Welcome to the circus!

Opal Raven Cirque is a circus and sideshow performer based in the mountains of Western Massachusetts. She's known across New England and the Tri-State area for her "Danger Dame of the Flame" variety show. Also known as the Sword Queen of Gypsy Layne, Opal showcases masterful sword spinning, daring prop tricks, and some say she can even speak to snakes. Opal Raven's one-woman circus is a unique performance that won't soon be forgotten. 

The art of the thrill

Opal Raven Cirque is a unique one-woman show experience, showcasing a mastery of sword balancing, fire and LED prop spinning, snake charming, dancing, and sideshow charm. Each act developed by Opal is completely customized and curated for the client's event. Opal can curate an event mixing each of these elements, or create an all fire act, using her variety of fire props and acts to create a dynamic show that promises to heat up your event.
