Updated for the big arenas, this revived 1992 classic Cirque spectacular is in abundance of joyful and colorful acrobatics in a metropolis.
Saltimbanco -from the Italian "saltare in banco", which literally means "to jump on a bench"- explores urban life in all its myriad forms: the people who live there, their idiosyncrasies and likenesses, families and groups, the hustle and bustle of the street and the towering heights of skyscrapers. Between whirlwind and lull, prowess and poetry, Saltimbanco takes you on an allegorical and acrobatic journey into the heart of the city.
Saltimbanco is a Cirque du Soleil signature show inspired by the urban fabric of the metropolis and its colorful inhabitants. Decidedly baroque in its visual style , the show's eclectic troupe of characters draws you into a fanciful, dreamlike world, an imaginary city where diversity is a cause for hope.
Opening night: 31 October 2012
Closing night: 4 November 2012
