Background


Designed to amaze people from the age of three and upwards, Wolfgang reinvents the composer's magical music in a skilful and illuminating show featuring two of Circa's dexterous daredevil artists.


Joined onstage by a musician, they initiate audience participation with the wave of a conductor's baton.


Since 2010, the Australian ensemble 'at the forefront of contemporary circus' (Guardian) have presented five hit productions at the Barbican under Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz.


Synopsis


Straight from the score and onto the stage, the man known as Mozart appears amid a storm of powder, tumbling and twirling, 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, pun-loving ratbag.


To those who are watching and listening, he is the wigged genius Mozart.


Come discover his irrepressible spirit as he rediscovers his own vibrant compositions, the notes lifting off the page through the physical comedy and mischievous antics of diving and swooping acrobats.
