In its 27th big top production, St. Louis’ own Circus Flora goes where no circus has gone before: to the moon. Inspired by Georges Méliès’ groundbreaking 1902 film, A Trip to the Moon, Circus Flora's creative team captures the film’s imaginative spirit under the big top. Circus Flora’s A Trip to the Moon borrows this iconic piece of cinematic history and Méliès’ artistic instruments to construct the visual styling, costuming and narrative elements for its 2013 production. A Trip to the Moon incorporates a world-class roster of performers and musicians into its reimagination of the film, including favorites The Flying Wallendas on the high wire, The Flying Pages, the beloved Johnny Peers & the Muttville Comix, star equestrian Lisa Dufresne, Carlos Svenson and his Magical Flying Goats, Yo-Yo the Narrator, the St. Louis Arches, “International Man of Mirth” Rob Torres, Mad Scientist (and juggler) Kellin Quinn, aerialists Andrew Adams and Helena Reynolds and the Circus Flora band led by Janine Del’Arte.
