Corteo“Corteo” 在意大利語中意思是“隨從”，它是充滿愉悅的隊列，由一個小丑想像的節日流行隊伍。本劇用雜技的活力和豐姿集演員們的熱情於一體，使觀眾沉浸在天地之間的一種神秘空間的歡樂、喜劇和自發的戲劇世界。 小丑把自己的葬禮刻畫在狂歡氣氛中，由天使靜靜地守護著。大小並置，悲劇性的可笑與帶有不完美魅力的完美魔力，本劇突出了小丑的強勁和脆弱，及其智慧和熱情，表達了我們每個人身上都有的人性。抒情與娛樂結合的音樂使 “Corteo” 通篇具有用幻想嘲諷現實的永恆頌揚色彩。
The Clowness is an actress, a veritable grande dame of the stage, who somehow found herself a part of this nutty troupe. Her professionalism and her strength of character allow her to bear the foolishness of her partners, whom she never fails to charm.
死去的小丑 (The Dead clown)
The Dead Clown is the central character of the story, the one whom this fantastic funeral is honouring … but could it all be a dream? A former member of the troupe surrounding him, he dons his costume to perform onstage one last time.
天才小丑 (The Giant Clown)
Although only an amateur opera singer, the Giant Clown imagines himself to be a great artist of worldwide renown. Without doubt, it is with him that the Dead Clown is closest, almost like brothers.
渺小的小丑 (The Little Clown)
A diminutive clown who’s in love with the Clowness, the Little Clown is always ready to play tricks on his associates. Impish and lively, he is both an endearing companion and a force to be reckoned with.
忠诚的吹笛者 (The Loyal Whistler)
The origins of the Loyal Whistler lie in the classic role of “Mr. Loyal”, the ringmaster of traditional circuses. The Loyal Whistler evokes images of a former military man, one who has retrained in the circus arts but never quite lost his former ways. When he starts to whistle, his boundless artistic passion comes to the fore.
For the White Clown, appearances are what matters most. Like the Loyal Whistler, he is an authority figure … at least, he’d like to be. Of all the colourful characters, he admires only the stars and scorns the others. It is the White Clown who opens the door to the magic of the circus for the Dead Clown.
