Enjoy Cirque du Soleil, more events this Wednesday
1. Cirque du Soleil: Corteo
7:30 p.m. Feb. 20-24. $59-$130. HEB Center at Cedar Park, 2100 Avenue of the Stars, Cedar Park. cirquedusoleil.com/corteo.
Cirque du Soleil has created a new production that is sure to wow us with the group's usual breathtaking circus artistry. In "Corteo," the clown Mauro has passed, but his spirit hasn't left — and the funeral is a celebration with laughter and exuberance. Watch as Cirque du Soleil performers dance suspended from a grand chandelier, gambol and cavort on oversize beds and catapult themselves into triple somersaults.

7 p.m. Feb. 20. $125. Eberly, 615 S. Lamar Blvd. eberly.ticketleap.com/awceberly/.
The second annual dinner celebrates female trailblazers in the culinary scene, with each participating chef — such as Sarah Heard of Foreign & Domestic and Bonnie Savage of Olamaie — creating a dish that honors a woman who has made a significant contribution to the world of food. There will be a reception in the historic Cedar Tavern and a silent auction in the Eberly study before the four-course dinner in the main dining room, paired with wine and cocktails.
