A Spanish word for elation, joy and jubilation, Alegría showcases breathtaking acrobatics whose astonishing artistry leaves its audience filled with exactly these emotions. For over two hours, the audience lives through a spectacle of sensational choreography, revolving around feats of awe-inspiring acrobatic skill and set within a fantastic backdrop, both bizarre and imposing at the same time. The imagery surrounding each world-class act is intensified by cascades of light and sound, while the show's 400 costumes items, including wigs and accessories, allow a continual metamorphosis of its troupe of 55 artists from 18 different countries.
The acrobatic skills of Alegría reach previously untouched heights. Its outstanding acts include the gravity-defying Synchronized Trapeze and the intense, energy-charged Russian Bars, that thrust their protagonists ten metres high into the air. The Fire-Knife Dance reveals a magical atmosphere of danger, as its artists tightly weave flaming knives around their bodies. The vibrancy of youth is alive in Power Track, a brilliant display of synchronised choreography on a trampoline system hidden underneath the stage floor. As one spectacular act follows another, Alegría becomes a unique experience that is far more than a show, and completely captivates all ages.
The mission of Cirque du Soleil is to inspire imagination, provoke the senses and evoke the emotions of its spectators – a task achieved by the eclectic mix of acrobatics, music, dance and theatre which Alegría fuses together. The colourful variety of characters and lavish visual settings serve to draw the spectator right into the heart of a fantastic dream world.
