      Corteo, the most enchanting arena production from Cirque du Soleil, is heading to Halifax to charm audiences for the very first time at the Scotiabank Centre for six performances only, from Thursday, June 6 to Sunday, June 9, 2024. 

      This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, was performed for the first time in Montreal in April 2005. 
      Since its creation, Corteo - presented by Sun Life Global Investments - has amazed over 10 million people, in 22 countries on four continents and celebrates 1000 arena shows performed this month. 


      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 within each of us. The music turns lyrical and playful, carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

      In a Cirque du Soleil first, 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.
