Cirque Du Soleil - Corteo enchants arenas

For the first time, Cirque du Soleil is now presenting the magic of its celebrated production “Corteo” in large arenas. The unique, cheerful procession of clowns and acrobats, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, will come to the Wiener Stadthalle from March 25th to 29th, 2020. A special feature is a revolving stage that divides the audience into two opposite areas, allowing viewers to experience the performance from the perspective of the artists, a novelty for Cirque du Soleil.

Corteo, originally conceived as a tent show, is considered one of Cirque du Soleil's outstanding public successes. Since its premiere, the show has thrilled more than eight million viewers in 19 countries on four continents. Corteo, which means “pageant” in Italian, means a cheerful procession, a festive parade that takes place in the imagination of a clown. The show combines the passion of the actor with the grace and strength of the acrobat. The audience enters an imaginary world full of fun and spontaneity in a magical place between heaven and earth.

The clown experiences the end of his time on earth in a carnival-like atmosphere, while compassionate angels watch over everything. Corteo contrasts the big with the small, the ridiculous with the tragic and the magic of perfection with the charm of imperfection. This emphasizes the clown's strength and fragility in equal measure. Its wisdom and kindness symbolize the humanity that lives in all of us. Corteo carries the music, alternately lyrical or playful, through a timeless festival in which illusion teases reality.

The stage concept puts the audience in a theater atmosphere that has never before been seen in this form at Cirque du Soleil arena shows. The curtains inspired by the Eiffel Tower were hand painted and give the stage a grandiose appearance. The buildings give the whole a poetic framework. A total of 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all over the world act at Corteo.
