While Alegría pursues
its triumphant North American tour, Cirque du Soleil
responds to a request from the Canadian government to create a show for the
heads of state gathered at the G7 Summit in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
And after its triumphant run in Japan, Saltimbanco
sets out to conquer Europe. Cirque's spectacular white big top with
seating for 2,500 spectators makes its first stop in Amsterdam, followed by
Munich, Berlin, Düsseldorf, and Vienna. Amsterdam becomes the site of Cirque
du Soleil's European Headquarters.
