Phantoms of the Orchestra - Des Moines Symphony/Des Moines Performing Arts

Phantoms of the Orchestra

With the Des Moines Symphony and Magic Circle Mime Company

Every Halloween the "phantoms of the orchestra" return to haunt the concert hall. The maestro and his terrified assistant must use the power of the baton to control this ghoulish orchestra of the undead and lead them in concert. The story of the Sorcerer's Apprentice is brought vividly to life in this eye-catching Family or Pops concert program.
