Spanish Baroque

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

ABC Classics, Australia

Darkness. An impeccably timed back flip. Silence. Mouths drop. Ropes swing. Brass flies. Opera-trilling acrobats, an upside down conductor, and an inside out reality of senses. Fluid grace cascading into mischievous prowess.

In 2017 we join forces once again with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra to produce a thrilling and dramatic arts feast. With a pasticcio, created by Paul Dyer and Circa Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz, of music from the ARIA Award-winning CD ‘Tapas’, this experience will see you gripping your chair more than once.
