...genuinely funny, amazingly executed, and worked into the dance to generate a constant undulating playfulness.
★★★★ The Wee Review

A great introduction to contemporary circus, and Mozart, for younger audiences.
★★★★  The List

Manic and magical in well-judged proportions, and (...) the music – obviously – is a delight.

[[New Circus///Neuer Zirkus]]

[[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 and discover his irrepressible spirit and vibrant compositions through physical comedy and mischievous antics.

Designed to amaze people from the age of three and upwards, Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus reinvents the composer’s magical music in a skilful and illuminating show featuring Circa’s dexterous daredevil artists and a live accordionist. Watch as the notes are physically lifted off the page as performers bring the renowned compositions to life amidst a storm of powder, tumbles and crashes, all under the eccentric swirl of the conductor’s baton.///Direkt von der Partitur auf die Bühne erscheint der als Mozart bekannte Mann bepudert, taumelnd und wirbelnd, der musikalisches Chaos und Bewegung in dieser Familienshow mit einer Zirkusdrehung verbindet.

Für diejenigen, die ihn kennen, ist er Wolfgang, der dartspielende, streitlustige Rattensack. Für diejenigen, die zuschauen und zuhören, ist er das Perückengenie Mozart. Voller körperlicher Komik und schelmischer Mätzchen bringt der magische Zauberzirkus von Wolfgang Menschen ab drei Jahren zum Staunen und erfindet die magische Musik des Komponisten in einer geschickten und aufschlussreichen Show mit Circas waghalsigen Künstlern und einem Live-Akkordeonisten neu.]]
