Cirque du Soleil CORTEO Making Two Stops in Colorado
One of the best-loved Cirque du Soleil productions is coming to two venues in Colorado. CORTEO will be in Broomfield and Loveland from May 24 to June 3. The show will visit Broomfield at the 1STBANK Center from May 24 to 27 and Loveland at the Budweiser Events Center for from May 31 to June 3, 2018. Show times vary.
This unique production premiered in Montreal in April 2005 and has visited
64 cities in 19 countries. The cast of CORTEO includes 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world.
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.
Tickets for the show in Loveland are $56-$130 and are available at the Budweiser Events Center Box Office. Tickets for the show in Broomfield are $39.00 - $135.00 and are available at Altitude Tickets.
