Corteo, the latest arena production from Cirque du Soleil, will be presented at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena (formerly the Air Canada Centre) from December 12 to 16, 2018, for a limited run of eight performances. Directed by the talented Daniele Finzi Pasca, the unique concept and configuration of the stage offers the audience a one of a kind theatrical atmosphere with vantage points never seen before in Cirque du Soleil arena shows. This spectacular performance will feature 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from around the world. Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. Mauro, the Dreamer Clown, is the central character who imagines his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by quietly caring angels. Instead of mourning, the funeral cortege celebrates the here and hereafter with laughter and exuberance, juxtaposing the large with the small, the ridiculous with the tragic, and the magic of perfection with the charm of imperfection. Corteo is a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.
