Wonderful Circus had its premiere way back in 1977(!), and since that time has been the most-performed title of Laterna magika with over 6 400 re-runs. In the current repertoire it is also the most typical sample of the art of Laterna magika: a work by a great creative team that synthesizes various components of theatre. Theatrical space is transformed into a circus tent, and the audience is drawn into the action by, among other devices, a panoramic projected picture and popular tricks involving interpenetration of imagination and reality.
Approximate running time – 1 hour 30 minutes, 1 intermission 20 minutes
Premiere – April 16, 1977
