For 7 performances only,
Cirque du Soleil’s festive and theatrical show
to perform in Victoria, from January 11th to January 14th 2024,
at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre!

Corteo, Cirque du Soleil’s most enchanting arena production, is back in North America and heading to Victoria, set to charm audiences. This one-of-a-kind production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, was performed for the first time in Montreal in April 2005. Since its creation, the show has dazzled over 10 million people, in 20 countries on 4 continents. Corteo, presented by Sun Life, will be presented at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre for 7 performances only, from January 11th to January 14th, 2024.

Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. Combining acrobatic feats, comedy and acting, the show plunges spectators into a theatrical world of fun and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.

In a carnival atmosphere, the clown pictures his own funeral taking place, 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 share of humanity within each of us. The music sometimes turns lyrical, sometimes playful, carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

The stage is central in the arena and divides the venue in two with each half of the audience facing the other half, giving a unique perspective to the audience and the performers. A never seen before atmosphere at a Cirque du Soleil arena show. 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.
