A new Alegria
Alegria was first performed by Cirque du Soleil in 1994 and has since become one of its most beloved shows by audiences, captivating more than 14 million spectators in 255 cities in 40 countries. Alegria 2024 recaptures that excitement, but adapts the show to the new times. To commemorate its 25th anniversary, "Alegria" has been re-staged from a renewed perspective, ensuring that all of its elements remain just as inspiring to audiences today as they were in its original creation. The iconic score of "Alegría", composed by five musicians and two singers, has been revised. New arrangements have fused electronic and rock sounds with acoustic and orchestral elements, including brass, strings and accordion notes, all in perfect harmony with the amazing acrobatics.
