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.

If all the world's a stage, Misty Copeland is a frequently featured performer. And as a classical dancer, Copeland is certainly comfortable in the spotlight.

Cincinnati is replete with the arts, from museums to dance to theater to music. 

The massive renovations to Memorial Hall (next to Music Hall on Elm Street) are almost complete and the building will come alive starting Thanksgiving weekend.
