Orchestra Wellington Presents Family Show For All Ages With Circus Hub Talent

See death-defying aerial performers, sensational stilt dancers, jugglers, tumblers and clowns when Orchestra Wellington combines with the Circus Hub for a spectacular family show.

“We combine some of New Zealand’s finest circus performers in a show that will appeal to all ages,” says Music Director Marc Taddei.

“You’ll be astounded by the acrobatics and laugh at the clowns as they perform to exhilarating music! It’s a great way to entertain your kids while introducing them to the magic of the orchestra.”

The Orchestra will play music to stir the imagination including favourites from Bizet’s Carmen, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet and Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals.

The circus performers will be choreographed by Circus Hub’s Head trainer, Rosalie Ducharme. Rosalie is a graduate of Montreal’s National Circus School. With a strong background in rhythmic gymnastics and contemporary dance, she co-created and performed a duo trapeze act in Cirque du Soleil’s Totem that was acclaimed for its innovative style “filled with surprising transitions, flowing
choreography and acting”.

Founded in 2005, the Wellington Circus Hub has become a vibrant part of Wellington’s cultural life. Its high flyers, aerialists, tumblers and rich, often satirical, entertainment offer something for both young and old.
