"Cirque Italia" is coming to Winston-Salem this weekend for seven performances.

Producers of the show say its the first of its kind in America, featuring a 35,000-gallon water stage which is used to incorporate water as part of acrobatic performances.

With everything from bull fighting, to high-flying acrobats, comedy and more--"Cirque Italia" says this old world style show is not the typical circus experience.

"Your 5-year-old is going to pay attention, and so will the 80-year-old adult. It's like that show that's just amazing you'll just love it," a "Cirque Italia" producer explained.

Each show lasts roughly two hours.
