Alegría is een stemming, een sfeer. De voorstelling, waarvan de naam in het Spaans 'vreugde' betekent, heeft meerdere thema's. Macht en de overgang van macht in de loop van de tijd, de overgang van oude monarchieën naar moderne democratieën, ouderdom, jeugd. De personages van Alegría geven je een kijkje in hun leven. Het universum wordt gevormd door narren, minstrelen, bedelaars, oude aristocraten en kinderen. Daartussendoor lopen de clowns, die als enige figuren in staat zijn om zich aan het verloop van de tijd en de daarbij behorende sociale veranderingen te onttrekken.
