CIRQUE DE LA SYMPHONIE

2013-14 Season NJSO POPS

Dazzling. Thrilling. Death defying. Delicate. Awe inspiring. A troupe of exceptional artists—aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers and strongmen—joins your NJSO for what Review Vancouver has called “truly amazing choreography and acrobatic feats performed in perfect timing" to classical favorites such as Bizet’s Carmen, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony, Khachaturian’s Masquerade Suite, Kabalevsky’s The Comedians and John Williams’ score from Superman.
