The historic entertainment palace that is Detroit's Music Hall Center ushers in the acrobatic feats of Cirque Chinois, the National Circus of the People's Republic of China. Against rotating backdrops that flourish with brilliant hues, fire, and replicas of ancient buildings, performers front-flip through hoops and dangle, suspended, from ropes while donning elaborate costumes of feathers borrowed from the private collection of Big Bird. Visceral percussion and haunting vocals set the soundtrack to the event as the acrobats thrill onlookers with collective acts such as the Group Contortion and the Great Teeterboard.
Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts
Built in 1928, Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts dazzles patrons with an ornate art-deco façade and lush Spanish Renaissance interior. Elegant columns, glittering chandeliers, and vibrant geometric patterns create a palatial atmosphere in the lobby. The auditorium's intimately arranged velvet seats leave every viewer within 70 feet of the stage, eliminating the need for binoculars or drawn-out games of telephone describing the onstage action.
