The uniquely talented performers of Cirque Mechanics will take over the Music Hall stage on Friday and Saturday, March 27-28 at 8 pm and Sunday, March 29 at 2 pm to join the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra under the direction of Pops Conductor John Morris Russell for an unforgettable evening of artistic and modern circus feats. Aerialists and acrobats will perform amidst the mechanical wonders that the company has become known for, including the 18-foot-tall Gantry Crane created for this show, bringing classical works including Berlioz’s Roman Carnival, Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings, and original music from circus composer Michael Picton, to spectacular life.
Each performance will feature additional family-friendly circus acts before each concert, including a fire performer and living statue on Friday, a stilt juggler and fire performer on Saturday, and a juggler and magician in the Music Hall lobby on Sunday.
Kids’ tickets are $10 for all performances, and adult tickets for this concert start at $25 and can be purchased via the Pops Box office by calling (513) 381-3300 or visiting www.cincinnatipops.org.
