Imagine athletics, visual beauty, acrobats, music and humor all combined in one amazing show. I had the opportunity to watch Cirque Du Soleil’s Corteo which is now playing at the Infinite Energy Arena. I’m always blown away by the amazing talent that exudes from each Cirque show. If you’ve never had the opportunity to see a Cirque production, you’re missing out.
It’s only showing for a limited engagement opportunity in our area. The show is visiting Duluth at the Infinite Energy Arena, from August 29 to September 2, 2018 for a limited run of seven performances. This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal under the Big Top in April 2005. Since then, the show has been a great success and has amazed 8 million people in 64 cities in 19 countries on four continents.
The area set up is definitely unique for watching a Cirque performance. It still felt very intimate and the circular stage leaves no bad seat. Everything is visually over-the-top. I love the costume design.
About Cirque Du Soleil Corteo
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 turns lyrical and playful carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.
The concept and disposition of the stage bring the audience in a theatrical atmosphere like never seen before in Cirque du Soleil arena shows. The set curtains, inspired by the Eiffel Tower, and the central curtains, which were hand painted, give a grandiose feel to the stage. This sets the tone for the poetry of Corteo.
