Quotes & Highlights

“Fluid, sensual, stylish – sublime.”* *—The Times (London)


Step into a surreal theatrical world, where disbelief is suspended and nothing is what it seems. A smash hit in London and at the Spoleto Festival, _Aurelia’s Oratorio _is a magical whirl of visual illusions and trickery. Inspired by the magic of the music hall, variety and circus, this show stars Aurélia Thierrée, Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, and is created and directed by her mother Victoria Chaplin Thierrée (creator of Cirque Invisible). Actress, illusionist, and dancer, Aurélia takes us into an unforgettable realm of fun and fantasy, in a whimsical and yet sophisticated evening of theatre.
