Highlight of Corteo

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL Corteo show arrives in Palma in August for a very short run which is expected to be very popular with audiences.
Corteo, which means “cortege” in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown who 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.
There are 16 different acts in this show at the Balearic Velodrome which lasts for two hours with a 20 minute intermission.
The cast is an international one, representing more than 18 nationalities.
Performers are from Argentina, Armenia, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, United Kingdom, Ukraine, United States and Uzbekistan.
Although you will generally hear French and English spoken on-site, many other languages are used.
Running from August 5 to August 14 with performances starting at 10pm (with additional matinees on the two Saturdays and no shows on August 8 or 9).
Tickets which cost between €31 and €91 and can be ordered online from the Cirque du Soleil website.
