Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

CIRCUS KRONE WINTER PROGRAM: FEBRUARY 1996 # 1

Circus Krone presents three different shows in the building at their Munich Germany Winter Quarters, the first opens Christmas Eve, & runs approx. 5 weeks, the other two run 4 weeks each.

NICOLAI TOVARICH, SPRECHER, und MENEGEMEISTER
Literal translation, Announcer, & Ringmaster, the Ringmaster in Germany is the Property Boss. Nicolai handles both jobs with ease.

JONNY FISCHER
Jonny enters the ring with a miniature Pirate Ship that is a virtual Noah's Ark, a very fast paced act with several different types of animals.

VASSILISTOLIAROV-TROUPE
Does any one remember the Round Horizontal Bar Act on Ed Sullivan years ago? The first time I worked with these guys I asked them if they were related to that troupe, the answer was no, but they saw a movie of it.

RENE CASELLY
This is Rene's first of three acts, all excellent. This is a six horse Liberty Act.

TRIO ENDRESZ
Bring this idea over here & I can already hear, "You ain't ridin that thing on my ring mat"!!

CASELLY ELEPHANTS
Alexia, & Rene, present their three Africans.

MORANG-BONG-TRUPPE
This was the first appearance in Europe for this very unusual Teeterboard-Flying Act came from The Pjongjang Circus in North Korea. Man wouldn't Johnny Hartzell have loved this one.

All elepnts are oiled with something for their skin, some trainers over there, also do it to decorate the elephants for the ring.

I remember the Ibarras, both on the ground, and in the air, they had five bars, the act these people copied was from the '50's.
