World-class performers will astound audience members with their flawless execution of astonishing acrobatics, pushing the boundaries of imaginative athleticism. Aerial flyers, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, balancers, and strongmen add a stunning visual enhancement to the sounds of popular contemporary music and classical masterpieces, performed by the ESO and led by Music Director William Eddins.

It will be a stimulating experience for the eyes and ears. Dont miss this incredibly unique synergy of orchestral music and the spectacle of Cirque.
