Cirque Du Soleil returns to Manchester with a captivating and magical show.
Saltimbanco is one of Cirque Du Soleil’s most famous shows. Drawing inspiration from the Italian phrase “saltare in banco”, meaning to jump on a bench, Saltimbanco finds magic in the life of the metropolis from towering skyscrapers to the bustle and energy of the city’s streets.
Saltimbanco is perhaps the most joyful show in Cirque Du Soleil’s repertoire. Where Quidam, the show that sold out the MEN last year, uses darker elements to highlight the tension of the story, Saltimbanco sees the world-famous circus troupe embrace kaleidoscopic colours and upbeat music in a celebration of the diversity of the city.
Expect to see Cirque Du Soleil’s magic at its best with trapeze artists, aerial dancers, acrobats, contortionists, clowning and jugglers in this spellbinding and unmissable show.
Saltimbanco is on at the MEN Arena from 9th-14th June 2010. Roomzzz is one of the hotels near the MEN Arena. The perfect complement to a great night in Manchester.
