Cirque Du Soleil Corteo

CorteoCirque Du Soleil’s Corteo, inspired by The Grand Parade: Portrait of the Artist as Clown, follows a clown that watches his own funeral take place in a carnival-like atmosphere. It’s a fast-paced and jaw-dropping piece that is sure to leave you feeling thrilled. Running now through Sunday, this show is a must-see.

Don’t miss the show that the Seattle Post describes as a “glorious amalgam of the earthy and the transporting, with a circle-of-life spin.”
