Tumble and fly through the magical world of Mozart on stage, and experience the composer's irrepressible spirit and vibrant compositions through physical comedy and mischievous antics.
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 one-hour family show with a circus twist.
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. See the notes physically lifted off the page as performers bring the renowned compositions to life amidst seeming chaos, all under the eccentric swirl of the conductor's baton.
Whether it's through acrobatics, aerial work or hula hooping, you know you'll see beauty and strength in equal measure... A great introduction to contemporary circus, and Mozart, for younger audiences.
Designed to amaze people from the age of three and upwards, Wolfgang's Magical Musical Circus reinvents the composer's magical music in a skillful and illuminating show featuring the dexterous daredevil artists and accordionist of Australia's Circa Contemporary Circus.
Circa is at the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus, pioneering how extreme physicality can create powerful and moving performances. They continue to push the boundaries of the art form, blurring the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus, and leading the way with a diverse range of thrilling creations that "redraw the limits to which circus can aspire" (The Age).
For circus thrills with a classy, classical touch, "Wolfgang" hits the right notes.
