Circus Meets Symphony In Cirque Musica Production

FRISCO (CBS 11 NEWS)Cirque Musica is coming to Frisco and this show has a lot of local appeal.

Stephen Cook, executive producer of the show talked with CBS 11 about this unique show where symphony meets cirque.  “It’s a one of a kind show that takes this great music that people know like Tchaikovsky and Beethoven and have a full circus in front of it,” he said. “That’s sort of the magic that we have created with it.”

Forty members of the Dallas Pops Orchestra, as well as 10 members of the Cirque Orchestra, will provide the music.

Veronica Nan, a classical violinist won’t be in the orchestra, she’ll be hanging above it.  “Aside from the challenge from hanging in a chandelier you have to play one of the hardest violin pieces ever written, the Tchaikovsky violin concerto in front of an orchestra and have nothing under your feet,” she said.

Cirque Musica will perform two shows only on Saturday, June 22 at the Dr Pepper Arena.
