Two great artforms, both requiring agility, creativity, and a lifetime of practice, come together in this thrilling evening featuring Cirque de la Symphonie. Breathtaking acrobatics fly above the Orchestra, accompanied by stunning symphonic repertoire including Sibelius’s soaring Finlandia, Wagner’s “The Ride of the Valkyries,” Chabrier’s España, and selections from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake plus many new orchestral showpieces you will surely love. The program features aerialists, contortionists, dancers, strongmen, and special surprises. The high-wire acts of stunning virtuosity on the stage and up in the air will be like nothing you’ve seen before in Verizon Hall. With only two shows, these are sure to be sell-outs.
