Teatro Circo Price
First founded in 1868 by Englishman and acrobat Thomas Price, the Teatro Circo Price is now Madrid’s permanent circus with clowning, tight-rope-walking, and juggling acts. The circus closed in 1970, but the city reopened the spectacle in 2007 under the direction of Tato Cabal. Performers dress in old-fashioned costumes and entertain an audience of 1,900 at the one-ring venue. The circus also has a café and shaded patio that’s open late on performance nights. Located on Ronda de Atocha, the building was converted from a cookie factory and doubles as concert arena.
The circus is less than a 10-minute walk from the 20th-century artworks at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.
