A cage is wheeled into the centre of the stage. A not very willing assistant is placed inside the cage. The cage is completely covered with a large cloth, and chains hanging from the theatre flying area are connected to the top of the cage. The entire cage, dangling from the chains is lifted high into the air above the stage.
The performer then suddenly whisks away the cloth, revealing that the girl is gone, and in her place is an eight hundred-pound Siberian tiger, snarling inside the cage, completely filling it.
