September 17, 2003 – I would be interested in any information on what became of the Flying Hartzel’s Trapeze Act. I believe that the act performed with the Shrine Circus and last performed at the Circus Circus Casino in Reno in the early 1970’s. I was aquainted with several of the family members in Seattle in the 1960’s.
Are you familiar with the beautiful female trapeze artist “Princess Musetta?” She traveled with the Shrine Circus for years and many other circuses. I’m trying to find articles on her, but can’t find any. My brothers were also in the circus, family known as the “Great Velardes.” Did you know them?
