Take a Surreal Journey with Opera Parallèle as Kurt Weill's Mahagonny-Songspiel collides with Francis Poulenc's Les mamelles de Tirésias for an original post-apocalyptic steampunk opera. In search of water and an elusive paradise across a desert wasteland, a theater troupe sings the jazz-infused melodies of Weill's short opera, co-written with Bertolt Brecht in 1927. Along the way, they come upon an audience for their performance of Poulenc's outrageously surreal satire about a man who gives birth to 40,000 babies in a single day. Surreal Journey fuses these two landmark works and brings them into the 21st century. Learn More

The performances were great! And my daughters and I loved the theme, it was something they could relate to. The costumes were magnificant and the music tastefully done. We would like to know where they will be performing around the Bay Area as we would like to tell our friends.

“His Velocity Circus is so named for good reason - its founder is a whirling dervish on and offstage." —San Francisco Chronicle
“Mesmerizing!” —Alexandra Hamilton, Bay Area Discovery Museum

“What makes [the] performances so special is that they remind us of the fact that there is magic in the world and ‘things’ more important than what we can see and touch. [They] really hit ‘IT’ every time…‘IT’ is what happens when the artistry reaches the audience and transports them to another time and place…mesmerizing.” —Alexandra Hamilton, Bay Area Discovery Museum
