What to Expect
Described as "Astounding and Sensational" by numerous clients, The Imperial OPA is unlike a traditional circus. With a combination of narrative story telling in our stage performances, street performances, busking and a menagerie of over-sized puppet animals, creatures and costumes, every show and performance engagement is unique.
With a contemporary circus approach, The Imperial Opa presents itself as a family of circus performers and musicians with cabaret influences and Vaudevillian style acts. Our performers love to entertain and want to perform, We believe that having entertainers with a big smile on their face and with a love of entertainment in the heart - this translates to your guests who in turn will have a great and memorable time.
The Imperial OPA circus was founded in the fall of 2008 and is Based in the international city of Atlanta Georgia.
Our first show was a fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
Since this time the circus has grown, incorporated as an L.L.C and continues its mission of do goodery. We have completed many notable performances at the High Museum of Art, on the Fox Theater Stage with the band “Cake” for New Year’s celebration, featured in the Zack Brown band's music video “Good by in her Eyes” , performed shows at Underground Atlanta, and the High Museum of Art , and provide entertainment at many other corporate events for auto trader, world of Coke and more.
We’ve been welcomed back year after year to local festivals such as Fire in the Fourth and Owl-o-Ween, and events such as the East Atlanta Strut and the Inman Park Parade. We also have had the privilege of working with some of the best artists and entertainers in the South East and beyond.
