This week contemporary circus group Circa teams with the Debussy String Quartet at London's Barbican to present the UK premiere of Opus. Directed by Yaron Lifschitz, the production has at its core three of Shostakovich’s string quartets, performed live by the Debussy Quartet, as 14 acrobats tumble and spin around the stage. The production runs until Saturday 22 February 2014.
