8 May, KUALA LUMPUR – A host of privileged members of Citizen Setia were rewarded with a magical experience at the ‘Cirque De La Symphonie’ held at Dewan Filharmonik Petronas courtesy of S P Setia recently. The lucky Setia property purchasers, referred as Citizen Setia, were mesmerised by the grandeur and spectacular performance which received critical acclaim by all present.
The performance recreated the breathtaking musical fusion of circus and classical music complete with cirque acts such as aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, balancers and strongmen. This exciting production is designed to bring the magic of cirque to the concert hall, adding much energy and vigour to the whole concert experience.
“It was a real pleasure to enjoy a performance which was not only a three-dimensional entertainment extravaganza but also accompanied by ‘live’ orchestral music performed by our Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra,” said Dato’ Khor Chap Jen, S P Setia’s President & CEO who was present at the event.
He added, “The Citizen Setia platform will continue to offer bespoke lifestyle experiences and rewards for those who own a Setia property. Indeed, Citizen Setia remains true to its tagline – An Identity of Peerless Prestige.”
Led by Gerard Salonga, the ‘Cirque De La Symphonie’ offered 17 pieces of music by 14 composers, mostly dances of one sort or another. The repertoire includes Dvorak’s Carnival Overture, Khachaturian’s ballet score from Gayaneh, Bizet’s Carmen Suite, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, themes from Mission Impossible and Superman, and songs of the South American flavours.
For more than 10 years, it has thrilled and bedazzled veteran concert goers and new patrons as they see accomplished cirque acts perform to live symphony music. They include world record holders, gold-medal winners of international competitions, Olympians and some of the most experienced talent ever seen.
“I am very grateful to S P Setia for inviting me to experience such a magnetic affair. When the artists of Cirque de la Symphonie performed to the accompaniment of the full Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, an incredible fusion of these two great art forms took place. The synergy and synchronicity between the orchestra and these artists was an absolute delight to watch!” said Martin Richard Haeger, MBE, who owns a Setia property at ViiA Residences, KL Eco City and attended the event together with his friends.
The ‘Cirque De La Symphonie’ is one of the many perks offered to Citizen Setia who can also look forward to a host of coming events this year including exclusive festive celebrations, free movie tickets and fine dine experiences.
