Italian Baroque marks the fourth collaboration between the ABO and internationally acclaimed contemporary circus company Circa, which have dazzled (and somewhat polarised) audiences with their physical interpretations of core classical repertoire. This new show will take audiences through the music of four Italian cities and their multilayered pasts, with music by Vivaldi, Falconieri, Caccini and Corelli combining with daring new choreography from Circa’s visionary Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz.

Florence, Naples, Venice and Rome. Four remarkable cities, each with its own proud people, distinctive histories and architecture. In its fourth collaboration with internationally acclaimed contemporary circus company, Circa, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra will take you on a rollicking ride through Italy’s multi-layered past. Paul Dyer’s kaleidoscopic pasticcio will be fuelled by the vivacious Brandenburg period instrumentalists and Circa’s energetic acrobats.
The crumbling columns of the Roman Forum and Dante’s flourishing Florence will emerge in a daring new choreography from circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, weaving the music of Vivaldi, Falconieri, Caccini and Corelli into a sensual, surprising and passionate experience, a show that dances to its own unique tune.
