The world premiere of Saltimbanco was held in Montreal on April 23, 1992
and featured a cast of 36 performers. During its 14-year tour under the big
top, the show visited 75 cities on five continents, for a total of more than
4,000 performances before a combined audience of 10 million people.
In 2007, Saltimbanco embarked on a tour of over 40 arenas across Canada
and the United States. The new tour model allows Cirque du Soleil to bring its
shows to additional cities, giving more people than ever the opportunity to
enjoy a Cirque du Soleil show in their own town.
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. Between whirlwind and lull, prowess and poetry, Saltimbanco takes
spectators on an allegorical and acrobatic journey into the heart of the city.
Saltimbanco belongs to the emblematic style of Cirque du Soleil - a
signature Cirque du Soleil show with a style that borrows from theatre, dance
and music and where spectacular costumes, lighting and make-up take pride of
place. The current cast of 49 artists, 15 of whom were part of the show's
original big top tour, hail from Canada and 20 other countries.
Full of colour, amusement and amazement, Saltimbanco is a fun show for
the whole family to enjoy, a great outing for everyone! Saltimbanco tickets
are now available and can be purchased online for all Cirque Club members at
www.cirquedusoleil.com Tickets range from $40 to $90 for adult and $32 to $72
for children (12&-).
