PRINCIPALS:

Paul Berthalet
(late 30s) a former soldier, now a puppeteer in the Circus. Bitter.
Strong/powerful legit baritone. Also does voices for five puppet characters. No dance requirement.

Marco the Magnificent
(late 30s, 40s) A Magician. Handsome. Full of himself. Strong high legit baritone. Excellent dancer – extended ‘Spanish’ Broadway dance number. The kind of guy who never fails with the girls.

B.F. Schlegl
(50s/60s) The hearty, gruff, and also loveable owner of The Grand Imperial Cirque de Paris – a flea-bitten touring Carnival. Baritone/Bass Baritone. A bear of a man .

Lili
(19) Young, naïve, wide-eyed innocent. Eager, with great energy and an inner glow. An orphan joining the Carnival with nothing but her straw suitcase to her name. Lyric Soprano.

The Incomparable Rosalie
(late 30s) Alto. Marco’s assistant and lover. A broad with a heart of gold – but tough. Really tough! And loves a drink now and again.

Grobert/Dr Glass:
(50s) Baritone. Doubles as Grobert, the not very nice souvenir seller at the Carnival – and as Dr. Glass, the very proper, very rich, Viennese (with accent) Veterinarian whom Rosalie might marry.

Greta
