The opening of the Kirov Circus took place on December 23, 1977. The model project, developed in Moscow by the Central Institute of Spectacular Structures (architect L. Segal), was based on a similar type of circus in other cities of the country. For example, only in 1971 four similar buildings were commissioned: in Tver, Kursk, Ryazan and Krasnoyarsk. The projected capacity of the circus is 2000 seats, and although in fact the number of seats during construction has been reduced to 1600, it is now considered the largest auditorium of the city. In the construction of the circus, local design and construction organizations, as well as the largest enterprises of the city (the general contractor SMU – 6 “Kirovzhilstroy”, the plants “Lepse”, “Selmash”, the Kirov Tire Plant, the plant JBI, the machine-building plant named after May 1 and Other). An attachment to the terrain was made by Kirovgiprohodselstroy, the author of the project E.A. Dick. “Kirovmebel” was engaged in decorating wooden foyer, wardrobe, finishing buffets for spectators. Furniture in the make-up rooms, hotel and administration offices was brought from the Kotelnicheskaya furniture factory, and Kirov sculptors Vladimir Bondarev and Klara Kocienko took up the foyer decoration. Two large panels on the circus theme decorate the left and right parts of the spacious foyer.
