"Circus Smirkus is hardly your average circus. And Tristan Moore is hardly your average composer. Now in his second season with the troupe, Moore has crafted a fascinatingly diverse soundtrack to Smirkus' 2009 spectacle, Smirkus Ever After: A Big Top Fairytale." - Seven Days
The 2009 Circus Smirkus Big Top Tour brought together a memorable cast of characters for a tongue-in-cheek romp through the world of childhood fairy tales. Stunning acts performed by a troupe of 30 skilled young circus artists were accompanied by a playfully evocative score written by Tristan Moore. The show received rave reviews throughout its 70-performance tour of the northeast United States during the summer of 2009.
For a glimpse behind the scenes of the score's composition, check out this Vermont newspaper's interview with Tristan Moore. And don't miss this review of the show from Spectacle Magazine.
