Acclaimed circus arts group Cirque du Soleil presents Alegria, one of its longest running hits. Since its debut in 1994, it has been seen by an estimated 10 million people. The Spanish word for "joy," Alegria takes place in a sensuous, dark and moody world where the struggle for freedom is a constant battle. Using abstract theatrical archetypes personified in dream-like forms, the show delves into this dark underworld, bringing light and song into the darkest parts of our humanity. Exploring age-old themes of power, youth, aging, change and freedom, the show features an acclaimed score and Cirque du Soleil's characteristic, visually stunning costuming and stunts.
