After insurance snag, Cirque Italia goes on in Tampa


With insurance issues solved, Cirque Italia opens its run

Cirque Italia was back on Saturday night, after its first two shows were canceled due to a lack of insurance. The European-style, big top circus was scheduled to open Thursday on the property of The Museum of Science and Industry on E Fowler Avenue. But museum officials canceled the 34-show run after circus owner Manuel Rebecchi did not show proof of insurance. Tickets sold for the first two shows were refunded, said Shannon Herbon, a spokeswoman for MOSI. On Saturday, Cirque Italia had the signed forms in hand. The shows are being held Thursday through Sunday with the final performance on Dec. 2. "We received the signed insurance forms and the got all the insurance required," Herbon said. "So the show will go on."
