For two performances, Glenn Langdon conducts the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in the Cirque de la Symphonie. The production has been touring the world, bringing the juggling, acrobatics, aerial flight, etc. of circus acts to the world of musical concert halls. Each act has professional choreography coordinated to everything from classical pieces to contemporary pop.

Langdon has an eclectic repertoire on his resume. He's directed performances of Rite of Spring, and worked alongside jazz legend Kermit Ruffins. As part of his experience touring Broadway, Langdon worked as Music Director for the Phantom of the Opera tour across the U.S. and Canada, visiting over 60 cities in 14 years—roughly 5,000 performances.

Langdon's passion is to make music and the arts accessible to everyone. Since joining the Texas Opera Theatre Residency Company as Music Director, he has developed a deep interest in showcasing music in non-traditional venues. Performances throughout Texas include locations like high schools, senior centers, and even beer halls.

The event starts Saturday, January 18 at 7:30p. Seats for that performance, however, are limited. The following afternoon, however, still has a number of available spots. The Sunday, January 19 curtain rises at 2:30p. Ticket prices range from $20-on, though LPO's website mentions a student rate of $10-on—school ID may be required.
