Classical music and breakdancing fusion performance delights Chicago families

When my husband and I first heard that Red Bull Flying Bach, a group of breakdancers who merge classical music into their performances, was coming to Chicago, we were beyond thrilled! Last Friday, we had the opportunity to attend the opening night performance and we were blown away.

It’s an all-ages show, and at only 70 minutes long, the performance was a good length for a 4-year-old, 3-year-old, and 2-year-old. In fact, they were mesmerized by the breakdancing and stayed content in their seats (most of the time).

Not only did we get to see hip hop and breakdancing, but listening to live classical music being played by two different pianists was a treat.

It’s fun!

While they did play classical music, they also played electrifying music that made everyone want to get up from their seat and dance.

Gorgeous setting.

Visiting the historic Civic Opera House is always a treat. It’s absolutely beautiful!

What are you waiting for? This is the final weekend they’ll be here, so go ahead and get your tickets, and be prepared to give a standing ovation.
