Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Saltimbanco’ bids adieu
Cirque du Soleil’s longest-running touring show, “Saltimbanco,” is making its farewell tour, after which it is to be retired. It first played Boston in 1993, at Fan Pier, under Cirque’s Grand Chapiteau. Now it has returned as an arena show with a rock band. Although the audience isn’t physically encircled by the action the way it was in the big top, the performers’ irrepressible physical energy still makes it seem that all the world is their stage.
