The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra’s first collaboration with Circa French Baroque in 2015 won a Helpmann Award. In 2017 Spanish Baroque was a sold out sensation.
In 2019 English Baroque with Circa becomes the third daring collaboration between the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and Circa. An inspired pasticcio by Artistic Directors Paul Dyer (Brandenburg) and Yaron Lifschitz (Circa), with music from 16th and 17th-century England and featuring the beautiful voice of soprano Jane Sheldon, English Baroque with Circa will have you gripping your seat and gasping in awe. This breathtaking combination of Circa acrobats and Brandenburg musicians will have you spellbound from the first note to the last.
Join the Brandenburg and Circa for this dazzling experience of contemporary circus and enchanting English masque and theatre music where the concert hall is transformed, exploding with sound, colour and movement.
