Weirdness in Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Kurios’ does not disappoint

Review: Major characters that appear throughout the show include Mr. Microcosmos, who wears a giant globelike portal on his belly that carries special cargo; Nico the Accordion Man, wearing a brilliantly designed costume in which the legs, torso and hat resemble concertinas, or a really long brown accordion file; and the “Kurios,” a creature that could be a robot owned by some avant-garde futuristic family.

No chance of snoozing through this Fort Worth Symphony concert

Review: Friday’s performance tested the sonic limits of Bass Hall. Also, there was a significant tightening of security at Bass Hall. There were more security personnel than usual, with bag checks and leaflets detailing forbidden items and those requiring inspection, without explanation to the audience. There were no apparent incidents, however.
