Circus Flora presents its 26th big-top season production, The Wizard – Merlin & the Legends of King Arthur, May 31 through June 24 in the air-conditioned, red-and-white big top of St. Louis' own Circus Flora, 718 N. Grand, St. Louis, Mo.
The Wizard is a playful, delightful exploration of the Arthurian world of Merlin and Owl, Camelot and Guinevere, animals that talk and people who fly, and of course magic, love and war.
The Wizard reunites such celebrated performers as Nino the Clown, Yo-Yo the Narrator, the Flying Wallendas, and the St. Louis Arches.
The 26th big-top production also includes new acts such as aerialists Shayna Swanson and Laura Lippert, an Aerial Mirror act comprised of Peruvian twins, and the Anastasini dog act known as “Luciano’s Pound Puppies.”
Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now; discounts are available for groups of 20 or more.
