In Cirque Dreams Holidaze, Broadway director Neil Goldberg re-imagines the holiday season with more than 300 costumes, 20 acts and 30 performers from 12 countries showcasing an endless variety of imaginative, heart-pounding and gravity-defying feats you have to see to believe.
Experience gingerbread men flipping midair, toy soldiers marching on thin wires along with snowmen, icemen and penguins, balancing, jumping and spinning in disbelief. The show celebrates the most wonderful time of the year with singers, choreography and exciting production numbers. Performers twirl, bounce and soar thru the air to original music and seasonal favorites brought to life within a stage setting of gigantic gifts, colossal candy canes and 30-foot towering trees and soldiers creating a wonderland of amazement.
Indigo Girls with Symphony
Friday, Feb. 27, 2015 at 8 p.m.

With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, have forged their own way in the music business.

The Indigo Girls first performed with an orchestra back in 2001, doing a series of shows with the Atlanta Ballet. Ray says “Ever since then I have pondered how cool it would be to have a set of musical scores to bring to orchestras around the country and play in a completely different setting.”
