Circus Flora's "A Celtic Night Circus: Tír na nÓg" was a mystical evening getaway, complete with a petting zoo, dazzling performances, a great dinner and an entire evening of engaging live theatre and circus.

Friendly farm animals grazed outside of the giant and colorful tents, which were located right off of a parking lot at Chesterfield Mall (though the location seemed a world away from civilization). A fire juggler and a mystifying crystal ball twirler entertained the curious spectators before dinner and the show.

Upon entering the tent, cozy round tables laced with salads, bread and drinks surrounded a large stage rigged with trapezes and ropes, and the sound of live music -- from strings and drums -- filled the air. The show itself was an acrobatic and comedic take on the circle of love and it weaved itself into the audience by including characters disguised as a waitress or an audience member. The high-flying acts were an incredible sight to witness and the perfect way to top off a great night of dinner-theater.
