Cirque du Soleil™ is pleased to announce that the Saltimbanco Arena Tour will stop in Honolulu at the Blaisdell Arena for a limited engagement from October 30 to November 16, 2008. 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 and a combined audience of 10 million people.
In 2007, Saltimbanco embarked on a tour of more than 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 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.
Saltimbanco tickets are now available and range from $40 to $95 for adult and $32 to $76 for children (12&-).
