Happy Holidays! with Cirque de la Symphonie
Steven Reineke, conductor
Following its sold-out engagement last fall, Cirque de la Symphonie returns to the ConcertHall to spread holiday cheer to all who are near! With magic acts, acrobats, and everything in between, this nail-biting circus spectacle brings nonstop thrills to a festive NSO Pops program of seasonal favorites, including several fresh arrangements plus a live choir. Enjoy selections from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker and Duke Ellington's The Nutcracker Suite along with "Ave Maria,""Sleigh Ride," "Deck the Halls," music by John Williams, and much more. Get ready for a holly jolly holiday--and some of the most unbelievable acts you've ever seen--in a whimsical winter extravaganza the San Francisco Examiner calls "dazzling and elegant if not death-defying!"
Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours with one 15-minute intermission.
