Competition Time on Classic Drive

Tune in to Classic Drive this week for your chance to win a family pass for 4 people to see Corteo by Cirque du Soleil in the 3Arena in July 2020. Lorcan will be giving away 1 pass per day so listen closely for his question and text your answer to 51554. Good luck!

Corteo, the most enchanting Cirque du Soleil arena production is now touring in Europe. The show will visit 3Arena from Wednesday 8th July for a limited run of seven performances.  This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal under the Big Top in April 2005. Since then and including its transformation into an arena show in 2018, the show has amazed audiences of over 9 million people, in 20 countries, on 4 continents.

Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.
