Symphony of Shadows, according to press notes, tells the story of a "woman combating a variety of sleep disorders, phantasmagorical night terrors, hypnotic horrors & other visually stunning conjurings from the subconscious depths of her own disturbed mind." The production merges "striking elements of circus & aerial arts, dance & movement, burlesque & operatic productions to vividly illustrate its storyline in a genre-defying form which evokes a live-action silent film."
The show's cast features members of the Rachel Klein Theater Ensemble, aerialists from the House of Yes, dancers from Martha Graham Company II, Alvin Ailey, the Love Show and Desert Sin Dance Company along with acrobatic interludes from Bro Circus and an original concerto by Sean Hagerty and a live electric string orchestra.
