The Circus Meets The Symphony, And It's Spectacular

Video by Tom Compagnoni

Following their debut with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra back in 2013, Cirque de la Symphonie will be reuniting with the the Orchestra this weekend to perform three shows filled with mind blowing music and death-defying cirque artistry in an awe inspiring coupling.

High-flying acrobats, jugglers, contortionists, dancers and strongmen will take to the Concert Hall at the Sydney Opera House to perform routines perfectly choreographed to classical masterpieces performed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

“It really is like circus ballet,” said Australian conductor Guy Noble. “Witnessing the sound of a full symphony orchestra paired with the amazing physicality of a troupe of world-class acrobats and circus performers is simply breathtaking.”

And breathtaking it is -- you’ll literally find yourself holding your breath while watching the extraordinary performances.

Bookings through Sydney Symphony Orchestra 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday on 8215 4600 or select your own seat.
