READING, Pa. -

Bursts of color, high-flying acrobats, amazing choreography--just a few of the things you can expect at a Cirque du Soleil show.

This weekend you can step into the colorful, whimsical universe of Cirque du Soleil. The show "Saltimbanco"  opens Thursday night at the Sovereign Center in Reading.

More than 50 performers in bright colors will bring the stage to life. Neelanthi Vadivel, artistic director for Saltimbanco, says it's a show like no other.

"This is the one that set the bar. This really created the look for Cirque du Soleil. It's been touring for 20 years and this is a bit of a farewell tour. It is closing down this year, so this is really your last chance to see the show," explained Vadivel.

The show opens Thursday night at 7:30 and there are four shows running through Saturday night.

Tickets are still available.
