For over 250 years, Handel's Messiah has stood as one of the most beloved works in classical music history. This year, the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra honors the joyous holiday season with a performance of this monumental celebration of faith and the human experience. The orchestra will be conducted by Nicholas McGegan, who has beautifully interpreted Handel's Messiah for over 20 years. They'll be joined onstage by the Philharmonia Chorale and distinguished guest soloists, who color Handel's various movements with rich tones and passionate intensity. Experience the true meaning of the season at this uplifting concert as you thrill to the blazing trumpets, thundering timpani and a chorus of heavenly voices. Learn More

After reading the handful of reviews posted about this event, and having attended many other circus/acrobatic events in the past beyond just Cirque, I thought I was in for a treat. It was my wife's birthday and this was the main stage event.
As soon as we arrived to our seats, which were great, I began to wonder about my choice. The acrobatics were OK, as was the other stunts, but it felt like they could have benefited from lots more rehearsals. Then there were the fart jokes, and the mechanical dog showing off his balls. That was more than I had expected and it seemed really out of place. I like a dick joke as much as the next person, but I was not going to stand-up comedy, much less mechanical dog comedy.
Overall, it seemed like they did not have as many tricks up their sleeve as we might hope, and so we were disappointed and scooted out at intermission.
I will say this though, the guy who played the main MC was fantastic. He was funny, was an amazing juggler and kept us interested. Would I go again, definitely not. Have I sworn off circus performances, absolutely not, just won't be telling anyone about this. Mostly, I am surprised that Zellerbach would have such a show of less than shimmering accolade.

This event was VERY cool. Some amazingly talented people. Really loved it and even a seat in the balcony was good. It had humor, style, and adventure. That mechanical talking dog was a hoot too. I had a really great time watching this show.
