This spectacular new concept combining live opera singers with circus artists has not been seen anywhere in the world before. Taking well-known works from operas, musicals and other classic songs and placing them amongst dynamic physical, character-based performance brings the music and the circus acts to audiences from a completely fresh and exciting perspective.
This extraordinary performance combines an innovative fusion of circus, opera, drama, beauty, comedy and magic including: lyrical, slow balancing routines to the Flower Duet from Lakme, an astounding aerial routine to The Queen of the Night aria from The Magic Flute, a comedy of acrobats and jugglers flying about to The Brindisi from La Traviata and exhilarating tumbling and acrobatics combined with The Ride of the Valkyries by Wagner. The finale of Nessun Dorma from Turandot is not to be missed. All performers are involved in all aspects of the acts: for example an opera singer in the trapeze, or a singer being carried by acrobats, whilst singing. Overall, the incorporation of all artists in the scene is unique and spectacular.
Opera Circus features internationally acclaimed artists including high-flying physical performers, the dynamic and daring duo Acrobatica and some of Australia’s most talented operatic singers. Together these dynamic young artists offer a show that is unlike any circus or opera that has been seen - a totally new option for arts and entertainment.
This act showcases Australia’s diversity and sophistication and promises to leave the audience calling out for more!
