Carnival of Lost Souls - World Premiere

Home > Melbourne > Theatre | Musicals | Circus | Cabaret
Event: -
Enter the dark & magical world of a 19th century circus in the Carnival of Lost Souls this October at the marvellous Melba Spiegeltent.

Telling a tragic tale of unrequited love and loss in a mystical and mysterious world, the temper of Carnival of Lost Souls is best described as being somewhere between 'a Tim Burton psychosis and a David Lynch nightmare'.

Developed specifically to be shown in Spiegeltents on international festival circuits, the production will feature performances by world‐class acrobats, jugglers, magicians, aerial artists, and more, set to a highly emotive (think circus noir) original score.

Combining Victorian Gothic and steampunk inspired costume and stage designs with evocative lighting, the magical carnival world of Lost Souls blurs the line between real and unreal.

Not until the final act will the audience, nor the characters know whether or not they're trapped, and forever eternally cast as players in the Carnival of Lost Souls.

The Australian Tour of Carnival of Lost Souls will run from 19 - 28 October at the Melba Spiegeltent. Book online via Eventbrite here or see the event's Facebook page.
