Fans of the Cirque du Soleil will be happy to learn that world famous show comes back to Brussels in November. Portrayed as one of the most magical of its arena productions, ‘Corteo’ is set to play from 21 to 24 November in Forest National, Brussels and from 13 to 22 March in the Lotto Arena, Antwerp.
‘Corteo’ is an unseen theatrical, festive procession full of fun, humour and spontaneity in a mysterious place somewhere between heaven and earth.
The acrobatic show is written and directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca and has since been seen by more than 8 million people across the globe since 2005 when it all started in Montreal.
Corteo means “cortege” in Italian and the public can expect an amazing story which will include some fifty acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all over the world.
The clown Mauro has passed, but his spirit is still with us. Instead of mourning, the funeral cortege celebrates the here and hereafter with laughter and exuberance. Rich, extravagant memories frolic with the senses. The sound of laughter peals around the stage, visions of joyous tumblers and players fascinate the eyes. Regret and melancholy retreat in the face of a cavalcade of lively recollections of a life gloriously lived. A festive parade that entertains; the perfect accolade for an artist whose life was dedicated to revelry and making merry.
