We’ve got the best news: Get ready for an enchanting experience this Christmas season in Saskatoon as Cirque du Soleil makes its grand return! Corteo is coming to Sasktel Centre from December 21 to 24 and tickets are on sale now. It’s the perfect event to bring a smile to the faces of every member of your family, from the youngest to the wisest.
Corteo, an Italian word for cortege or joyous procession offers a unique spectacle as done best by Cirque du Soleil. The show introduces you to Mauro, a nostalgic clown who dreams about his funeral in a carnival atmosphere. You’ll be enchanted as Mauro looks back on his experiences and celebrates his life contrasting the silly with tragic, the perfection versus imperfection.
Part of the inspiration for Corteo is drawn from “The Grand Parade: Portrait of the Artist as Clown”, displayed at the National Gallery of Canada. You will see the strength of the clown and watch as fantasy teases reality. Your family will love the music and the amazing circus acts while immersing yourself in the life and death of the clown Mauro. Watch the performers dance while suspended from a chandelier, see them bounce and tumble with zest, and witness captivating horizontal bar feats.
If you’ve never been to Cirque du Soleil (Circus of the Sun), you will discover the extraordinary at a show you won’t soon forget. You and your family will be transported into a magical world. Cirque du Soleil have been offering show-stopping performances in over eighty countries since their conception in Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec from a troupe of street performers in 1984, and they continue to provide their audience with entertainment that defies conformity.
