Cirque du Soleil: Saltimbanco at Sommet Center 

Big Top

Big Top
For those of you keeping score, the 20th century was the most brutal period of human history. On our way into this new one, we don't seem to be making a whole lot of progress. However, according to Cirque du Soleil, it's getting better all the time. Conceived as an antidote to the violence of the last 100 years, this spectacular new chapter features juggling, artistic bicycles, bungee dancing and a Russian Swing that sends performers three stories into the air. The Saltimbanco universe is a city where fantastic races, creatures and characters live together in harmony. The amazing choreography probably doesn't hurt.
