“A must-see combination of vibrant music and death-defying acrobatics!”
– ABC Classics, Australia (on Spanish Baroque)
English Baroque is the third daring collaboration between the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and Circa. An inspired pasticcio by Paul Dyer and Yaron Lifschitz with music from 16th and 17th-century England will have you gripping your seat and gasping in awe. This perfect combination of Circa acrobats and Brandenburg musicians, with the beautiful voice of Jane Sheldon, will have you spellbound from the first note to the last.
Join us for this dazzling experience of contemporary circus and enchanting English masque and theatre music where the concert hall is transformed, exploding with sound, colour and movement.
