A compelling collaboration of circus and classical music
As soon as I read about this exciting collaboration, I had to buy tickets! I have been fortunate to see widely acclaimed, Australian based troupe Circa before, and was mesmerised by the skill and energy displayed in their contemporary circus act. To see their performance backed by the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra is a tantalising and unmissable event for me.
Unmissable! Circa performs with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra
Performing at the Melbourne Recital Centre, Southbank, the orchestra will be joined by renowned French soprano Claire Lefilliātre. The musical program features works by Rameau and Lully; music that is hugely popular in Europe but seldom performed in Australia.
The amazing physicality of the Circa performers
In this performance, contemporary circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz blends a diverse range of acrobatics and aerial acts into a seamless journey, supporting Artistic Director Paul Dyer's revelatory pasticcio of music from across this era, played on period instruments. Claire Lefilliātre's divine voice, virtuosity and daring will transport the audience to another era, lit by the romance and glamour of French baroque.
There are two Melbourne performances: Saturday 25th July at 7.00pm and Sunday 26th July at 5.00pm. Ticket prices are adults: $68 - $152, under 30s/students from $31. Tickets are available online: click here to go to the website.
