Balloon Magic Symphonic Show is a tribute to the 80s

Spectacle honors children's TV program of the time

The most famous songs from one of the most beloved groups of children in the 80's that were very successful will be presented in a very different format than we know. With the objective of popularizing classical music and captivating more audiences for the genre, Petrobras Sinfônica brought to the Opus Theater “O Balão Mágico Sinfônico”. Conducted by Felipe Prazeres, the Petrobras Symphony Orchestra presents for the first time in São Paulo.

Those who attended the show were very moved. The conductor's animation was contagious and the singers Juliana Franco and Marcelo Coutinho who conducted together with the band was a show apart. The lighting very well synchronized with the presentations were very well executed. Many children were at the concert and they not only watched it but danced alongside their families showing that this show was not just for the little ones but for the whole family.

A very simple presentation with a black background and lighting that suited each song performed gave the singers, the band and the conductor more prominence. The focus was the interaction between them and theirs with the audience that was captivated with the delivery of a great show inspired by Turma do Balão Mágico that was a very successful children's band in the 80s and that sold more than 10 million copies of records in Brazil and originated a program on TV Globo (1983 - 1986). It was formed by Simony, Tob, Jairzinho, Mike, Ricardinho and Luciana. 

The audience went crazy with “Superfantástico”, “Amigos do Peito”, “Ursinho Pimpão”, “Baile dos Passarinhos”, “Lindo Balão Azul”, “Ai meu nose”, among other songs. In addition to Felipe Prazeres in conducting, the show was attended by soprano Juliana Franco, who has dubbed children's films such as “Anastacia” and “Era do Gelo”, and baritone Marcelo Coutinho, who lent his voice to 90s classics like "Beauty and the Beast" and "Aladdin".

Touring Brazil with the concerts “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Balão Mágico Sinfônico”, the projects integrate a series of initiatives by Petrobras Sinfônica to popularize classical culture and conquer a new audience of the genre. Still in the same style, the Orchestra has already presented concerts such as "Ventura" (Los Hermanos), "Thriller" (Michael Jackson), "Dark Side of the Moon" (Pink Floyd), "Black Album" (Metallica), children " The Wizard of Oz ”,“ The Little Prince ”,“ Os Saltimbancos ”, among others. After São Paulo, Petrobras Sinfônica will proceed to Santos (Teatro Municipal Brás Cubas) and Vitória (Centro Cultural Sesc Glória).

With a duration of 1 hour and 15 minutes, the concert is suitable for all ages and promises to be good entertainment for the family. Recalling that the Orchestra has performed this concert before at Cidade das Artes and at Teatro Riachuelo Rio.
