Bringing the Vegas to Nashvegas (ugh, does everyone else hate that term as much as we do?), Cirque du Soilel‘s Saltimbanco opens tonight at the Sommet Center and will be running through Sunday, adding a little, um, flavor to our Easter weekend! Cirque du Soileil needs little explanation, so we’ll cut straight to the chase – Discount $25 tickets are available here (thanks to loyal tipster Chris Chamberlain for the link). And for those who want to know a little more about this particular show:
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 is a Cirque du Soleil signature show inspired by the urban fabric of the metropolis and its colorful inhabitants. Decidedly baroque in its visual vocabulary, the show’s eclectic cast of characters draws spectators into a fanciful, dreamlike world, an imaginary city where diversity is a cause for hope.
