We are huge Cirque Du Soleil fans and try to catch all the shows that come to Houston. Even when we head to Vegas, we never miss an opportunity to attend a show or two. And that holds true when they bring a little Cirque Du Soleil to town! We are always there, front and center, witnessing some of the best acts to ever grace a stage.

This time around the show is called Corteo! It’s jammed packed with a variety of Baroque Circus Acts, excitement, and fun. But unlike other Cirque Du Soleil shows that have taken place under a huge circus tent, Corteo has been transformed from a Big Top show to an arena show and will be visiting Houston at the Toyota Center from March 8-11, 2018. It’s been over 10 years since Corteo has been to Houston and we are overly excited about it!

Because we know you are just as excited as we are, you can use our promo code (CORTEO10) to save $10 on select tickets. Tickets can be purchased here.

About the Show

Corteo, which means “cortege” in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth. Check out the trailer for the show below…

    I have been to a few cirque shows but I am looking forward to seeing what type of story this act brings out. Each performance has a theme and I love seeing what they are about!

    I love Cirque de Soleil. Seen it in Vegas years ago. Thanks for working out the discount! I’ll likely be out of town for this one, but if in town, will definitely go. If so, I’ll buy you guys a drink. Good job with the blog!
