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