CORTEO, which means “cortege” in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown.The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.
Clowns have gotten a bad rap, pop culture-wise, in the last few years. But the lovable character at the center of Cirque du Soleil – CORTEO is definitely not it. The clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by quietly caring angels. As he passes from this life, the comedian’s reverie blends past reality with heavenly fantasy, creating a spellbinding world brought to life by dazzling costumes and sets.

This amazing show is packed with Cirque’s seemingly impossible acrobatics, “for a display of human physicality that defies the laws of physics” (LA Weekly), as well as lyrical and playful music carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see this theatrical procession of poetic characters and graceful acrobats!
