Red Bull Flying Bach Tour Includes San Antonio January 18, 2017
The Red Bull Flying Bach 2016‐2017 USA tour has announced the dates for its full USA tour, including a performance at San Antonio’s Aztec Theatre on January 18, 2017. After debuting to rave reviews in San Francisco at the iconic Masonic Theatre, the performance’s unique fusion of classical music and professional break dancing garnered national recognition and captured the attention of fans from across the country. Tickets for the San Antonio show are available for purchase at redbullflyingbach.com.
From the brilliant minds of Artistic Directors Vartan Bassil and Christoph Hagel, attendees will experience break dancing accompanied by an adaptation of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “The Well-Tempered Clavier.” This unique combination of music and visuals demonstrates that the electrifying performance is a genius blend of high society and urban culture. Tickets to the nationwide phenomenon are expected to sell out quickly.
“The Red Bull Flying Bach national tour is an opportunity for The Flying Steps to demonstrate that our members are not just break dancers – we are artists,” said Bassil. “The product of combining urban culture with classical influences is an incredible type of street art that we are excited to share with the USA.”
After the 2010 premiere in Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie and following the sold out German tour, Red Bull Flying Bach brought their success to the rest of the world. More than 400,000 spectators in 31 different countries have experienced Swedish ballerina Anna Holmström and the Flying Steps in a spectacular performance that is equal parts urban culture, ballet, and theater.
