The award-winning team of puppeteers and model makers who created the National Theatre’s War Horse will design, build and bring to life two stunningly beautiful elephants for CIRCUS 1903 –The Golden Age of Circus. These puppets feature groundbreaking advances in design and expression - the giant mother and her calf will feature throughout the show as the mother teachers her baby to perform in the circus.

CIRCUS 1903 –The Golden Age of Circus is designed by scenic artist Todd Ivins and set in an extraordinary and decadent circus tent. Act 1 is set in front of the circus with trucks, props and rigging. Whilst Act 2 features the tent, flagpoles and rigging being raised into the roof of the theater.

The costumes for CIRCUS 1903 –The Golden Age of Circus are designed by Angela Aaron whose impeccable recreations of original turn of the century circus costumes are truly a work of art. These were inspired by authentic photographic collections, studying historical museum pieces and discussing with experts and historians.
