Circa; Il Ritorno

February 3, 2018

Cal Performances

Performance Dates: Saturday, February 3, 8pm Sunday, February 4, 3pm Created by Yaron Lifschitz with Quincy Grant and the Circa Ensemble Juxtaposing circus arts with the glorious music of Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria, Monteverdi's 17th-century opera about Ulysses' homecoming, the Australian troupe Circa tells a timeless story of loss and displacement in its latest production, Il Ritorno. Six masterful acrobats join four chamber musicians and two singers in a stark staging that powerfully unites music with movement. "The piece reverberates with real emotional pungency, as if the essence of homesickness has been bottled. I've seen grief many times on stage, but seldom have I seen it depicted so well" (The Guardian, London). #BerkeleyRADICAL #BlurringBoundaries
