Da Capo

Circus Ronaldo

‘Da Capo’ presents the story of a circus family: an imaginative, nearly filmic family chronicle of love, necessity, apparent coincidence and passion.

The audience follows the timeline of the Ronaldo family: starting with little Adolphe, who ran away from home to join the circus nearly 200 years ago, to the seventh generation of circus artists in the ring today, onwards to infinity. 'Da Capo' offers a universal story in its own unique way, recognisable to each of us, because everyone needs support and trust, connection and family.

The show passes by like a parade. A parade of time, fragments, memories and dreams, which suddenly come to a halt and then continue on their way. The parade moves on, to new generations, new chances and broken dreams, but always connected by a love for circus!
