Aerial Chandeliers – Swinging Into The Cristal => Le Cirque du Soleil, translated to “Circus of the Sun” in the Shakespearian language, the largest theatrical producer in the world, launched “Corteo” in 2012, an extraordinary show offering attendees an unforgettable spectacle mixing gymnastic acrobatics, aerial hoop, dance trapeze, trampoline acts, juggling performances, and particularly known for its aerial chandeliers.
“Corteo” is an Italian word meaning cortège or procession. Partly inspired by a Federico Fellini film, the show follows a clown watching his own funeral taking place.
Slight such as air over 30 feet high
The play focuses on elegance and enchantment. Lights, decor, music, costumes and performances in aerial chandeliers transport you to a universe without frontiers between dream and reality. One of the performances features dancers suspended from a grandiose chandelier. The aerial artists swing from the large, crystal-embellished chandeliers, hanging over 30 feet high with acrobatics that wow the audience.
