About the Show
The Italian word “corteo” means cortege, which is another world for procession, and you will experience quite the procession during this performance. The performance focuses on a clown as he imagines his own funeral. As you can imagine, clowns don’t have normal funerals. This clown’s funeral is a carnival of sorts, with the clown giving an outside-looking-in perspective. The clown’s funeral has all the best performers around, from acrobats to jugglers, and the music is unbelievable.
This show is about more than watching acrobatic acts and juggling, though. It’s about life and death, and the humanity that is part of everyone, including clowns. This is more serious than many of the other Cirque du Soleil performances, but it still manages to be joyful. It is quite an experience.

A Tale of Two Shows
What’s interesting about Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo is you are essentially treated to two shows in one. Keep your eyes open to see spectacular visuals that will take you inside of a dream. Where else would you see flying bicycles and dancers floating through air if not in a dream? If you close your eyes, you will hear haunting music that includes operatic whispers and an assortment of musical instruments, including Spanish guitars. Be sure to close your eyes for a bit to enjoy the other side of the performance. The music sounds even better when you only use your ears.
