Masks, music, and high-flying aerialists join in a fantasy of familiar stories, slapstick humor and gorgeous voices as professional circus artists join forces with Opera North under the big top at Blow-Me-Down Farm. Daring arias and acrobats evoking carnival in Venice make this always surprising summer event the signature of Opera North. A perfect family summer experience.
