Halloween ‘Carnivale’ at Brooklyn College

You’ll be oohing and aahing this Halloween — and not over any costumes.

Cirque Le Masque presents “Carnivale,” a gravity-defying, circus-style show at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College on Oct. 31.

“Carnivale” takes audiences to the streets of Rio de Janeiro during the pre-Lenten season, where they become participants in the world’s biggest party, complete with colorful lighting, special effects, and an original score.

The sophisticated, European-style circus features an international cast of colorfully costumed jugglers, acrobats, aerialists and clowns performing gasp-inducing actors of balance, grace, strength and agility.

This being Halloween and all, children are encouraged to wear their costumes to the show and join in the circus shenanigans, too.

Cirque Le Masque’s “Carnivale” at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College [2900 Campus Rd. at Hillel Place in Flatbush, (718) 951-4500], Oct. 31 at 3 pm. Tickets $27-$37 in advance, $30-$40 at the door, and half off for children 18 and under. For info, visit www.BrooklynCenterOnline.org.
