Cirque de la Symphonie @ SPAC in 2010

What happens when you combine a symphony orchestra with a circus?

Lots of fun and daring-do, both musically and athletically, that’s what…

Cirque de la Symphonie wowed the crowds in Saratoga Springs when they joined the Philadelphia Orchestra on stage for wild ‘n’ woolly performances in each of the past two summer seasons. (Read our review – and see the stunning photos.)

Well, they’re doing it again at 8pm on Friday evening (August 3) for one night only at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center with Stéphane Denève conducting, and you won’t want to miss it.

In addition to the dazzling musical and circus performances, Friday night is also Family Night, and from 6-8pm, SPAC will be offering a free pre-show celebration featuring strolling magicians, free Stewarts ice cream, free balloon animals, chalk contests, family games and more.

We’ve got a pair of FREE LAWN TICKETS to give away to Friday night’s performance to a lucky Nippertown reader! To enter the contest, just post a comment below. Please leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. The winners will be selected at random and notified on Friday morning. Good luck! Congratulations to the winner, who has been notified by email.

Cirque de la Symphonie @ SPAC

What do you get when you combine one of the best classical music orchestras around with the Cirque de la Symphonie performing overhead?

Magic!

We’re talking high-wire stuff with no safety net in sight. One wrong move, and a Stradivarius or two might end up in the garbage heap.
