Cirque Éloize’s latest acrobatic adventure is inspired by the rich legacy of the Wild Wild West. 
 
America is expanding. The railroad is stretching westward to lands of untold promise. In the middle of the 
desert, a town comes to life. The Saloon doors swing open to reveal a motley cast of individuals, each
with a tale to tell.
 
In Cirque Éloize’s Saloon, the infectious energy of folk music and strains of fiddle set the tone for an
acrobatic comedy that sweeps spectators away in a mad flurry.
 
Under the spell of Saloon’s beautiful Belle, the lover sets off a chase worthy of the greatest Westerns.
Unfolds a series of unusual events mixing acrobatic prowess and inventive choreography. The lovebirds
on the run wreak havoc wherever they go, from the deserted plains to the depths of the mine, until the
final acrobatic duel.
 
Swing open the Saloon doors and enter a mythical world created by live music and the exhilarating pace
of spectacular performances. Let yourself get swept away by enthralling voices, magical harmonies and
live instrumentation. The timeless tunes of Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline set the traditional, epic scene for
a fast-paced show with no shortage of audience thrills.
 
Over the past 24 years, Cirque Éloize has travelled the planet with its 11 shows and hundreds of special
events. Some three million people in fifty countries have been charmed by the originality, intimacy, energy
and poetry of its creations. From the Magdalen Islands, "éloize" is an Acadian word meaning "heat
lightning". It captures the essence of Cirque Éloize: heat and energy.
 
Featuring classic songs from: Patsy Cline (Crazy), Johnny Cash (Bad News, Ring of Fire), Lead Belly (Where Did You Sleep Last Night, In the Pines) and a medley of timeless titles including Golden Slippers, Hard to Love, The Iron Beast, Ol' Square Dance, Ring of Fire, Ida Red, Cotton-Eyed Joe and an infamous hymn for the grand finale, Will the Circle Be Unbroken.
