Cirque de la Symphonie with the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra: aerialists, jugglers and surprises on Sat, Oct 31, 7:30 pm, Riverview Theater
"Aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, balancers, and strongmen," says Cirque de la Symphonie, are what audiences can expect on Sat, Oct 31, in Cirque's performance with the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra. Indeed, "Each artist's performance is professionally choreographed to classical masterpieces and popular contemporary music in collaboration with the maestro."
Cirque performed to acclaim in Shreveport in 2009. The SSO audience seemed awed by the variety and high quality of the circus performers.
Making sure not to ignore that it is Halloween, the SSO says "Join us at 6:30 PM before the concert for some Halloween fun: face painting, Halloween-themed carnival games and treat bags for kids. We invite kids and adults alike to come in costume and join us for a costume parade."
Because you never know when parking on the riverfront is going to be a hassle, there's a free shuttle service which starts at 6:30 pm. The bus picks up at Regions Bank parking garage at the corner of Milam & Market Streets.
