About this show

The story of wide-eyed Gelsomina, who is sold by her penniless mother to Zampano, a travelling sideshow strongman, unfolds as they journey through the Italian countryside performing for their keep. Their perilous road trip leads them to a ragtag travelling circus where they meet Il Matto the tightrope walker who rekindles Gelsomina's spirit with a new found confidence.

Based on the subject and script work by Federico Fellini, Ennio Flaiano and Tullio Pinelli
