English Baroque with Circa

Musicians and acrobats collide in an explosive mix of contemporary circus and music from the English Baroque

French Baroque, the first collaboration between the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and Circa Contemporary Circus, 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 two of Australia’s leading arts companies.

An inspired pasticcio by Paul Dyer and Yaron Lifschitz, with music from 16th and 17th-century England and the beautiful voice of soprano Jane Sheldon. English Baroque with Circa will have audiences gripping their seats and gasping in awe.

This breathtaking combination of Circa acrobats and Brandenburg musicians will be spellbinding from the first note to the last.

A pasticcio in 4 scenes of traditional English folk tunes and featuring works by Purcell, Dowland, Handel, Corelli, and Matteis.
