Creativity is key for Cirque du Soleil as it transitions tent performances of "Corteo" to large arenas, as it does this weekend when the show comes to Cincinnati's U.S. Bank Arena.

The old way of doing it involved running underneath bleachers. That doesn't work in an arena, so Cirque du Soleil commissioned the building of a machine last year that solves the problem.

One of Cirque du Soleil's most popular productions, which began life under a big top, will be coming to Cincinnati this spring in its new arena staging. 

Cirque du Soleil is returning to Cincinnati with its unique style of acrobatics, gymnastics, dance and theatre.
