Cirque de la Symphonie will perform along with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops on Aug. 21 to start the final week of the 2015 Tanglewood season. The Cirque de la Symphonie, made up of aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dances, jugglers, balancers, and strongmen, will synchronize the elegant and daring cirque acts of former Olympians and world record-holders with Boston Pops renditions of classical music masterpieces, including Tchaikovsky’s famous waltz from Swan Lake, Saint-Saëns’ Dance Macabre, and a romantic medley called Gershwin in Love.
