‘CIRQUE DE LA SYMPHONIE'
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $17-$66.

For all the symphony lovers out there with friends who can't quite grasp the magic of a live orchestra, here's their chance to win them over. “Cirque de la Symphonie” pairs the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra with veterans of Cirque du Soleil's acrobats, jugglers, magicians and strong men. The Cirque's moves are choreographed in coordination with the ASO, so everything should swing along nicely. Pay special attention to the strength duo Jarek and Darek, from Warsaw. They're world champion hand balancers, which means they'll do stuff like handstands with their pinkies, or headstands on the other's head. The ASO and the Cirque troupe reprise the show on Saturday at the same time.
