The circus is coming!

Probably the world's most famous circus, Cirque du Soleil never fails to impress with its stunning shows. Now Shanghai is getting in on the action, as Saltimbanco prepares to head East. Taking its name from an Italian phrase meaning "jump on a bench", Saltimbanco promises plenty of cavorting and contorting. It's Cirque's longest-running show, and has played to over 12 million people since 1992.

Saltimbanco runs from September 21st to the 25th at the Mercedes Benz arena. Tickets 180 RMB - 980 RMB.
