Cirque du Soleil Saltimbanco is coming to Memphis for the first time ever for 2 days only. Saltimbanco will perform at FedExForum, Wednesday February 20 7:30pm and Thursday February 21 at 3:30pm and 7:30pm. Tickets will go on sale Monday, December 10 at 10 am.
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.
After traveling the world and playing in over 74 cities on 5 continents since its conception in 1992, Saltimbanco returns to North America. Saltimbanco is embarking on a tour of over 40 arenas across Canada and the United States. iShares® is the proud sponsor of the Saltimbanco U.S. tour.
Saltimbanco belongs to the emblematic style of Cirque du Soleil, a style that borrows from theatre, dance and music and where spectacular costumes, lighting and make-up take pride of place. Full of color, amusement and amazement, Saltimbanco is a fun show for the whole family to enjoy, a great outing for everyone. For more information on the show visit www.cirquedusoleil.com.
