Cirque Du Soleil takes over Cedar Park

Posted: Updated:

Cirque Du Soleil has taken over Cedar Park and this will be your last time to see the gravity defying acrobatics before they leave the country.

"Saltimbanco" started Wednesday night to a nearly full house and will perform at the Cedar Park Center until December 16.

Actors spent all day Tuesday training before the big premiere. Actors have stayed fresh for all of their performances and the shows have been full of energy.

The exciting show includes acrobatics, like Russian Swing. It's one of the most dangerous acts where acrobats fly into the air and do a serious of flips before landing; sometimes on other performers.

"The artists jump off a moving pendulum, a swing, and they go about 35, 40 feet off the ground. So focus is extremely important, and we have to make sure that the artists also always perform safely," said Maxime Charbomneau with Cirque Du Soleil.

There is something for every age; from clowns to contortionist, along with other body defying acts.

The lights and sounds of "Saltimbanco" will no longer be able to be seen in the states. This will be the last American city to see "Saltimbanco's" performances before heading to Montreal. After that, the company is shutting down this branch of Cirque Du Soleil after more than 20 years.
