CIRQUE DU SOLEIL TO PRESENT SALTIMBANCO IN CEDAR PARK

Thursday, August 30, 2012
Saltimbanco

SEVEN PERFORMANCES ONLY FROM DECEMBER 12-16 AT CEDAR PARK CENTER

Tickets Available Now for All Performances

August 20, 2012:
  Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that Saltimbanco will be performing in Cedar Park from December 12 – 16, 2012 at Cedar Park Center for seven performances only.

Tickets for the general public are available now at www.cirquedusoleil.com/saltimbanco, www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

Saltimbanco is Cirque du Soleil’s longest-running touring show and has performed since 1992 to wide-spread acclaim to sell-out audiences in Europe, North and South America, Australia, Japan, and New Zealand for more than 11.5 million enthusiastic fans.

Classic Cirque du Soleil at its best, Saltimbanco is a thrilling and kaleidoscopic celebration of awe inspiring artistry and agility. With a cast of 50 high-caliber artists hailing from 20 different countries, Saltimbanco features breathtaking acrobatics and unbelievable athleticism during solo spotlights and epic ensembles. From the seemingly impossible balancing, jumping and spinning during the Chinese Poles or the Russian Swing to the gravity-defying Bungees and Trapeze,  the crowd pleasing Juggling and Acrobatic Bicycle, to the celebrated and very unique Clowns. Technical expertise and extravagant design are woven together by uplifting spectacular costumes, amazing lighting, humor and enchanting music and magic. Full of colour, amusement and amazement, Saltimbanco is a fun show for the whole family to enjoy.

Saltimbanco —from the Italian “saltare in banco,” which literally means “to jump on a bench”—explores the urban experience 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. A signature show, it is inspired by the urban fabric of the metropolis and its colourful inhabitants. Decidedly baroque in its visual vocabulary, the show’s eclectic cast of characters draws spectators into a fanciful, dreamlike world, an imaginary city where diversity is a cause for hope.

Praise for Saltimbanco:
“Gracefully athletic theatre” - The London Times
“Human exuberance and physicality” - Variety Magazine (USA)
“Myth meets magic…An unearthly mixture of commedia dell'arte and rock-concert razzle” - The New York Times
