The superhero of the circus world — and the planet’s largest theatrical producer — Cirque du Soleil uses its powers for good. Cirque dispensed with the cruel animal acts that have marred many circuses, and introduced a more modern template — a theatrical approach featuring storylines that promote circus styles from around the world. The current show, Corteo, is an Italian celebration of the circle of life. It’s artsy, elegant, inclusive and cruelty free.
