Live from the A-Team: Spellbinding Treat for Ears and Eyes


As yesterday we heard all about Cirque de la Symphonie, today we’re back with the other half of the dynamic reviewing duo, Ronda Dale-Kirk, who often-times gives us an exciting contrast–almost a doctoral second opinion–on shows. Here’s what she had to say about Cirque de la Symphonie:


“If you missed this Austin Pops concert, please find another opportunity to see this outstanding blend of aural and visual beauty. Seven incredibly athletic and graceful Cirque artists performed magical feats choreographed to select pieces of classical music and movie themes. The program included “Les Toreadors” from “Carmen,” John Williams pieces from “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and from “Star Wars: Episode II…,” and other majestic stirring compositions. 

When the applause died down after the first aerial artist’s magnificent performance, the almost sold-out audience was quietly awed with anticipation. A patron behind me said, “I’m starting my diet tomorrow.” Each performance was spectacular and layered by admiring applause throughout. “How can they top themselves?” I kept asking myself. Then came the final act, two Polish athletes, former national hand-balancing champions. Their toned bodies, painted a soft gold from baldpate to muscled toe, they were like sculptured Adonises, slowly coming to life, moving from one unbelievable pose to the next.

The next ASO Pops concert is: “Classical Mystery Tour: A Tribute to the Beatles.” Better buy tickets now or miss out on another stunning evening.”
