Cirque du Soleil has dazzled and amazed almost 100 million people in 300 cities across five continents since its humble beginnings in Quebec in 1984.
Alegría is a classic Cirque du Soleil production that has received international acclaim and wowed over 10 million people worldwide since it premiered in 1994 in Montreal. Alegría is a Spanish word that means happiness, joy and jubilation and features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from 17 countries and showcases breathtaking acrobatics.
The spectacular 2½ hour production showcases gravity-defying acrobatics which will dazzle and astound audiences of all ages. Fans will hold their breath as the skill and poise of the world-renowned performers are put to the test with dramatic acrobatics such as the intense and high-energy Aerial High Bars in which daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet above the stage.
In the rhythmic and dangerous Fire-Knife Dance, artists manipulate flaming knives around their bodies, while Power Track showcases a brilliant display of synchronized choreography and tumbling on a trampoline system magically concealed under the stage floor. In Russian Bars, artists fly through the air and perform spectacular somersaults and mid-air turns, landing on bars perched on the sturdy shoulders of catchers.

Saturday the 7th of April was the first time I had ever seen a show by
Ciruque du Soleil and it left me amazed. I am so excited to see the next
show! The clowns were hilarious and the whole crew were perfect in
everything they did. If you are thinking about going, do it! You definitely
wont regret it, there were all types of ages there too, there was
something for everyone from dancers, singers, acrobats, clowns,
everything! I have never seen something as amazing as this. They are
the best at what they do and I cant wait to go again!!!
Manchester - MEN Arena
Outstanding from Tony, 10/04/12
If you havent been to one of these performances or you are undecided as to whether you should go then my advice is to take the plunge and just do it! An utterly brilliant show with every extreme of creative visual and dynamic art. Each performer offers their own identity to the show and it is clearly visible that Cirque du Soleil will only hire the very best performers. I have been fortunate enough to watch my first three shows in Las Vegas but having this one so close was equally special.
London - Wemble arena
Great a must see from Bond, 01/08/10
I went with my boyfriend for his birthday and it was great and he really enjoyed it. It is a must see and it would be good for couples and familys. Wemble is easy to get to on the Tube as it drops you out side the door.
