The Carnival of Lost Souls

03 96 760 300

11 - 12 Nov 2016

Enter the dark and magical world of a 19th Century Circuc, if you dare.

World Premiere Season in Melbourne.

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 and singers, this Circus Noir spectacle delivers a twisted bent on the familiar Circus, Musical Theatre and Cabaret genres.

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.

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.
