Step inside the world of Cirque du Soleil and discover Saltimbanco...
Saltimbanco – from the Italian “saltare in banco” (to jump on a bench) – features an international cast of over 50 performers and musicians from more than 20 different countries. Presented in premium ‘intimate-mode’ arena venues, this is classic Cirque at its best - a thrilling, kaleidoscopic celebration of awe-inspiring artistry and agility. Set inside an imaginary metropolis of colourful inhabitants, Saltimbanco will enthral with the seemingly impossible balancing, jumping and spinning of the Chinese Poles and Russian Swing, the gravity-defying Bungees and Trapeze, and the crowd-pleasing Juggling, Acrobatic Bicycle and Clowns. Breathtaking acrobatics and extravagant design are mixed with spectacular costumes, amazing lighting, humour, enchanting live music and magic. Overflowing with colour, fun and amazement, Saltimbanco is for everybody to enjoy.
“Myth meets magic… an unearthly mixture of commedia dell-arte and rock concert dazzle.” – The New York Times

Beginning as a group of 20 street performers in 1984, Cirque du Soleil is now a major Quebec-based organization providing high-quality artistic entertainment. The company has close to 5,000 employees, including 1,200 artists from 40 different countries. Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to almost 80 million spectators in over 200 cities on five continents. In 2011, Cirque du Soleil will be presenting 20 shows simultaneously throughout the world. “Cirque du Soleil began with a very simple dream. A group of young entertainers got together to amuse audiences, see the world, and have fun doing it. Every year, the audiences get bigger, we continue to discover new places and ideas, and we’re still having fun.”
“Human exuberance and physicality, the performers enthral with one act after another.”
