"Cirque de la Symphonie" - Classics Series, Concert 1

  • Saturday, September 17, 2016
  • 7:30 PM
  • Julie Rogers Theatre

Cirque de la Symphonie brings the magic of the well-known “Cirque” front and center to the Julie Rogers Theatre stage alongside your SOST orchestra for a thrilling evening. This concert will be an exciting adaptation of artistic performances widely seen in theaters and arenas everywhere. Artists include the most amazing veterans of exceptional cirque programs throughout the world — aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, balancers, and strongmen. Each artist’s performance is professionally choreographed to selections from great works such as Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake,” Bizet’s “Carmen Suite,” Brahms’ Symphony No. 3, Dvorak’s “Carnival Overture” and more. These classical masterpieces all transform into a new dimension as the aerialists fly overhead and acrobatic feats are performed.

This fusion of classical music and world-class performers results in a spectacularly entertaining event! The Grand Rapids Press described the performance as: “What Ravel and Tchaikovsky do for the ear, Cirque de la Symphonie does for the eye with lingering routines in the air and inexplicable feats of strength on the ground.” Reviewers continue to describe the acts as “breathtaking,” “mesmerizing,” and with “incredible precision and timing.”
