We all arrive at countless intersections in life, in which our desires collide with our fears. It’s the intersection of need and opportunity, dreams and reality, risk and security. So what do we do? What path do we take? For Benoit Glazer the risk was especially large but so was the reward.

Glazer is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and conductor who played professionally all over the world before taking a major risk and moving from Montreal to Orlando to become musical director of La Nouba for Cirque du Soleil.
