This truly spectacular show not only features amazing feats of strength, agility and flexibility from the skilled performers of this world-famous Chinese troupe -- but you may be more than pleasantly surprised by the company's display of sly humor, dazzling color and great live music. Drawing on more than 2,000 years of tradition and 50 years of performing, the Peking Acrobats create a true cirque-style carnival of dance, gymnastics, contortion, balancing, juggling and cycling that's gained them worldwide fame -- including an appearance in the hit movie Ocean's 11.

One of Russia’s musical treasures, the St. Petersburg Symphony was founded in the late 1960s with the intention of performing seldom-played opuses of different musical styles from all over the world. For nearly 20 years it did just that, and was known as the Orchestra of Ancient and Modern Music. By 1988, the Symphony’s repertoire expanded greatly and is now considered limitless as they perform music of every era, genre and style. Led by Principal Guest Conductor Vladimir Lande, the St. Petersburg Symphony’s Houston debut program will feature Weinberg's Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes and piano soloist Xiayin Wang performing Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No.3.
