Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy 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 humanity within each of us. The music, lyrical and playful, carries CORTEO through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

There is also a Meet and Greet opportunity for the Friday Apr 13 performance! Dive into the world of Corteo with this unique Premium Package. Get the best seats as well as an exclusive post-show Meet & Greet Photo Op with Artists.

With very limited availability, don’t let this unique opportunity fly away!
