This Friday, August 13, SPAC is hosting Cirque de la Symphonie, a travelling acrobatic troupe of aerialists, contortionists, jugglers, dancers, balancers and strongmen, will take over the amphitheater and offer up exquisite feats of skill and daring.
The troupe will accompany a wide selection of classical works performed by The Philadelphia Orchestra including Dvořak’s Carnival Overture, Saint-Saëns’ Bacchanale from Samson et Delilah, Sibelius’ Finlandia and selections from Bizet’s Carmen Suites Nos.1 and 2.
The evening begins at 6 p.m. with CDPHP Family Night activities including free Stewart’s ice cream, balloon sculpture, strolling magicians, chalk contests, and more. At 7 p.m., SPAC will present its popular interactive arts education series for kids, the Children’s Workshops on the Lawn.
