Ever since I saw my first Cirque show under the big top on the banks of the Ohio River I have been hooked!  Cirque du Soleil’s CORTEO is coming to Cincinnati next week and I cannot wait.  And the best thing is that it will begin it’s run on my birthday!  What a perfect way to spend my birthday, at a show that astounds and wows with every act.

CORTEO will be taking over the US Bank Arena for one long weekend only, so you will want to get your tickets right away.  Cirque du Soleil shows are always a grand experience for all ages.

Here’s a sneak peek of the show:

Doesn’t this show look downright delightful?  I love the music and theatrics that they give us a glimpse of in this Corteo trailer.  I have watched it over and over again and now I cannot wait to see CORTEO in all it’s glory.

Cirque du Soleil’s CORTEO:

One of the best-loved Cirque du Soleil productions is back on tour: Starting May 3, 2018 at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati

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 portion of humanity that is within each of us. The music, by turns lyrical and playful, carries CORTEO through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

The cast of CORTEO includes 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world.
