Showcasing a stunning fusion of circus acrobatics and orchestral favorites, Cirque de la Symphonie and the Pacific Symphony join forces for the third time to bring the magic of music and movement together in the center ring. This unique cirque event pairs aerial fliers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers and strongman acts with classical and contemporary pieces to wow audiences of all ages. Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman and the orchestra provide the live score with favorites like John Williams' "Flight to Neverland" from the movie Hook, Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake waltz, and works from classical and contemporary composers like Leonard Bernstein, Camille Saint-Saëns and more, creating a visual and aural experience like no other.
