Italian Baroque with Circa

A must-see combination of vibrant music and death-defying acrobatics!

ABC CLASSICS, AUS (On Spanish Baroque with Circa)

Florence, Naples, Venice and Rome. Four remarkable cities, each with its own proud people, distinctive histories and architecture. In its fourth collaboration with the internationally acclaimed contemporary circus company, Circa, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra will take you on a rollicking ride through Italy’s multi-layered past. Paul Dyer’s kaleidoscopic pasticcio will be fuelled by the vivacious Brandenburg period instrumentalists and Circa’s energetic acrobats.

The crumbling columns of the Roman Forum and Dante’s flourishing Florence will emerge in a daring new choreography from circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, weaving the music of Vivaldi, Falconieri, Caccini and Corelli into a sensual, surprising and passionate experience, a show that dances to its own unique tune.


World premiere Sydney, Australia – January 2022
