Blu-ray. CIRQUE DU SOLEIL, CORTEO
DIRECTOR: Jocelyn Barbaré
CIRQUE DU SOLEIL
Fans of the fantastic Cirque du Soleil know that a DVD of a performance can only approximate the sensory experience of being there, but "Corteo" nonetheless will hold fans spellbound. The loose thread of theme is of a clown who dreams he's dead, and is at his own funeral--so Fellini-esque processionals of angels, jesters, animals, musicians, cannibals, and other-worldly sprites seem perfectly appropriate. The most breathtaking segments include, as always, the sheer athletic prowess and fearlessness of the acrobats and gymnasts. One early scene shows fairies literally swinging from giant chandeliers--then tossing them about and gyrating within them so that at any minute they seem likely to spin into the audience, "Phantom of the Opera"-style. Other performers take simple hoops and turn them into Olympic-level endurance sport-equipment, by spinning inside, outside, around, and on top of them. Another highlight includes a dream sequence of every kid's fantasy.
