Cirque de la Symphonie

Cirque de la Symphonie delighted the full house last Saturday at the Majestic Theatre. The people around me continually gasped in amazement at the feats of strength and agility displayed by the seven Cirque performers.  

The San Antonio Symphony performed classical and pop numbers that synced perfectly with the acrobatic performances.  Selections included “Harry’s Wondrous  World” from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone which was paired with Shana Lord performing acrobatics on a long scarf that was connected to the top of the stage.

The comedian in the Cirque group, Vladimir Tsarkov (Red Harlequin),  performed several times — juggling, miming and performing a magic trick on Conducter Ken-David Masur.  Conductor Masur was also very funny and worked well with the Cirque performers. 

A highlight of the show was Alexander Streltsov, an aerialist, flying over the symphony’s heads as they played Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries.”  The show closed with two Polish strongmen, Jarek and Darek, performing to Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D minor.”  The two men are former Polish national hand-balancing champions and their performance was an amazing show of strength and agility.
