Next Thursday night (1/10), the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus returns to the Amway Center with a brand-new production, "Built To Amaze!" Last month, I had the opportunity to visit Ringling's winter rehearsal home at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa and get a a behind-the-scenes look at the latest edition of "The Greatest Show On Earth."

The following video features a sneak-preview of the opening production number, rehearsal footage of some of this year's new specialty acts, and interviews with key members of the circus' creative staff.

See below the video for pricing and schedule details direct from the official press release.
