We are so excited to be sharing our Virtual Circus Showcase with you, St. Louis! Our virtual show captures the magic of circus — even when we cannot be together in person. You’ll see amazing acrobatics, daring flips on horseback, and some of the best-behaved cats we’ve ever met. Plus, you’ll get behind-the-scenes glimpses of performers’ lives (and living rooms! and backyards!). Thank you for the privilege of bringing the magic of circus to your homes this year!
* Due to the myriad health and safety concerns caused by the global coronavirus pandemic, we are postponing our season. “The Trial of the Century,” which had been scheduled to run June 4 through June 28 in Grand Center, will instead take place in June 2021. *
Lawyers! Clerks! Procedural rules! Sound like the perfect family entertainment? Maybe not. But, with Circus Flora assigned to the case, the Big Top becomes the courtroom, acrobats the evidence, and you yourself the jury!
Join Circus Flora for “The Trial of the Century,” Circus Flora’s 34th annual show, June 2021! As Circus Flora’s storytellers will describe, malfeasance and misconduct have occurred in the circus tent. But all the witnesses saw something different, and all the evidence points to contradictory conclusions.
The only certainty is that with Circus Flora in 2021, you’ll be in for a wild ride of joy, laughter, beauty, and daring as we gather the best circus acts from around the world into the intimacy of the Big Top. Bring your family, bring your friends, bring a date, or bring your lawyer — you don’t want to miss Circus Flora’s “The Trial of the Century”!
