(Acclaimed aerial artist Alexander Streltsov performs “Aerial-Silks”)

An exciting production awaits Johannesburg audiences with Cirque de la Symphonie.

Back by popular demand since its sold-out performances in the Artscape Theatre complex last year, this exciting production brings the magic of cirque to the music hall. It is an thrilling adaptation of artistic performances widely seen in theatres and arenas everywhere. Artists include the most amazing veterans of exceptional cirque programmes throughout the world – aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, balancers, and strongmen.

Each artist’s performance is professionally choreographed to classical masterpieces and popular contemporary music in collaboration with maestro Theodore Kuchar and the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra.

The programme will include favourites from Bizet’s Carmen, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty as well as works by Dvorak, Bernstein and Shostakovich.

The performance follows the highly successful appearance of this production in Durban and Cape Town.

Cirque de la Symphonie takes place at The Mandela, Joburg Theatre on June 27 and 28 at 20h00 with a matinee at 15h00 on June 28.
