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.
