Fancy Dancers

As a symphony-attending fancy person who wears silken waistcoats and black patent-leather opera pumps, you probably think you’ve seen it all: theatrical guest conductors, temperamental viola players, the solos of world-famous bassoon virtuosos. But the performance of Symphonic Quixotic, a collaboration of the Kansas City Symphony and the Quixotic ensemble, just might make your monocle pop out and become ensnared in the elaborate, fascinator–­augmented hairstyle of the woman sitting in front of you. The company performs dance, aerial acrobatics and percussion against the majestic sweep of Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major, themes from Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and other pieces. Performances are tonight and Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Lyric Theatre (1029 Central). Ticket prices range from $25 to $55. For more information, call 816-471-0400 or see
