver and a Gold Clown at the prestigious Monte Carlo International Festival hosted by Princess Stephanie and Prince Albert of Monaco. Equally accomplished at generating breathtaking thrills and laughter, Bello is a true mix of amazing comedian and daredevil. Recognized by TIME magazine as “America’s Best Clown,” Nock kept millions around the world laughing during his time as a headline performer with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. After eight years with the “Greatest Show on Earth,” and star of his own traveling show, he joined DreamCast Entertainment.
“DreamCast Entertainment has produced several successful cirque-style shows for Beau Rivage including Balagan and New Ezuru. This time we wanted to create a summer production featuring more daring and death-defying stunts than ever before. This show has been exclusively produced for MGM Resorts and we’re looking forward to bringing 64 exciting performances in eight weeks to the Beau Rivage Theatre,” said DreamCast Entertainment President Misha Matorin, the show’s creator and producer.
