ST LOUIS, MO--
The tent is up and in just a few days, Circus Flora will once again return to Grand Center.
This year’s production, Ingenioso, plays off the classic tale of Don Quixote, although according to Artistic Director Ivor David Balding, the show will be “more of a romp than a classic retelling.”
“We’d been looking for a Spanish theme for a while, and Don Quixote seemed like a good theme this year. His dream, his world seem to fit,” Balding said. “The Don Quixote theme couldn’t be more perfect for showcasing all the best of Circus Flora. In typical joyful fashion, what appears to be may not be and the world in the circus ring tends to change right in front of your eyes.”
