It’s like two shows in one – classical masterpieces and jaw dropping circus event. The best of both worlds.
They may not have travelled by horse and wagon as traditionally circus performers did, but they have travelled far and wide to get here, arriving on the back of tremendous reviews. Praised for its ‘beauty and delicacy [and] incredible precision and timing’ (San Francisco Examiner), Cirque de la Symphonie fuses two art forms to create a vivid collaboration between artists at the top of their game.
Think acrobats, aerial flyers, contortionists and strongmen. Think dazzling displays of physical skill set to classical music masterpieces, performed by top class musicians. This is Cirque de la Symphonie, a unique concert event where the MSO is joined by a host of circus performers for two nights only in Melbourne.
