Thur., 1/10-Sun., 1/13 Cirque du Soleil Corteo @ Little Caesars Arena THEATER When Smokey Robinson and the Miracles sang the words “Ain’t too much sadder than the tears of a clown,” back in 1967, it wasn’t in reference to Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo — the avant-garde acrobatic production centered around a clown funeral. More than fifty acrobats, musicians, singers, and actors bring Corteo to heavenly heights as the story of a clown who imagines his own funeral against the backdrop of a carnival unfolding. Corteo juggles the light and dark by questioning — and accepting — one’s own mortality through simple and surrealist staging, with oversized beds, chandeliers, and hand-painted curtains inspired by the Eiffel Tower.
