Acts appearing will include variety legends The Skating Willers, comprising rollerskaters Jean-Pierre Poissonnet and Wanda Azzario in what is billed as their final swan-song season, amongst a line-up billed as "old friends, lost friends, new faces and some of the cabaret world's favourite stars." German acrobatic duo Chris-Iris, recently awarded the jury prize at the prestigious Leipzig Circus Fest 2011, are new to the troupe. Returning acts include Le Gateau Chocolat, the opera-singing male diva who wears lycra; aerial artists Katharine Arnold and Hugo Desmarais, who premiere a duet created specially for this season; Mario, Queen of the Circus, a leather-bursting reincarnation of Freddie Mercury; Nate Cooper, who dances on rollerskates while juggling razor-sharp machetes; and the Kiev-born hula hoop specialist Yulia Pykhtina.
