‘Corteo’ by Cirque du Soleil is happening in Victoria this weekend


Experience the magic of Cirque du Soleil without having to leave the island!

Back in April, the largest theatrical producer in the world announced that their newest show, Corteo, will be at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre from October 4th to 7th.

This Thanksgiving, you won’t want to miss out on this bit of magic as the classic, joyous story of a life well-lived enthrals the audience with its comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.

Directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, this surreal production first featured in Montreal 13 years ago, and has since become one of Cirque du Soleil’s most popular shows, airing in 64 cities in 19 countries on 4 continents.

‘Corteo’ means ‘cortege’ in Italian, and is the depiction of a festive procession imagined by a clown, which turns out to be meant for his own funeral.

There are still a few tickets remaining, so grab them while you can!

Check out the trailer:
