Cirque de la Symphonie is a unique and exciting production designed to bring the magic of cirque to the music hall. An elegant fusion of cirque and orchestra, the program showcases many of the best cirque artists in the world, thrilling the audience with aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, balancers, and strongmen. These accomplished veterans include world record holders, gold-medal winners, Olympians, and some of the most original talent ever seen.

A founder, Alexander Streltsov, created the concept of cirque paired with symphony in 1998 in a special PBS production with the Cincinnati Pops. Streltsov, a circus veteran from Moscow, is the only aerialist to perform with the Bolshoi Ballet. After winning the gold medal at the prestigious Festival du Mondial in Paris, he starred in a Broadway production. His music and programming sensibilities combined with performance background to provide a program with stunning three dimensional visual and musical elements. Classical masterpieces are perfectly choreographed to the elegant movements of cirque artists, elevating cirque artistry to a fine arts level.
