CIRQUE DU SOLEIL | Corteo
d 3.-6. November | VEGA
Corteo, one of the most loved Cirque du Soleil shows, is coming to Denmark.Corteo, is one of Cirque du Soleil's most enchanting performances. The performance is directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca and originally premiered in the Big Top (tent) in Montreal in 2005. Since then, the show has been a huge success and has been seen by more than 9 million people in 19 countries worldwide.Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a clown's performance of a festive parade. The show brings together the passion of acting with the power and energy of acrobatics. The audience is thrown into a theater world full of fun, comedy and spontaneity in a space between heaven and earth.The clown imagines his own funeral, which takes place in the middle of a carnival, while silent and caring angels look on. Envisioning the grand in juxtaposition with the small, the ridiculous versus the tragic, and the magic of the perfect versus the charm of imperfection, the show highlights the strengths and fragility of the clown, as well as his wisdom and kindness-the humanity that lies within U.S. all. The music is lyrical and playful and carries Corteo through a timeless party where illusion teases reality.The design of the stage brings the audience into a theatrical world that has not previously been seen in a Cirque du Soleil performance. The theater carpet is inspired by the Eiffel Tower and other carpets are hand painted to create just the right poetic atmosphere in Corteo.The cast consists of 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all over the world.

13 November | VEGA
Franz Ferdinand paved the way for a new sound within British indie rock, where a sweat-dripping mix of dance floor euphoria, electrifying guitars and an easily accessible lyrical universe came together into a higher unity.When Franz Ferdinand first played the track "Take Me Out" in a rehearsal room, frontman Alex Kapranos jokingly said to his bandmates: "I can almost imagine this being played on the radio." The Scottish alternative rock band went into music with an attitude that most artists can probably recognise: With the feeling of making something that can change the world, but with a fear that no one will give a fuck. "Take Me Out" became much bigger than just a radio hit.The essence of their ground-breaking back catalogue, Franz Ferdinand now pays tribute with the release of Hits to the Heads on 11 March 2022 and an accompanying tour. With immortal numbers such as "Take Me Out", "Walk Away", "Do You Want To" and "No You Girls", the oven is set for a blast of a concert, where 00s nostalgia shines with joy that Franz Ferdinand is still standing strong.Franz Ferdinand comes to VEGA on November 13 with a parade of hits.

You know the music, the drama and the songs, but West Side Story has to be experienced in this magnificent new production.America, I Feel Pretty, Tonight, Maria, Somewhere. The immortal hits from West Side Story can now be experienced in the Opera. Bernstein's musical classic must be experienced once in a lifetime.

His mix of symphonic sounds and the jazzy and Latin American rhythms he heard in clubs and on the streets of his hometown of New York is a brilliant musical fusion.The young Reumert Talent Award-winning musical performer, Søren Torpegaard Lund, is Tony, and the young, Norwegian musical talent, Astrid Giske, can be seen in the role of Maria.The Royal Theater presents more than 30 singing and dancing actors on stage accompanied by the Royal Chapel. The play's in-house director Thomas Bendixen stages a fast-paced, magnificent production, where the dance is largely one with a narrative and dramatic element.West Side Story is sung in Danish.Based on idea by Jerome Robbins | Music by Leonard Bernstein | Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim | Screenplay by Arthur Laurents
