Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus
Adelaide Premiere | Australia | Performance
By Circa Contemporary Circus
Straight from the score and onto the stage, the man known as Mozart appears tumbling and twirling. 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.
Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus animates the mischievous composer’s vibrant scores in a wonder-filled hour of physical comedy and thrilling acrobatics designed to amaze people of all ages. Featuring Circa’s dexterous daredevil artists and a live accordionist, watch as the notes are physically lifted off the page by performers who bring Mozart’s irrepressible spirit and vibrant compositions to life.
