If you’re in LA for the time being, or at least until April 30th, then run, don’t walk to DTLA to catch Cirque du Soleil’s “Corteo”, a stunningly beautiful and mesmerizing show that has made its return to LA. Back in 2019, “Corteo” was held at the Forum Arena, and now it’s central at the Microsoft Theatre in DTLA.

Editors from our team at Bello were lucky enough to catch the opening night of “Corteo” and we cannot stop talking about the show to everyone asking what to do on an evening night. The show easily transports you to a dreamlike world of acrobatics, music, and theatrical storytelling. As described by Cirque du Soleil, the production follows the journey of a clown named Mauro as he imagines his own funeral procession and is visited by the spirits of his past, all brought to life by the talented cast of acrobats, dancers, and musicians.

From the opening sequence, it’s clear that “Corteo” is an incredibly ambitious production that pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in a live performance. The acrobatic feats on display are awe-inspiring, from the graceful aerial ballet to the jaw-dropping contortionist acts. The costumes and set design are equally impressive, with each scene feeling like a work of art in motion.

But what really sets “Corteo” apart is its emotional depth and the signature form of storytelling that sets Cirque du Soleil apart. The show is not just a showcase of physical prowess, but a moving exploration of the human experience, with themes of love, loss, and the passage of time woven throughout. The audience is taken on a journey that is both joyful and poignant, leaving a lasting impression long after the show is over. Overall, Cirque du Soleil’s “Corteo” is a must-see production for anyone who appreciates the artistry and magic of live performance. It’s a testament to the power of human creativity and imagination, and a true feast for the senses that will leave you breathless and inspired.
