ALADDIN IS HE
OF NEW PAGEANT
! Gifts of the Genie Are Riv
aled in Costximiug of Bar
num & Bailey Opening
Feature.
LITTLE INTEREST
IN PRIMARIES
A new pageant, said to be some
f thing on a larger scale and more elab
i orately costumed than anything be
' fore attempted under canvas, will be
! the opening feature of the Barnum &
j Bailey circus to be shown here
'June 21.
; "Aladdin andHis Wonderful Lamp"
j is the title and, according to advance
! reports, it is as colorful as the Chinese
' locale suggests and as spectacular as
.' the narrative of supernatural wondesr
might be imagined. More than one,
; thousand persons take part in the
presentation of the fairy story and all
of the horses, camelB and elephants
of the big circus are effectively used
In the processions which precede and
follow the big scene. The wedding of
Aladdin and the Princess Badroul
bourour Is enacted in the centre of
th circus arena, where it can be seen
1 from every seat. The setting for this
scene is described as a blending of
color and symbolic effects that de
Iparts from historic exactness only on
the side of beauty.
In preparation for five years, the
new pageant has costumes of silks,
! satins, brocades and hand-made em
broideries that were made by Chinese
'workers in their native land and
fashioned according to the dress of the
day when the genie was at the beck
and call of the boy who, through his
possession of the maple lamp, gained
countless riches and the hand of the
'fairest princess of his land. Each of
the actors In the pageant is provided
with various costumes to fit the por
trayal of important incidents in the
life of Aladdin. The animals are
robed in hand-made coverings of ex.
traordlnary-beauty.
Elaborate as the pageant is, it is
promised that Jt has been permitted
to take away nothing from the pro
eram of "regular" circus events which
follows. For more than two hours
there will be presented in all of the
- spaces of the vast enclosure tricH
after trick and "stunt" after "stunt"
to make the onlooker wish for a
dozen pairs of eyes. There are new
acts in rings, on stages and high in
the riggings above the heads of the
audience and in the hippodrome there
will cavort an augmented army of
clowns with a thousand and one of
tricks to create such laughter as can
be heard only when clowns come to
town with the big circus. There are
60 of the funny fellows this year
' more than ever before.
The menagerie has been inoreased
in size by the birth during the win
" ter period of hibernation of a dozen
aby animals. Those who enjoy the
cunning antics of the children of the
jrild should pay, particular attention
to the lion, leopard and kangaroo
cages and to the stalls of the camels
and giraffes.
