Absolutely fantastic! One of my favorite shows I've seen at the Kennedy Center. I hope they make this an annual tradition. Appropriate for all ages. We were still talking about it hours later.

Great seat, great event that was popular with all age groups. Would definitely consider going again when Cirque de la Symphonia plays with NSO. Really good event for youngsters.

This is a magical show with top rate performers who literally fly over the orchestra. It is an intimate circus with a gorgeous score played by the NSO.

Phenomenal cirque performers. The National Symphony Orchestra was incredible. We had front row seats at the Kennedy Center and an amazing time. Highly recommend seeing this show - you won't be disappointed!

One of the most mind-boggling performances I've ever seen. And while these incredible acrobats are performing amazing feats, you have the fantastic NSO performing. A must-see show.

Very enjoyable evening. Except for the seats located against the wall in the orchestra. It is not easy for a senior to cross so many people, plus two very tall people were in front of us.
But the show was definitely worth the evening.

a great show! Good seat to see everything, but the seat was off to one side making it difficult to get out as there is no aisle on side.

Watching these amazing athletes with the accompaniment of the NSO in the comfort of the Kennedy center concert hall was a very enjoyable experience. Normally seeing these stunning acts would include the smell of sawdust and cotton candy. The only...continued

We had wonderful 3rd row seats. However, because of some of the acrobatics we were unable to see what was happening lower on the stage. There was a 12" bar across the stage, presumably for safety issues for the equipment being used, but it did...continued
