Fun, frightening and fabulous. The BSO's four-week mid-season music carnival opens by bringing the circus to town—performed under the Big Top by the Greatest Orchestra on Earth! This program of brilliant music and spectacular performance features Cirque de la Symphonie performers on and above the stage, presenting a feast for your eyes and ears. Marin Alsop leads a magnificent line-up of music from across the continents, from Poulenc's charming portrayal of Louis XIV to Aaron Copland's "ride tough, let's dance, and shoot-'em-up" depiction of Billy the Kid.
