Another crowd-pleasing touring production from Cirque du Soleil®’s European-style circus without animals, ” Alegría” takes its title from the Spanish word for “joy,” “elation,” and “jubilation” — and it is joy personified in various and sundry jaw-dropping and eyebrow-raising acts.
“A Spanish word for ‘elation,’ ‘joy,’ and ‘jubilation,’ ‘Alegría’ features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from 15 countries. Alegría has a baroque and operatic style with flamboyant costumes, original music performed live and an elaborate set that serves to enhance the astonishing spectacle of athleticism and artistry. The result is an impressive mix of skill, strength, and speed combined with elegant, almost ethereal performances.
