Il Ritorno By Circa

Il Ritorno is a ground-breaking new work fusing Circa’s world-renowned stripped-back acrobatics with baroque opera. Over 80 taut minutes, it retells Claudio Monteverdi’s Il Ritorno D’Ulisse in Patria, intermingling it with folk song and new compositions.

The stage is awash with bodies tumbling, lifting and clutching. Then, out of the darkness and gnawed by nostalgia, the Greek hero Ulysses appears after twenty long years of war and wanderings. Will he reach his faithful wife Penelope before she succumbs to her suitors?

At the core of Il Ritorno is the hunger to return home. Saturated with loss and war, powered by longing and haunted by the past. Il Ritorno is created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz in collaboration with composer and arranger Quincy Grant. It is performed by an outstanding cast of singers and accompanists.

Circa is at the frontier of new circus, creating powerful works of circus art that challenge, thrill and delight. At the centre of Circa is the art. Shows that push the boundary of the circus artform, blur the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus, and yet are a unique, singular, 'Circa' experience.

Since 2006, Circa has toured to 33 countries across six continents. Circa’s work has been rapturously received by audiences, presenters and critics around the world.

'Il Ritorno offers a powerful vision of humanity and compassion… a luminous new work'
