Cirque du Soleil: VOLTA

Cirque du Soleil announces its 41st original production, a new touring show under the big top. M83 serves as composer and musical director for VOLTA. The show is written and directed by Bastien Alexandre and with Jean Guibert as the director of creation. International electronic group M83, previously announced as composer and musical director, brings his space-age future pop sound to the Cirque du Soleil stage for the first time ever. The name VOLTA refers to a sudden about-face, a change in emotion or idea often used in poetry. It also speaks to the jolt of energy delivered through the show.

Pink Martini

Pink Martini was formed in 1994 by aspiring Portland politician Thomas Lauderdale, who got the idea to provide more entertaining, uplifting music at political functions for causes such as civil rights, education, public broadcasting and more. A year later, Lauderdale called on former Harvard classmate China Forbes to join the band, and together they began writing songs together for the "little orchestra." Since then, the group has been known for drawing its inspiration from a myriad of sources, including romantic Hollywood musicals of the '40s and '50s, and a multilingual repertoire of diverse genres like jazz, Latin, lounge and classical, all shaken and stirred with cinematic influences, driving rhythms and exotic vocals. A typical Pink Martini concert spans the globe, from Cuban rumba and Parisian cafe tunes to Carnival disco.
