The Magic of Ma’Ceo
Jan 11 @ 3:30 pm – Jan 13 @ 8:30 pm

Described by the Ocala Star- Banner -as an “Equine Cirque du Soleil”, the renowned show has recently performed in Las Vegas, NV, Honolulu, HI and all over North America. This theatrical European style, equestrian themed, Cirque show tells a beautiful seamless story with a contemporary blend of Acrobatics, Aerial, Dance, and Equestrian Arts woven together to the acoustic beats of rich Spanish guitar. As a break from today’s age of frills and technology, generations of skill and grace take you back to the roots of Gypsy Circus Heritage. From daredevil Cossack riding to the beautiful Aerial chandelier, we invite you to take a step back in time and experience the enchanting world of Cirque Ma’Ceo!

Her sense of time and pacing make her a consummate musician’s singer—she knows how to work with a band, instead of asking it to merely back her. Performing with Ms. James will be the La Lucha trio. La Lucha won the “Best in the Bay” Jazz ensemble award from Creative Loafing 4 consecutive years. Mark Feinman, drums, Alejandro Arenas, bass and John O’Leary, piano.
