Cirque du Soleil bring their enchanting show, Corteo to the UK and Ireland for a limted run this Summer.
It will be the first time audience here will have seen Corteo, which means ‘cortage’ in Italian, as we follow a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown.
The Cirque du Soleil show merges the passion of the actor with the grace of the acrobat, plunging audiences into a theatrical world of comedy, fun and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.
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 show will be at the following venues across these dates:
Leeds First Direct Arena – 18 to 21 June 2020
London The O2 Arena – 24 June to 5 July 2020
Dublin 3Arena – 8 to 19 July 2020
