In an exciting new partnership with GWB Entertainment and Trafalgar Entertainment, Circa is thrilled to announce its premiere season at Theatre Royal Sydney from 20-24 April.

Tickets are on sale now for the strictly limited season

The internationally successful contemporary circus company based in Brisbane will present two of its incredible shows during the strictly limited season in Sydney. The masterful Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus will entertain our youngest circus fans during the day as they enjoy school holidays, whilst Circa’s Peepshow will bring the intensity to the evening when the sun goes down.

“I love that we are presenting two complimentary but different visions of Circa’s work in the same week. Peepshow is hot, sweaty, sexy and tough. Moving from cabaret to nightclub, it is full of high energy acts and muscular acrobatics for adults who want to laugh, gasp and feel the burn. Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus is a chocolate coated Brussel sprout of a show – an hour of Mozart’s music children love to experience. It’s a hilarious madcap ride crammed with acrobatics and skills and lots of surprises.” said Yaron Lifschitz, Circa Artistic Director

“The Theatre Royal is an iconic piece of the Sydney theatre landscape, and its refurbishment is stunning. We are thrilled to present these seasons of Circa’s Peepshow and Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus in this special venue with world-leading partners GWB Entertainment and Trafalgar Entertainment,” said Shaun Comerford, Circa Executive Director

Richelle Brookman, Director, GWB Entertainment, said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to partner with one of the world’s leading performance companies. What Circa brings to the professionalism of contemporary circus in Australia and the world is phenomenal. They’re leading the charge in this space.

We can’t wait to share these two performances with Sydney audiences. If you think you know circus, wait until you see these spectacular shows – there’s truly something for everyone.”

Straight from the score and onto the stage, the man known as Mozart appears amid a storm of powder, tumbling and twirlng, as musical mayhem and movement fuse in this family show with a circus twist.

To those who know him, he is Wolfgang, the dart-playing ratbag. To those who are watching and listening, he is the wigged genius Mozart. Come and discover his irrepressible spirit and vibrant compositions through physical comedy and mischievous antics.

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 Circa’s dexterous daredevil artists and a live accordionist. Watch as the notes are physically lifted off the page as performers bring the renowned compositions to life under the eccentric swirl of the conductor’s baton.

Circa’s Peepshow turns the cabaret on its head, literally. Expect teetering towers of balanced bodies, extreme bending, beguiling burlesque, and devilishly precarious aerials. Join Circa as they embark on a seductive dance through the hall of mirrors that is your imagination, Circa’s Peepshow lurches from the thrillingly acrobatic to the comically playful.

Under the direction of circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, Circa’s Peepshow combines some of the finest acrobatic talents on the planet to create a playfully exhilarating ride into the beautifully bizarre recesses of your mind.
