This was my third visit to Cirque du Soleil and I enjoyed every minute of the Corteo performance. They are simply put, the best!
Corteo performance includes all traditional circus elements: acrobatics, juggling, equilibristics, vaulting, clowns, aerial straps, balancing on a freestanding ladder, artistic cycling, danish pole. Amazing life sound and singing adds depth to each element. The costumes and decorations are well-thought with great imagination. It is forbidden to take pictures during the performance due to safety reasons.
The highlight of the show for me personally was Valentina (vertically challenged performer) flying on three huge balloons. The viewers were involved into the show, as we were asked to give Valentina a push up, when she goes down. The balloons were directed at the huge chandelier hanging above crowd and were afraid that balloons will pop. But that didn't happen and Valentina safely returned back to clown.
In conclusion: the Corteo performance isn't as thrilling as KOOZA or TORUK, but it is a very good performance for families with children. It is easy to understand, interactive, funny, amazing! I highly recommend for people of all ages!
