Cirque Du Soleil Returning To San Diego With Corteo This September 6-10 Enter For A Chance To Receive 2 Complimentary Tickets

August 20, 2023

Cirque du Soleil is coming back to San Diego with Corteo, a dazzling production taking over Pechanga Arena for a limited run this September 6 through 10.

Corteo is a Cirque du Soleil arena production that first premiered in Montreal under the Big Top in April 2005. Since its creation, the show has amazed over 10 million spectators in 20 countries on four continents. Corteo will be presented at the Pechanga Arena for seven shows only from Wednesday, September 6 through Sunday, September 10.

Corteo, which means "cortège" in Italian, is 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.

In a Cirque du Soleil first, the stage will be central in the arena and divide the venue, with each half of the audience facing the other half, giving a unique perspective not only of the show, but also a performer’s eye view of the audience. An 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. This sets the tone for the poetry of Corteo.
