Corteo, the latest Cirque du Soleil’s arena production, is coming to the Giant Center in Hershey for seven performances from August 28 to September 1, 2019. And one lucky Central Penn Parent reader will win four tickets to the opening night of show!
The production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal under the Big Top in April 2005. Since then, 9 million people in 19 countries have seen the show, which has a cast of 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world.
Tickets for Corteo start at $54 each (processing fees apply). They can be purchased at the Giant Center Box Office, at 717-534-3911 or 800-745-3000, and online at HersheyEntertainment.com or TicketMaster.com.
Corteo, which is Italian for cortege, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show combines acting with grace and power of acrobatics 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 into 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.
