Happy Holidays! with Cirque de la Symphonie
Steven Reineke, conductor
High-flying fantasy soars once again with Cirque de la Symphonie--back by popular demand for a special holiday program, following its nearly sold-out 2013 engagement! Acrobats, contortionists, jugglers, strongmen, and other new and returning acts perform astonishing feats uniquely choreographed to classical masterpieces. As aerialists take flight above the stage of our festively decorated Concert Hall, 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 dazzling spectacle the Seattle Times calls "a fantastic holiday show… the look on kids' faces in the crowd doesn't lie!"

Performance Timing: Part One - 45 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 45 min.
