Cirque Berzerk's extended run at the Big Top in the park opened last night to ooh's and ahh's from the 1,750 circus-goers in attendance.

This year's show, under a 45-foot tall big top, benefits from a $650,000 budget and a dynamically talented cast of 150 aerial daredevils, firethrowers, burlesque dancers, all in elaborate costume (and body paint)! All that and the music stylings of Vaud & the Villains! LAist reader heathervescent summed it all up in this tweet: "Mind blowing, original show last night by @cirqueberzerk. Fellini meets Teatro Zinzanni in the red light district of the dead. GO SEE IT." Cirque Berzerk runs through July 4th.
