(HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY) -- Cirque du SoleilTM is pleased to announce that the Saltimbanco Arena Tour will stop at Northern Kentucky University's Bank of Kentucky Center in Highland Heights, Kentucky, for a limited engagement from October 8 to 12, 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 before a combined audience of 10 million people.
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, hails from Canada and 20 other countries.
Tickets range from $40 to $95 for adults and $32 to $76 for children (12 and under).
