Cirque du Soleil announced this week that tickets for “Corteo” will go on sale Monday, Dec. 19.

The show, which will take place at Pechanga Arena from Sept. 6 to Sept. 10, tells the story of a clown and brings together a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth. 

The clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by quietly caring angels. 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, kindness, wisdom and fragility of the clown.

In a Cirque du Soleil first, the stage is central in the arena and divides 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 audience.
