About

High-flying fantasy soars once again over the Concert Hall with Cirque de la Symphonie--back by popular demand with the NSO Pops in an all-new program! Acrobats, contortionists, jugglers, strongmen, and more perform astonishing feats uniquely choreographed to the music of Wagner, Saint-Saëns, Tchaikovsky, Bernstein, Rossini, Sibelius, and others. As aerialists take flight above the stage, the NSO Pops provide plenty of orchestral suspense, turning the concert into an entertainment extravaganza. Get ready to enjoy your favorite music--and some of the most nail-biting circus acts you've ever seen--in a thrilling spectacle the San Francisco Examiner calls "dazzling and elegant if not death-defying!"
