Cirque Italia takes visitors on a magical dream adventure

Jun 16, 2022 11:01AM ● By Peri Kinder

Step back in time with Cirque Italia as performers thrill audiences with a dazzling water circus. When a young boy falls asleep, he dreams of living in the 1950s when Elvis ruled the radio, poodle skirts were the latest fad and revolutionary music changed a generation.

As the stage miraculously transforms into a 35,000-gallon water feature, the Cirque Italia “Aquatic Spectacular” offers drama, humor, daring adventures and captivating performances. 

The show features a talented unicyclist, master jugglers, an aerial duo, dazzling contortionists, wild balancing acts and fun music. And that’s just the first half. After the 20-minute intermission, where kids can get pictures taken with the Transformer Bumblebee, the show continues with breathtaking crossbow action, perch pole balancing and jawdropping acrobatics. An audience member even got to see the crossbow demonstration up-close and personal.

Started in 2012, Cirque Italia is an Italian entertainment company that brings a performance in European style. It is described as a “vivid, dramatic, and moving experience under a customized traveling tent.”

Cirque Italia believes multi-culturalism is its strongest asset. The show features performers from Argentina, Brazil, Romania, and many other countries. The incredible artists will wow you with their astounding acts. Cirque Italia’s mission is to provide high-class entertainment suitable for all age groups, where all are welcome at the strictly animal-free shows!

The Salt Lake show runs through Sunday, June 19 at White Ball Park, under the stunning white and blue big-top tent. After Salt Lake, Cirque Italia moves to Provo where it will delight audiences at the Provo Towne Centre (1200 Towne Centre Blvd.) on June 23-26. Tickets range from $10-$50. 

Cirque Italia offers one free child admission with every full-priced paying adult ticket in levels 2 or 3. Call 941-704-8572 to get the promo code. Visit cirqueitalia.com for tickets and information.
