The Vertical Rope was an acrobatic act performed on a single vertical rope.
Similar to Spanish Webs that would later appear in Quidam, this act featured a
performance by the Adagio family - Nicolai Tchelnokov, Galina Karableva, and
their son Anton. Although the act could theoretically be used to replace any
missing number, it was generally used to replace the Boledaoras.
Vertical Rope made its debut in Costa Mesa, California.
