Designed by Emile Ricquier and inaugurated by Jules Verne in 1889, the municipal circus of Amiens was designed as a multi-purpose building to welcome circus shows and various public meetings. Following a public order launched by the town of Amiens with the support of the Ministry of Culture, the project of the Austrian artist, Ernst Caramelle, was selected for the coloration of the Jules Verne Circus. Those works, started in March 2002, lasted twelve months. From now on, the renovated circus can accommodate 1,700 spectators in circus layout and 1,400 in theatre layout.
