Details:
Dare to enter the dark and magical world of a 19th century circus as The Carnival of Lost Souls arrives in Sydney this November, leaving a dizzying path of mystery and mayhem for audiences along the way.

Nestled somewhere between the madness of a Tim Burton psychosis and the darkness of a David Lynch nightmare, The Carnival of Lost Souls tells the tragic tale of unrequited love & loss set amongst the splendour of a Victorian-era circus.

Featuring some of Australia’s best physical entertainers, musicians & singers, this uniquely original “circus noir” spectacle delivers a twisted bent on the familiar Circus, Musical Theatre and Cabaret stage genres. Backed by a highly emotive and original live music score by Platonic, audiences are taken on a brooding and mystical journey into the dark heart of a vintage circus fraternity where nothing is as it seems.

Written and produced by Graham Coupland, founder of Australia’s popular Gangster’s Ball, The Carnival of Lost Souls is a lavish production that showcases a breathtaking mix of performances from world‐class acrobats, aerial artists, illusionists and carnival characters, all whilst telling a tale of desire and betrayal under the classic Big Top.

Combined with Victorian Gothic and Steampunk-inspired costuming and stage design, a magical world comes alive where the line between life and death, real and unreal, is truly blurred.

WHAT THE CRITICS SAY:
"Adrenaline pumping acrobatics, illusions, and soulful original songs. Coupland’s Gothic Cabaret is magnificent”
Theatre People

"A beautiful yin and yang blend of music, art and physical performance. This show hits the mark in every way"
We Know Melbourne

"This is one of the best shows I've seen in a while. A feast of cabaret, circus performance, magic and haunting songs” Melbourne Observer
