A Co-production of L’Aubergine and Les P’tits Mélomanes du Dimanche
A flea circus comes to the orchestra!
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the Direttore Maestro and his assistant Presto invite you to the exquisite performance of Circus Opus. Come give a hand for our artists extraordinaire : Barbara the Bearded Flea, Giulietta the Prima Donna and let’s not forget the incredible Swiffer Sisters! Both curious and mischievous, the fleas are setting off on an adventure to discover the fascinating world of instruments and their different sounds. Maestro and Presto will go to great lengths to regain control of their little creatures... Let the show begin!
