Chicago Philharmonic Presents Incredible Cirque Acts With Live Music
This Memorial Day weekend, Chicago Philharmonic partners with the athletes, actors, and acrobats of Cirque de la Symphonie for the second time by popular demand. This extraordinary spectacle combines awe-inspiring cirque acts onstage with the virtuoso Chicago Phil musicians performing classic movie music from Superman, Star Wars, Chicago, Harry Potter, and more.
These two powerhouse performing arts groups last joined forces in 2016 in a sold-out performance, impressing critics and astounding audiences of all ages.
Cirque de la Symphonie's cast of Olympians and world record-holders includes clowns, acrobats, strongmen, jugglers, and aerialists. The troupe performs exclusively with orchestras and has garnered acclaim at venues such as the Kennedy Center and the Sydney Opera House.
Performers include seven-time consecutive acrobatic gymnastics National Champion and Olympic athlete Christine Van Loo, hula hoops and third-generation circus extraordinaire Alina Sergeeva, hilarious mime and juggler Vladimir Tsarkov, and many more.
