A St. Louis Tradition for Over 30 Years!
Circus Flora is a Theater Company, specializing in one-ring circus production, based on the focused energy of modern and traditional circus arts. Our goal is to create a truly American circus, with a narrative that engages audience members personally and emotionally, and physical feats that are inspirational. The world class company of Circus Flora becomes a family, preserving classical European circus traditions while incorporating innovative techniques and original new artists.
For more than 30 years, Circus Flora, a one-ring circus that makes St. Louis its home, has offered a circus show that’s best described as live theater. It’s an intimate setting that is in stark contrast to the images some people might conjure of the large Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus which performed for the last time 10 months ago.
With each Circus Flora season comes a new theatrical storyline and brand-new performances. This year the show is called The Case of the Missing Bellhop and it features a high-flying trapeze artist, daredevil stunt performers and the St. Louis Arches — a troupe of child acrobats. There will also be mini horses doing tricks, superstar basset hounds and trained pigs performing under this diverse big top.
