French Baroque is a show that combines great performances and spectacular music. Using an all-French music program, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra joins with the contemporary circus performers of Circa for a combined production. Accompanied by French soprano Claire Lefilliatre, these powerhouse acts will take you on a beautiful and uplifting journey.

Created in 2004 under the direction of Yaron Lifschitz, Circa have toured in over 33 countries and have become widely known for their unique performances. Australian Brandenburg Orchestra are five time ARIA winners, who showcase great musical works from the 16th and 17th centuries. Since graduating from La Conservatoire de Caen in France, Claire Lefilliatre has become the principal interpreter of the productions of Le Poeme Harmonique.

The combination of this group of musicians and performers is sure to bring a delight to Australian audiences. Whilst widely popular in Europe, it is a rarity of this orchestral music and soprano performance to be seen in Sydney. Circa’s acrobatic contribution pushes French Baroque to an even greater level.
