The Flying Steps to Bring RED BULL FLYING BACH to Civic Opera House for Exclusive U.S. Engagement, 6/20-29

The Flying Steps to Bring RED BULL FLYING BACH to Civic Opera House for Exclusive U.S. Engagement, 6/20-29For the first time in the United States after three seasons of sold out performances around the world, the celebrated and distinguished dance crew The Flying Steps will bring Red Bull Flying Bach to Chicago, making its debut in an exclusive U.S. engagement for six performances only downtown at the historic Civic Opera House, 20 N. Wacker Drive, June 20 - 29, 2014.

Bach and breakdance don't go well together? The four-time breakdance world champions The Flying Steps and opera director Christoph Hagel prove the contrary with their breathtaking performance, Red Bull Flying Bach. With their interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier, they shift and overcome the borders between classical and urban culture. By combining Bach's classical masterpiece with modern electronic beats and clever choreography, the audience of each performance truly experiences a powerhouse production invoking visual amusement with delightful sound.

Red Bull Flying Bach has sold out theaters around the world, such as Sweden, Australia, Germany, Iceland, Chile, Russia, Japan and Austria. The show itself is a beautiful blend of the minds of Artistic Directors Vartan Bassil (choreography) and Christoph Hagel (piano, musical director). The Civic Opera house, playing host to this one-of-a-kind performance, is eager to have the show debut on its famed stage later this year.

"We're really excited to host Flying Bach for their U.S. premiere this June," said Rich Regan, Director of Facilities at the Civic Opera House. "It's a groundbreaking blend of traditional and contemporary entertainment that will be completely new to Chicago audiences."
