Corteo might be a staging of both sides of the theatrical mask -- one delighted, the other inconsolable. As I watched Valentyna Paylevanyan, one of the show's diminutive clowns, wafting in the breeze as audience members bounced her tiny frame -- attached to six helium-filled balloons -- up and down like a beach ball, all I could think about was how life rarely turns out quite the way you expect it to. My planned anti-Cirque diatribe was in tatters. Under the circumstances, there was only one course of action -- to laugh, give the little lady with the balloons a gentle shove, and write this review. I'll freely admit it: Cirque du Soleil made a clown of me.
