  • Description

    The Hungarian national circus, one of Europe's biggest and best, has been performing in West Berlin for the first time.

    SYNOPSIS: Opening night was heralded by a heavy thunderstorm, but that didn't stop the 3,000-seat marquee from being packed by an eager crowd of West Berliners. The audience had to wade through ankle-deep puddles and then suffer even more water inside. But their ruptured looks said it was worth it to see acts like the 'Five Dettos'.

    Something rarely seen even in circuses -- a trapeze artist chimpanzee, doing it just as well as daring young men or ladies in spangled costumes.

    Now for the more conventional aerial performers. No big top performance would be complete without daredevil high trapeze artists like the 'Three Laruz'.

    Everyone expects to see a lion act in a circus -- but this show was unrehearsed, when lion-tamer Sandor Komlos left the ring for a movement. The unattended lions staged their own performance before he came back to put them through a more conventional routine.

    And if he ever wants to give up lion-taming, it seems that Sandor Komlos could create a strong-man act.
