19th February 2019

Review - Tutti - The Age

12th September 2018

It's a highwire act when the circus and orchestra join forces in Tutti TuttiMSO and Circus OzHamer Hall7-8 September ★★★½REVIEWER: Cameron Woodhead Classical musicians and acrobats are intriguing bedfellows, and you could argue the synergy between them has been at the forefront of contemporary circus over the past decade.
