Spectacular circus to spectacular music
Cirque Musica present this thrilling show of incredible cirque performers set to George Gershwin's boiling pot of jazz, classical, and Broadway; Rhapsody in Blue. Brace yourself for a multiple chills and thrills spectacular as gravity-defying acrobats and aerialists quite literally take flight, performing stunts, tricks and illusions in step with the legendary American composer's iconic musical work, as well as others from his celebrated catalog including Concerto In F and Someone Loves Me. Feast your eyes on a multi-sensory display of expert juggling, balance, trapeze, contortion and even lassoing, all set to a whirlwind musical arrangement that'll keep the goose-bumps coming thick and fast!
Premiering in 1924, Rhapsody captures the imagination from the sultry opening notes to its cymbal-laden climax, painting a picture of New York City. Described by Gershwin as "a sort of musical kaleidoscope of America, of our vast melting pot, of our unduplicated national pep, of our metropolitan madness." it had sold a million copies by 1927 and cemented it as an audience favorite, a legacy that lasts to this day.
