Michael Butterman, Music Director

The magic of the circus returns with fresh, new acts by aerial fliers, strongmen, acrobats, jugglers and contortionists sharing the stage with the Boulder Phil. This was an extremely popular, sold-out event when Cirque de la Symphonie last appeared with the Boulder Phil. Adults and children alike greatly enjoy this visual entertainment extravaganza featuring high-energy classical music.

“A unique human achievement, a synthesis of art and athleticism”

“World-class performers achieved the seemingly impossible”

“Jaw-dropping...a well-deserved standing ovation”

Cirque“A breath-taking display of agility and incomparable beauty”

Concert run-time is approx. 2 hours, including one intermission.

Music Director Michael Butterman will give a preview of the Boulder Phil's 2016-17 season at 6:30 PM, before the evening concert.
