Corteo, the latest Cirque du Soleil’s arena production, embark on a new journey throughout North America. The show will visit Worcester at the DCU Center from January 3 to 6, 2019 for a limited run of six performances.  This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal under the Big Top in April 2005. Since then, the show has been a great success and has amazed 8 million people in 64 cities in 19 countries on four continents.

 

Our assistant publisher in Atlanta saw the show back in September and was instantly one of her favorites.  She was also able to see the rehearsal and some backstage fun.  You can read about it on REVIEW OF CIRQUE DU SOLEIL CORTEO.

 

CORTEO

 

What is the meaning of Corteo?

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.

 

SYNOPSIS OF CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S CORTEO:

The clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by quietly caring angels. Juxtaposing the large with the small, the ridiculous with the tragic and the magic of perfection with the charm of imperfection, the show highlights the strength and fragility of the clown, as well as his wisdom and kindness, to illustrate the portion of humanity that is within each of us. The music turns lyrical and playful carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

The concept and disposition of the stage bring the audience in a theatrical atmosphere like never seen before in Cirque du Soleil arena shows. The set curtains, inspired by the Eiffel Tower, and the central curtains, which were hand-painted, give a grandiose feel to the stage. This sets the tone for the poetry of Corteo.

 

 

 

The cast of Corteo includes 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world.
