Creative City Project bringing The Carnival – Where Orchestra Meets Circus to downtown Church Street

Roll up for a spectacular show this weekend!

Get ready to immerse yourself in the magic of the circus, as the Carnival comes to Orlando at the uniquely beautiful Cheyenne Saloon in downtown Orlando.

 Orlando Philharmonic , Creative City Project  “The Carnival”

This theatrical journey transports you to an imaginative world from Director, Aradhana Tiwari; Choreographer, Holly Harris; Music Director, Eric Jacobsen; Composer, Julian Bond; and Creative Director, Cole NeSmith.

Actors, dancers, circus performers, musicians, costumes and large puppetry bring the world of the circus to life like never before. It’s an artful night out of music and mystery as the Ringmaster introduces you to the menagerie of Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Le Carnaval des Animaux.” It’s a journey into self-discovery and the complexity of what it means to be alive. With the original piece as the backbone, talented Composer, Julian Bond has expanded the original 23 minute score. A cast of professional dancers reveals what’s hidden beneath our own animalistic instincts. And circus performers awaken our sense of vitality and wonder through jaw-dropping acts.
