About the eventCirque du Soleil: Corteo
Corteo, Cirque du Soleil’s most enchanting arena production, is back in North America and heading to Regina, set to charm audiences for the very first time. This one-of-a-kind production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, was performed for the first time in Montreal in April 2005. Since its creation, the show has dazzled over 10 million people, in 20 countries on 4 continents. Corteo, presented by Sun Life, will be presented at the Brandt Centre for 6 performances only, from December 14th to December 17th, 2023.
Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. Combining acrobatic feats, comedy and acting, the show plunges spectators into a theatrical world of fun and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.
In a carnival atmosphere, the clown pictures his own funeral taking place, 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 share of humanity within each of us. The music sometimes turns lyrical, sometimes playful, carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.
Tickets for Corteo in Regina are available online exclusively to Club Cirque members starting today at 10 am. For free subscription, visit clubcirque.com.
