Legendary Australian performance troupe Circa comes to Canadian Stage with the North American premiere of Opus: a work of stunning power and poetry featuring 14 acrobats tumbling, spinning and flying to the sounds of Shostakovich’s string quartets, played live on stage by the world-renowned Debussy String Quartet. With its captivating feats of effortless physicality, Opus by Circa mixes circus and classical music into an unexpected and breathtaking experience.

"It is breathtaking, it is beautiful, it is epic... An astounding experience."
