10 APR TO 20 APR



Corteo, Cirque du Soleil's most enchanting arena production, is back in Europe and on its way to Lisbon, ready to delight audiences at MEO Arena from April 10 to 20, 2025.
This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal under the Grand Chapiteau in April 2005 and has already delighted more than 10 million spectators in 22 countries on 4 continents.
Corteo, which means "procession" in Italian, is a joyful procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show combines the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to immerse the audience in a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity set in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.
The clown imagines his own funeral in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by silently caring angels. Contrasting the big 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 piece of humanity that we find within each one of us. The music becomes lyrical and playful, leading the Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion provokes reality.


For the first time at Cirque du Soleil, the stage is central in the arena and divides the venue, with each half of the audience facing the other half, providing a unique perspective not only of the show, but also of a performer's view of the audience. An atmosphere never before seen in Cirque du Soleil arena shows. The stage curtains, inspired by the Eiffel Tower, and the hand-painted central curtains give the stage a grandiose air, setting the tone for Corteo's poetry.
