Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 07 January - 17 January 2016

Compagnia Finzi Pasca, Switzerland
Australian Premiere

The internationally renowned writer and director Daniele Finzi Pasca has pulled off everything from Olympic ceremony and a production with English National Opera to Cirque du Soleil. At last, Compagnia Finzi Pasca bring their mix of astonishing acts and fantastic visuals to Parramatta in La Verità, ushering in spirit and spectacle inspired by Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí, with one of his recently rediscovered paintings as the backdrop.

Combining circus, clowning, acrobatics, dance and music – with an extra serving of humour and heart – Compagnia Finzi Pasca let their imagination run wild in a thrilling experience that is sure to have made even that illustrious moustache twitch with delight.

Recommended for ages 7+

Please Note: Lockouts apply to this performance. Late coming patrons will be admitted at a suitable time after the prologue.
