Gaston Fantoni

Very little information is available about this extraordinary performer. Born in France into the world of the circus, there he remained until his forced retirement with the closure of Bombast Furioso's Palace Of Wonders. Gaston was trained from a very early age for the trapeze. At his peak he led the Fearless Flying Fantoms ( Gaston, his brother Jean Claude and Ester Wells - an American), touring Europe and the Far East to great acclaim. More details will be added following further research, until then this rather tatty poster from the latter part of his career is all that remains....
