Legendary tale of chasing the immortal beauty.

Wonderful Circus had its premiere way back in 1977, and since that time has been the most-performed title of Laterna Magika. In March 2012 we celebrated 35 years of uniterrupted presentation of this piece with more than 6 200 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. This poetic story about a futile quest for the unachievable is embodied by figures of clowns incited by a magician — the Seducer — and a vision of the beautiful Venus, who takes on the forms of earthly women.
