Le Poème Harmonique


Circus art, music and dance of the 17th century
From Il Fàsolo to Monteverdi


This baroque carnival takes place in all its splendour in the sumptuous and grotesque world of mid-seventeenth-century Italy. A poetic gathering of acrobats, jugglers, mime artists, singers and musicians offers a genre-defying show at the interface of several artistic disciplines, featuring popular music, baroque choral singing and commedia dell’arte. An invitation to young and old alike to be transported to another world.
