Cirque Italia is setting sail for Coralville, transforming a 35,000-gallon water stage into a large ship for this year’s water circus experience. Audiences will see artists from around the globe perform feats of contortion, magic, archery, aerial elegance and the Wheel of Death. Each act will sport a theme from various Italian ports of call, with, for example, the stop in Venice featuring Venetian masks. New this year are Bellagio-style fountains under the huge blue and white tent.
