WOLFGANG’S MAGICAL MUSICAL CIRCUS
Created by Yaron Lifschitz with Benjamin Knapton and the Circa Ensemble
Straight from the score and onto the stage, the man known as Mozart appears amid a storm of powder, tumbling and twirling as musical mayhem and movement fuse in this spectacular show with a twist of circus.
To those who know him, he is Wolfgang, the dart-playing, pun-loving ratbag. To those who are watching and listening, he is the wigged genius Mozart. Come and discover his irrepressible spirit and vibrant compositions through physical theatre and mischievous antics.
Featuring Circa’s dexterous daredevil artists and a live accordionist, this illuminating production reinvents Mozart’s renowned compositions, lifting them off the page under the eccentric swirl of the conductor’s baton.
“It’s manic and magical in well-judged proportions, and the music – obviously – is a delight.” – The Guardian UK
FYI this production contains smoke haze.
