For a limited time only, join Cirque du Soleil and its international cast for “Corteo,” a magical parade of clowns, acrobats and musicians, imagined by a clown at his funeral. Conceived and directed by veteran writer and choreographer Daniele Finzi Pasca, the show is set between Heaven and Earth, with angels watching over the experience and escorting the Dreamer Clown Mauro from act to act as he enjoys his funeral procession.

Since its inception in 1984, Cirque du Soleil has reinvented circus performance with a dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment. The latest show features 20 acts that range from silly clowns bouncing on beds to a beautiful lady balancing herself on a tightrope while musicians entertain her below to a gymnast balancing himself on several ladders while trying to reach an angel watching from above. Throughout the show, Mauro is joined by his friends, who try to keep him from going to heaven.
