Cirque Goes to the Movies

About This Concert:

Hear the Orchestra perform film score selections from Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Titanic and more while (all around them and flying over head!) the internationally-acclaimed aerialists, acrobats and jugglers make the most astounding feats look easy.

Fun Facts:

  • Each of the acts performed by the acrobats, jugglers, contortionists, strongmen, ribbon dancers and aerialists are choreographed to movie scores that are performed live by the Minnesota Orchestra!
  • You'll also hear music from Back to the Future, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Chariots of Fire, Mission: Impossible and Rocky!
  • From the sidewalk to the stage—Cirque began in 1984 as a group of 20 Québec street performers who went on to perform in theaters and arenas, winning millions of fans.
  • Praising its magical combination of symphonic music and precision acrobatics, The Seattle Post Intelligencer called it “a show unlike any other…astonishing.”

Please note: film clips will not be projected in this program.
