Italian Baroque with Circa

Date: 11 Jan 2022

Florence, Naples, Venice and Rome.

Four remarkable cities, each with its own proud people, distinctive histories and architecture, and famous cast of scheming Caesars and plotting princes.

In its fourth collaboration with Brisbane’s Circa Contemporary Circus, The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra will take you on a rollicking ride through Italy’s multi-layered past, fuelled by the vivacious Brandenburg string orchestra performing a kaleidoscopic Paul Dyer pasticcio on period instruments. 

The crumbling columns of the Roman Forum and Dante’s flourishing Florence will emerge in daring new choreography that weaves the music of Vivaldi, Corelli, Brescianello into a sensual, surprising and passionate experience, a show that dances to its own unique tune. 

The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, led by Artistic Director Paul Dyer, celebrates the music of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Comprising leading specialists in historically informed performance practice from all over Australia, the Brandenburg performs using original edition scores and instruments of the period, breathing fresh life and vitality into Baroque and Classical masterpieces
