Cirque du Soleil Corteo is the story of Mauro, an Italian clown who imagines his own funeral. He dreams of receiving homages from his circus friends at the funeral's commencement. During the course of the dream, he becomes master of ceremonies for a comedic take on Romeo and Juliet, kicks a soccer ball on the beach with a puppet and introduces a small person who floats over the crowd while attached to huge balloons.

Cirque du Soleil Corteo experience
After a hiatus of two years, Cirque du Soleil Corteo revised its show in 2017 to become compatible with arena presentations and to also have a double-sided stage. This allows the audience on both sides to be able to see all the action. As a touring production, Corteo features a carnival atmosphere at the Target Center in Minneapolis that is a must-see.
Cirque du Soleil Corteo background
Corteo debuted in 2005 and broke Cirque du Soleil's record for attendance at a premiere location, with more than 200,000 viewers. Corteo is an Italian word that means "cortege," or procession. This circus-style production is inspired partly by The Grand Parade: Portrait of the Artist as Clown, which is on display at the National Gallery of Canada.
Daniele Finzi Pasca, who was the founder of the Swiss clown troupe Teatro Sunil, is the director of Cirque du Soleil Cortero. The first presentations of Cirque du Soleil Cortero were presented under a large tent with a circular stage that had concentric rotating rings. The revised production takes place with a divided stage in an arena.
Cirque du Soleil Corteo noteworthy reviews

The review also said the "suspended angels who decorate the stage picture" were "particularly ingenious." Despite the funeral storyline, Variety says, "there�s no crying or audience malaise in evidence, just laughter, chills and all-around amazement."
