SEVILLE - The Spanish-Argentinian acrobatic troupe Puja! served up a spectacular opening to the International Festival of Theatre and Stage Arts in Seville on Tuesday, performing 40 metres above the ground alongside the city's famous cathedral and Giralda bell tower.

Onlookers were treated to the group's mixture of acrobatics, high-risk sports, dance, theatre and feats of engineering as the performers clung to "the ball," a stage suspended from a 50-meter-high crane.

The festival continues until 27 April.
