Personally, I can’t get enough Cirque du Soleil. I’ve seen them in Las Vegas and more than once here in the Twin Cities. It’s always a breathtaking sight! They’re coming to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul this July, and right now during Cirque Week, June 15 – 26, you can save up to $25 per ticket!
Tickets are as low as $59 during this promotion and it’s only good through June 26th so hurry!
There are discounts available from Groupon and Goldstar as well for a discounted price.
About the show:
Surreal moments, remarkable acrobatic prowess, fantasy, theater and poetry, Corteo, which means “cortege” in Italian, is a joyous procession imagined by a clown. In a carnival atmosphere, the clown pictures his own funeral taking place, watched over by quietly caring angels. Combining acrobatic feats, comedy and acting, the show plunges spectators into a theatrical world of fun and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth. Juxtaposing the large 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 share of humanity within each of us. The music sometimes turns lyrical, sometimes playful, carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.
Shows are: Thursday, July 13th – Sunday, July 16th
This is the first time Cirque du Soleil has performed in the Twin Cities since 2018.
