At the DCU Center From January 3 to 6, 2019 

Tickets on Sale Now!

Next year we are going to surprise the girls with their first Cirque du Soleil show, when it makes a stop at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA.  My husband and I took a few Cirque du Soleil shows before we had the girls, but haven't been since -- over 9 years now.  So many great new shows have be added, and I continually hear from friends and family who take in one of the performances that it was amazing and like nothing they have seen before. 

I had been waiting until my girls were a little older and could sit for longer running show like this.  They have loved circus events we have brought them to, so I know they will love this part circus, part play, part musical extravaganza, all in one.  I can't wait to watch their eyes light up when the shows starts and they see what Cirque du Soleil is all about, and why so many families continue to buy tickets each year a show comes near them, so that they can plan a fun family day out, to take in a performance. 

Corteo looks amazing, based on the trailer I watched (see below to see for yourself), and it the perfect way to welcome 2019 with the family.  If you like buying family gifts to surprise your whole family with on Christmas morning, why not consider picking up tickets to take your family to Corteo.  Kids and adults of all ages will be mesmerized by the show and acts, and will be talking about the show and their favorite parts for some time. 

Here is more about the show, followed by a chance for one lucky reader to win a family four pack of tickets. :-)

About the Show:

This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal under the Big Top in April 2005.

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

The concept and disposition of the stage bring the audience in a theatrical atmosphere like never seen before in Cirque du Soleil arena shows. 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.

The cast of Corteo includes 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world."
