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

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.
