As a vegan momma, I have never been able to take the Monsters to the circus because we don’t like the treatment of the animals. It bummed me out big time because I always loved the big top as a kid. Lucky for me, the girls are finally going to get to see a real circus this March when Circus 1903-The Golden Age of Circus comes to Boston.
In a world premiere event, the producers of the world’s biggest magic show, The Illusionists, have teamed up with the award-winning puppeteers from War Horse, to present a thrilling turn-of-the-century circus spectacular. The show has all the thrill and daredevil entertainment one would expect from the circus, with an exciting new twist. Sensational puppetry puts Elephants back in the ring as never seen before by introducing the largest ever performing African elephant and her baby, along with a huge cast of the most unique, amazing and dangerous circus acts from all four corners of the world, from strong men to contortionists, acrobats to musicians, knife throwers, high wire and much more!
|Amazing work on the tight rope!|
The award-winning team of puppeteers and model makers who created the National Theatre’s War Horse will design, build and bring to life two stunningly beautiful elephants for the show making the circus 100% ethical. Featuring groundbreaking advances in design and expression, the puppets appear throughout the show as the mother teaches her calf the tricks of the trade. Discover the golden age of circus this winter as Circus 1903 sets to captivate audiences of all ages.
