Corteo which means "procession" in Italian is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. Corteo's troupe of artists is made up of 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from around the world.
Combining acrobatic prowess, comedy and acting, Corteo immerses the viewer in a theatrical world filled with fun and spontaneity, located in a strange space between heaven and earth.
In a fairground atmosphere, the clown evokes his own funeral, under the attentive gaze of a flock of benevolent angels. Opposing the big and the small, the ridiculous and the tragic, the magic of perfection and the charm of imperfection, the show draws on the strength and fragility of the clown, but also on his wisdom and tenderness, to illustrate the part of humanity in each of us. Carried by sounds sometimes lyrical, sometimes funny, Corteo is a timeless festival where illusion comes close to reality.
The design and layout of the stage transports the spectator into a theatrical atmosphere never seen in an arena at Cirque du Soleil, thus setting the stage for Corteo's poetic universe. The curtains surrounding the stage, inspired by the Eiffel Tower, and the handpainted curtains, give a grandiose aspect to the scene.
