The Imperial Circus

In the novella I'm writing Anastasia talks about wanting to become an acrobat in the circus after Ekaterinburg. In July of 1918 what name would she have used to refer to it?

The imperial family used to visit the Ciniselli Circus in St.Petersburg. Van'ka the Donkey, a favorite pet of Tsesarevich Alexei, was actually presented to him by that circus.
