Corteo, the latest and most enchanting Cirque du Soleil’s arena production, is now touring in North America. The show will visit Rio Rancho at the Santa Ana Star Center from April 11 to 14, 2019 for a limited run of six performances. Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. 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 turns lyrical and playful carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.
