Alegria by Cirque du Soleil- Official video from YouTube
About the show Alegría
Alegría is a Spanish word that means joy and jubilation. How fitting, for a show that has brought laughter and wonder to over 14 million spectators in more than 250 cities across the globe from 1994 to 2013. In over 5,000 performances, the show’s memorable music, stunning costumes, and entrancing artistry have made Alegría one of Cirque du Soleil’s most beloved shows.
"The gleeful power of youth"
Alegría is a land inhabited by minstrels, rogues, beggars, old aristocrats, innocent children, and a jester who has lost his king. It’s an enigmatic and troubling world, one where clowns are the only characters able to adapt to the changing times and the upheavals they bring. As time’s wheel turns and monarchy gives way to democracy, power changes hands while the human spirit remains steadfast through all the trials, tribulations, and uncertainties it faces. As a rallying cry, Alegría celebrates this vital force of change, where power submits to weakness and youth overcomes conventionality.
