KAMLOOPS – Kamloops Symphony’s final performance of the season is an exciting adaptation that brings the magic of the circus to the music hall on Friday, May 8, and Saturday, May 9, at Sagebrush Theatre, 7:30 p.m.

Cirque de la Symphonie is a traveling circus group that pairs circus acts and orchestral music together. The act started in 2006 and has amazed audiences all over North America. The circus acts are professionally choreographed to classical masterpieces and popular contemporary music.
The performance includes aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, balancers and strongmen. The circus acts work in collaboration with the conductor.

These accomplished performers include world record holders, gold-medal winners of international competitions, Olympians and some of the most original talent ever seen. Cirque de la Symphonie is the only cirque company worldwide that performs exclusively with orchestras.

The programme includes a wide variety of well known music, such as excerpts from Bizet’s Carmen and Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake, as well as music from the movies Hook and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

The DC Metro Theatre Arts reviewed Cirque de la Symphonie as “…an evening that should appeal to everyone- young and old, fans of classical music, and otherwise.”

Cirque de la Symphonie has performed to sold-out venues around the world, bringing a new energy to the concert experience. Kamloops Symphony expects the audience to react to the jaw-dropping circus acts with gasps and applause throughout the performance.

Tickets are available through Kamloops Live! Box Office at 250-374-5483, at 1025 Lorne St., or www.kamloopslive.ca. More information can be found at www.kamloopssymphony.com.
