Originally commissioned for the Spoleto Festival USA by Gian Carlo Menotti, Circus Flora was established in 1987 as a professional performing arts organization by Artistic Director & Producer Ivor David Balding together with Sheila and Sam Jewell and Alexandre Sasha Pavlata. Enthusiastic support from St. Louis civic leaders proved a decisive factor in the organization's founding and later evolution. Currently, St. Louis is one of only two cities in the nation with an annual resident Big Top circus and year-round outreach programs. A cultural treasure unique to St. Louis, Circus Flora weaves together original, live music with an engaging story enacted by artists whose skills and abilities represent the inheritance of generations of performers.
