“Casanova Varieté" is a spectacular performance show with acrobatics, dance, play, contact juggling, live music, singing and masquerade. It is about Giacomo Casanova - world-famous Italian lover, author and adventurer of the 18th century. His autobiography, Histoire de ma vie (Story of My Life), is regarded as one of the most authentic sources of the customs and norms of European social life of this time. His adventurous and varied life led him through whole Europe. He associated with European royalty, popes and cardinals, along with luminaries such as Voltaire, Goethe and Mozart as well as with lower social classes. He has even become so famous for his often complicated and elaborate affairs with women so that his name “Casanova” is now synonymous with “womanizer”.

In so doing, specific extracts of his exciting life’s journey are presented within emotional dance scenes, breathtaking acrobatics and humorous plays.
