Short answer - it is possible!

Circus Roncalli, a German circus established in the 1970s, began with the traditional attractions that included animals. As people became more aware of the lives the circus animals lead, those acts began to decline.

Yet, one of the draws of a circus is seeing animals that are not part of our daily lives. Here is where holographic technology steps in. I'd be interested in seeing this show. Of course, after seeing the video, my first thoughts were of dragons. Wouldn't that be cool?

The company phased out using live animals in its shows back in 2017, but the addition of holograms is a relatively new development. Roncalli partnered with a company called Bluebox to install a holographic display system built by Optoma. A total of 11 Optoma devices make up the system, and the results are truly something to behold:
