Cirque Du Soleil is headed to Allentown this weekend to put on six performances of the company’s famous ‘Corteo’ showcase. This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal in April 2005 and has traveled around the globe and country numerous times before returning to Allentown this spring. 

As a release notes, in a Cirque du Soleil first, the stage will be central in the arena and it will divide the venue with each half of the audience facing the other half, giving a unique perspective not only of the show, but also a performer’s eye view of the escapade. The showcase, which centers on a clown’s imaginative and festive parade will feature acrobats, comedy and other theatrical elements.
