Each year, Circus Harmony, St. Louis’ only social circus school located in City Museum, pulls out all the stops for a full-length show featuring dozens of amazing young performers, plus live music! (January 18-19, 25-26. Saturday shows at 2 and 7 p.m., Sunday shows at 2).

Your ticket to this show also includes admission to City Museum, so bring the family and explore before and after Verismo.

Circus Harmony graduates are currently performing around the world and the school has put St. Louis on the map when it comes to cranking out the next generation of circus talent. It’s truly inspirational.

This year in Verismo, you can see 13-year old Kyran Walton, the only person in St. Louis who can do a marinelli bend (contortion trick where you can balance yourself with just your teeth!); 17-year old Kellin Quinn, named one of the top 40 jugglers in the world!; 19-year old Donesha Buhr, premiere hula hooper; among many, many others.

Many of the children performing cannot afford the cost of classes or need assistance with transportation etc. Your generosity and the continuing support of great art, social and business organizations can help St. Louis youngsters continue discovering their true talents!

You can purchase your tickets at the door, but why take a chance? Click here to purchase online.
