Cirque de la Symphonie

If the Minnesota Orchestra ran away and joined the circus, this is what it would look like.

On stage, our world-class musicians creating the perfect soundscape, while all around them (and flying over their heads!) the internationally acclaimed artists—aerialists, acrobats, contortionists, jugglers and strongmen of Cirque de la Symphonie— make the most astounding feats look easy. It’s a rare combination of every imaginable kind of artistry, executed at the highest level by the only cirque company that performs exclusively with symphony orchestras. The perfect show for the whole family—it’s the magic of the Big Top brought to the concert hall.

Please note: This event is recommended for ages 8 and over. All concerts are open to children ages 6 and over when accompanied by an adult.
