The wellbeing of you, our Sydney and Melbourne audience, along with our staff and musicians, remains of utmost importance.
Guest artistic director Yaron Lifschitz (Brisbane) and the performers of Circa were scheduled to star in our Series 5 Italian Baroque with Circa in October and November this year. But due to ongoing lockdown and state border closures, our planned concerts of Series 5 in Sydney and Melbourne have been affected.
We are absolutely ecstatic to announce that eight of our Sydney performances will proceed in January with dates announced soon. We are currently working with the Circa team to make these performances highlights for you over the summer.
However, despite every effort to overcome the challenges of COVID-19, Series 5 Italian Baroque with Circa can no longer proceed in Melbourne. It is with a heavy heart that we advise you of the cancellation of the following performances:
Series 5 - Italian Baroque with Circa
Melbourne Recital Centre
Thu, 21 October, 7:00 PM - cancelled
Sat, 23 October, 7:00 PM - cancelled
Sun, 24 October, 5:00 PM – cancelled

Four bold cities - Florence, Naples, Venice and Rome. Each with its own proud people. Each with its own proud past. Each with a secret ambition. Plotting princes. Scheming city states. Bustling piazzas. Gushing fountains. Hold your breath and enter Baroque Italy.
The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, in its fourth collaboration with Circa Contemporary Circus, will take audiences on a rollicking ride through Italy's multi-layered past. From the crumbling columns of the Roman Forum to Dante’s flourishing Florence, dynamic dream-worlds will emerge in daring new choreography combining musicians and acrobats like never before.
Propelled by the vivacious Brandenburg string orchestra performing a kaleidoscopic Paul Dyer pasticcio, Italian Baroque with Circa will dance to its own unique tune. It will be sexy, it will be delicious and it will be passionately Baroque.
