“Cirque de la Symphonie,” the traveling acrobatic troupe that teams up with orchestras across the country, is so popular in Fresno that it’s returning for a third time.
The Fresno Philharmonic concert features aerial flyers, acrobats, and strongmen performing their routines to great classical music played by the orchestra. The program includes works by Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Copland and Bernstein.
Maestro Theodore Kuchar will conduct, though there isn’t any word on if he’ll dangle upside down over his podium while conducting Bizet.
I have two very good pairs of tickets (Orchestra section, rows Q and S) to give away to Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. concert at the Saroyan Theatre.
To enter, leave a comment on this post answering this question: If you could have one Cirque “super talent” for a day, would you be 1) a strongman/woman contortionist; 2) a master juggler; or 3) an aerial fabric ballet wiz?
Deadline is 6 p.m. Wednesday. Please don’t enter more than once. I’ll be informing our winner by email on Wednesday evening, so keep a watch on your inbox. If I haven’t heard from a winner by Thursday morning, I reserve the right to pick another. (I want to make sure these tickets go to good use.) These are paper tickets, so you’ll need to be able to come down to The Bee’s front counter by 5 p.m. Friday to pick them up. Rules are on the jump.
