Cirque Du Soleil Returns to Australia with Saltimbanco

Cirque du Soleil is returning to Australia for a national five month tour of Saltimbanco, one of the company's most loved classic shows. The Saltimbanco tour will commence in Perth on 21 April 2011 and then travel on to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide with limited seasons in each city. For the first time, Cirque du Soleil will also perform in Hobart, Newcastle and Wollongong.

Saltimbanco, from the Italian "saltare in banco" which literally means to jump on a bench, is the show which started Australia's love affair with Cirque du Soleil when the internationally-acclaimed entertainment company first toured here in 1999. A thrilling, kaleidoscopic celebration of awe-inspiring artistry and agility, Saltimbanco will be presented in theatre mode in arena venues across the country with the same energetic and vibrant performance as experienced under the Big Top. Originally directed by Franco Dragone, the show features an international cast of over 50 performers and musicians from more than 20 different countries.

Optus is the presenting sponsor of the 2011 Saltimbanco Tour, which is the fourth consecutive Cirque du Soleil tour that Optus has sponsored.
