Corteo Returns!

It’s been a long time coming. First announced way back on July 21, 2016 – Corteo’s Arena Remount is now on!

Corteo first premiered in Montreal in 2005 and has visited more than 60 cities in 19 different countries as a Big Top show before transforming in an arena show in 2017. More than 8 million people have been enthralled by the world of Corteo. In the remount process, from the Big tent to the arena, a completely new stage and acrobatic structure have been fabricated. A good portion of the original design had to be adapted for that matter. And new acts have been added with only a small adaptation to the original story line…

Hula-Hoop — At the height of a frenzied moment, a gypsy performer emerges, causing everyone to stop. Using her entire body and all her limbs, she dazzles them with her ability to spin and twirl a multitude of hoops.

Suspended Pole — Accompanied by the distant sounds of guitar and impassioned vocals, a young ingénue discovers the sheer pleasure of exploring movement and contortion-like shapes while fl ying above the ground on a suspended pole.


The clown Mauro has passed, but his spirit is still with us. Instead of mourning, the funeral cortege celebrates the here and hereafter with laughter and exuberance. Rich, extravagant memories frolic with the senses. The sound of laughter peals around the stage, visions of joyous tumblers and players fascinate the eyes. Regret and melancholy retreat in the face of a cavalcade of lively recollections of a life gloriously lived. A festive parade that entertains; the perfect accolade for an artist whose life was dedicated to revelry and making merry.
