Clowns have gotten a bad rap in the last few years, but they aren't all bad! Some are just lovable humans looking for hope -- like the main character of Cirque du Soleil: CORTEO
. In the company of flying angels, a beloved entertainer imagines his own funeral procession in the form of a festive and lavish parade. They say write what you know, so as he passes from this life, the comedian imagines what he already knows and adds a little heaven to it. His dreaming creates a spellbinding world brought to life under the bigtop by dazzling costumes and sets. The drama of the real lives of traveling performers merges with the surreal to create Cirque du Soleil's
trademark visuals and a mysterious journey you can't forget. This amazing show is packed with Cirque
's seemingly impossible acrobatics, "for a display of human physicality that defies the laws of physics" (LA Weekly
), as well as lyrical and playful music that will fill the Grand Chapiteau, bringing you into the mystical borderlands where illusion teases reality at the Toyota Center in Houston.
