One of the most beloved Cirque du Soleil productions is back on tour for a limited run of six performances in Houston.
Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous, festive parade imagined by a clown as a celebration of his own life after his life.
Far from grim or somber, the lavish procession and celebration features a cast of 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world.
About Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo
In the company of flying angels, a beloved entertainer imagines his own funeral procession in the form of a festive and lavish parade.
They say write what you know, so as he passes from this life, the comedian imagines what he already knows and adds a little heaven to it. His dreaming creates a spellbinding world brought to life under the bigtop by dazzling costumes and sets.
The drama of the real lives of traveling performers merges with the surreal to create Cirque du Soleil’s trademark visuals and a mysterious journey that’s hard to forget.
