N.C. Symphony: Cirque Musica Holiday Spectacular 

When: Fri., Dec. 18, 8 p.m. and Sat., Dec. 19, 3 & 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $30-$89



MEYMANDI CONCERT HALL—Synesthetes can already experience visual stimuli when hearing music; the rest of us have to rely on shows like the touring Cirque Musica's holiday team-up with the North Carolina Symphony to crosswire the senses. Death-defying European-style balancing routines, lariat work (to Aaron Copland's Rodeo, naturally), comedy from Punky the Bad Elf and other specialty acts unfold as the orchestra spins through Christmas carols both ancient and contemporary, classics from Pachelbel and Tchaikovsky and pop music, including the inevitable three-story aerial silk interpretation of—what else?—Frozen's "Let It Go." Maestro David Glover conducts.

8 p.m. Fri.–Sat.; 3 p.m. Sat., $30–$89, 2 E. South St., Raleigh, 919-733-2750, www.cirquemusica.com. Byron Woods
