Feature Act available for hire, based in Australia wide
This spectacular new concept combining live opera singers with circus artists has not been seen anywhere in the world before. This performance combines the magic of sensational Australian group Pot-Pourri with some of the best circus performers in Australia. Taking well-known works from operas, musicals and other classic songs and placing them amongst dynamic physical, character-based performance brings the music and the circus acts to audiences from a completely fresh and exciting perspective.
This extraordinary performance combines an innovative fusion of circus, opera, drama, beauty, comedy and magic including: lyrical, slow balancing routines to the Flower Duet from Lakme, an astounding aerial routine to The Queen of the Night aria from The Magic Flute, a comedy of acrobats and jugglers flying about to The Brindisi from La Traviata and exhilarating tumbling and acrobatics combined with The Ride of the Valkyries by Wagner. The show also covers highlights from Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Chicago and Cats and contemporary hits such as The Prayer and Time to Say Goodbye. The finale of Nessun Dorma from Turandot is not to be missed. All performers are involved in all aspects of the acts: for example an opera singer in the trapeze, or a singer being carried by acrobats, whilst singing. Overall, the incorporation of all artists in the scene is unique and spectacular.
Opera Circus features internationally acclaimed artists including high-flying physical performers, dynamic and daring acrobats and some of Australia’s most talented operatic singers. Together these dynamic young artists offer a show that is unlike any circus or opera that has been seen - a totally new option for arts and entertainment exclusive to MTA. Performances have been widely acclaimed for major festivals, conferences and events ranging from Melbourne Town Hall to an audience of over 10,000 people for the New Taipei City Festival in Taiwan.
This act showcases Australia’s diversity and sophistication and promises to leave the audience calling out for more!
NB. Customisation of lyrics, special requests and use of company props, banners etc are available on request and full briefing.
