Byrd's Eye View: Cirque du Soleil
Cirque du Soleil is an over-the-top extravaganza. It may not have the "hip factor" of some of the events we cover, but the level of showmanship can't be discounted. These performers display more athletic prowess in one hour with their contortions and acrobatics than most of us ever will in our entire lifetimes. And it is that reason that makes the show such an amazing spectacle.
Saltimbanco is a classic Cirque show that combines spectacular costumes, lighting and makeup with beautiful music and amazing circus tricks, including a trapeze, a Russian swing, Chinese poles, bungee artists, contortionists and jugglers to create a show unlike any other.
And you still have a chance to get in on the action. Tickets are still available for shows through Sunday, April 12. Visit www.cirquedusoleil.com/saltimbanco or call 770-2000 to purchase.
