It was the most beautiful surrealistic and poetic performance I have seen in a long time. A theater as it would have been done by Rene Magritte. Aurelia is a female mix of her great hrandfather and Baster Keaton. Imaginative. Tender. Simply great!

Quotes & Highlights

“An absolute spellbinder . . .an enchanting dream, and like most vivid reveries, it momentarily colors the way you see the waking world.” —London Daily Telegraph
“Charm is a much-abused word but Aurélia’s Oratorio has it in spades… an upsidedown, topsy-turvy world that Aurélia opens up, a world where the magic is all in the detail.” —Metro London
“A show of wit and beauty, with haunting stage images.”  —Variety


Aurélia Thierrée was first seen on the A.R.T. stage as a young girl, performing in the Cirque Imaginaire with her parents.  Now an actress and acrobat in her own right, Aurélia has charmed audiences around the world with this dazzling display of stage illusion, inspired by the magic of music hall and circus, and co-created with her mother Victoria Thierrée Chaplin.
