The Cirque du Soleil touring show, Corteo, is one of many Cirque du Soleil productions being performed around the world.

Corteo, which means "cortege" in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. He pictures his own funeral in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by angels, with fluffy white wings.

Like other Cirque du Soleil shows, it dazzles audiences with innovative circus acts, like walking upside-down on a high-wire. It encourages viewers to participate in the show by bouncing a "balloon lady" into the air. It creates laughter, surprise and awe.

Corteo features 50 artists from 13 different countries: Armenia, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, France, Italy, Romania, Russia, Spain, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Quebec-based Cirque du Soleil is a leading provider of quality entertainment with nearly 3,000 employees, including 700 artists, from 40 different countries.

With its international headquarters in Montreal, Cirque du Soleil has thrilled over 50 million spectators in almost 100 cities on four continents.

Cirque du Soleil has received prestigious awards, including the Emmy, Drama Desk, Bambi, ACE, Gemini, Félix, and Rose d'or de Montreux.
