The return of Alegría
A production destined to change the history of the company, Cirque du Soleil first presented Alegría in April 1994, launching an emblematic show that was to win over more than 14 million spectators in 19 years of touring. In 2019, in conjunction with its 25th anniversary, Cirque du Soleil reinterprets Alegría through today’s creative lens, including updated acrobatics and visual design, as well as new musical arrangements.
With its signature songs, acrobatics and archetypal characters that have helped define the Cirque du Soleil aesthetic, Alegría is the reincarnation of a classic, reinterpreted for the age, and rekindled to inspire fans—devoted and new alike.
