Sarasota News Leader March 8, 2013 Page 98 CIRCUS SARASOTA TO PRESENT FOUR CIRQUE DES VOIX SHOWS Cirque des Voix, the upcoming collaboration among Key Chorale, Sarasota Young Voices and Circus Sarasota, "is intended to blend and contrast the sublime beauty of the human voice with the graceful strength of the human body," Circus Sarasota has announced. Among the movie themes incorporated into the show will be Ennio Morricone's Gabriel's Oboe, which will accompany the aerial performance of Sarasota's own Dolly Jacobs, the release continues. With four performances only from March 8 through March 10, "Cirque des Voix will take audiences on a journey which celebrates the musical arts and circus arts together," a news release says. "The show blends the grace and thrills of the world's greatest circus performers with stunning choral music" from composers such as John Williams, Danny Elfman, Paul Schwartz, Beethoven, Orff and Jenkins, "all in the unique setting of the Sailor Circus arena," the release adds. Tino Wallenda and The Flying Wallendas "will defy gravity and belief" while the orchestra performs John Williams' The Lost World and Hans Zimmer's Gladiator, for another example of the blending of music and acts, the release adds. For details about the performances, including ticket information, visit www.CircusSarasota. org or call 355-9805. The Flying Wallendas perform during a 2012 production of Cirque des Voix.
