// There is no light without the darkness…

// A uniquely original take on the Circus, Musical Theatre and Cabaret genres, THE CARNIVAL OF LOST SOULS tells the tragic tale of unrequited love and loss, set amongst the mayhem and splendour of a 19th Century Circus.

Featuring some of Australia’s best physical entertainers, musicians & singers, this is a show like no other.

Backed by a highly emotive original score, written and performed live by PLATONIC, the audience is taken on a mystical and atmospheric journey into the dark heart of a vintage Circus fraternity where nothing is as it seems.

From the breathtaking thrill of world-class acrobats, jugglers, magicians, aerial and carnival performers to the deeply-moving musical soundscape and songs, the underlying tale of desire and betrayal plays out amidst the colour and spectacle of the classic Circus big top.

Styling is Victorian Gothic & Steampunk inspired, with stunning costumes and lighting design, evoking a magical world where the line between life and death, heaven and earth, is confused and blurred…
