Event Details

Enter the Dark & Magical World of a 19th Century Circus … If You Dare
 Nestled somewhere between the madness of a Tim Burton psychosis and the darkness of a David Lynch nightmare, The Carnival of Lost Souls tells the tragic tale of unrequited love and loss, set amongst the mayhem and splendour of a 19th Century Circus.
Featuring some of Australia’s best physical entertainers, musicians & singers, this “Circus Noir” spectacle delivers a twisted bent on the familiar Circus, Musical Theatre and Cabaret genres and has been developed specifically to play in Spiegeltents on the International Festival Circuits.
Making its world debut in Melbourne,, the production is backed by a highly emotive original score, taking the audience on a mystical and atmospheric journey into the dark heart of a vintage Circus fraternity where nothing is as it seems. From the breathtaking thrill of world‐class acrobats, jugglers, magicians, aerial and carnival performers to the deeply‐moving musical soundscape and songs, the underlying tale of desire and betrayal plays out amidst the tableau of the classic Big Top.
Featuring Victorian Gothic and Steampunk inspired costuming and stage design, combined with moody and evocative lighting, a magical world comes alive where the line between life and death, absolute and obscure, real and unreal is truly blurred.
Not until the final act, will the audience, nor the characters for that matter, know that they are eternally cast as players in The Carnival of Lost Souls….
