Sarabande: Bach’s Cello Suites Meet Circus on Stage

Why We Recommend it

Renowned cellist Noémi Boutin and celebrated circus artist Jörg Müller join forces for a curious interpretation of three of Johann Sebastian Bach’s suites for cello.


Classical music and theatre, dance and contemporary art intertwine in this triptych put on by Alliance Francaise de Hong Kong, as a part of Le French May.

Tightrope walker and dancer Jörg Müller will perform three living pictures set to, and inspired by, Bach’s elegant suites no. 1, 3, and 5 for cello, played by Noémi Boutin. The show features a mesmerising candle balancing act, as well as a dance with a flying merry-go-round and an act during which Boutin is suspended in the air.
