NSO Pops: Cirque de la Symphonie / Michael Krajewski, conductor
Thursday, February 23, 2012 - Saturday, February 25, 2012
Conductor Michael Krajewski and the NSO Pops welcome Cirque de la Symphonie, a new production that brings "the Magic of Cirque to the Concert Hall!" The San Francisco Examiner calls the troupe, "dazzling and elegant if not death-defying!"
The high-flying fantasy of cirque soars over the Concert Hall as conductor Michael Krajewski and the NSO Pops welcome Cirque de la Symphonie. Music and magnificence combine in a performance that matches symphonic thrills from the likes of Khachaturian, Dvorák, and Tchaikovsky with heart-stopping circus acts by aerialists, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, and strongmen. Classical music gets the pizzazz it deserves in an act that the San Francisco Examiner calls "dazzling and elegant if not death-defying!"
