Cirque Du Soleil, Corteo

This Sunday we went to Cirque Du Soleil, Corteo in San Francisco. I haven't been to a Cirque Du Soleil in over a decade so it was nice to go to one. I was impress with the sofistication and complexity of the setup, from the moving floors to the chandeliers that the girls swung from. The show was pretty good. I would recommend it. We had pretty good seats too, 2nd row! Awesome!

Here's an excerpt from SFGate:

"Corteo" means "cortege," or "joyous procession," and the show tells the story of a dead clown who watches his own funeral parade through his imagination.

This is not the fantasyland of Cirque's 14 previous shows (four in residence in Las Vegas), but more like an intensified reality. Instead of the surreal, Technicolor forest of, say, Cirque's "Varekai," "Corteo" has the shabby-chic decor of an Anthropologie catalog. Instead of exotic lizards and nymphs, the characters are real people.

Go see it! Posted by Picasa
