Cirque du Soleil Makes Pensacola Debut with Two Sold-Out Performances at Pensacola Bay Center

Performing for the first time in Pensacola, Fla., Cirque du Soleil presented its classic production Saltimbanco to sold-out audiences at Pensacola Bay Center November 7 and 8. Saltimbanco is Cirque du Soleil's longest-running touring show, performed all over the world since its first appearance in 1982. The show makes its final curtain call in December in Montreal, Canada.

"It was a great privilege to bring the magic of Cirque du Soleil to this market for the first time," said Cyndee Pennington, Pensacola Bay Center general manager. "Saltimbanco has been performed for 11.5 million fans in more than 45 countries, and to have the opportunity to be part of its final season is a remarkable accomplishment for our arena."

Over 8,000 people attended the performances
