Cirque du Soleil returns to Oklahoma City in February | Culture & Leisure

OKLAHOMA CITY Circus of the Sun will return to the Paycom Center in Oklahoma City. From Thursday to Sunday February 9 to 12, 2023 with poetic and family production, Corteo.

According to the press release, “The story dives into the mind of a clown contemplating his own funeral. Rather than being sad, it’s a joyous affair showcasing strength, fragility, wisdom and the kindness of the clown, illustrating the part of humanity in each of us.

The public will be charmed by the captivating atmosphere of the carnival and the staging. A first for sun circus, the scene is centered in the arena, dividing the audience in two as they face each other.

Well-known characteristics of Circus of the sun shows include aerial acrobatics, the Cyr wheel, juggling and more.

Corteo, which means procession in Italian, is a joyful procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show combines the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to immerse the audience in a theatrical universe of fun, comedy and spontaneity located in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.
