What Is It About?
Corteo, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, is about a clown, Mauro, picturing his own funeral. He sees it as a joyous parade that is a celebration of life. This suits Mauro whose life was about spreading happiness. Acrobats and actors alike perform feats to the playful music by composer Jean-François Côté that simultaneously amaze and fill the audience with joy. The Seattle Post has called it “a glorious amalgam of the earthy and the transporting, with a circle-of-life spin.”
The set is meant to showcase an area between heaven and earth. The circular stage is divided into two. This way each half of the audience can see the other. The mixture of baroque and modern styles is visible. There are huge Italian-style curtains which have been painted with watercolors and inspired from a painting by Adolphe Willette. The center of the stage has a labyrinth which has the same design as on the floor of Chartres cathedral.
Corteo includes a dance by Mauro’s lovers as they are suspended from a grand chandelier. There are feats which defy gravity as two men faceoff and do triple somersaults and a child flies with the help of giant balloons. The excitement of Mauro’s fellow travelers is palpable when they jump and dance on oversized beds.
The production’s tag line itself is ‘Get carried away with life’ so buy Cirque Du Soleil Corteo Duluth GA tickets and enjoy a performance bursting with life.
