Alegría, which is Spanish for "jubilation," is a classic, touring Cirque du Soleil performance, utilizing arenas' cavernous spaces to embellish the high-flying antics that made the show a hit in the first place. Although the big top is gone, the circus spirit remains in the form of clownism, trapeze routines that frequently transform the artists into motion blurs, synchronized somersaults, and contortionists, just to name a few. Feel as vibrant and alive as Lydia the Tattooed Lady while watching masterful performers flip, flop, bend, and undulate in intricate, glittering costumes, all set to evocative Grammy-nominated music.

A Cirque du Soleil performance is an ideal outing for a family, an invigorating conversation piece for an awkward first date, and an inspirational tableau for neglected tree-deprived gibbons. Although Alegría does not have a concrete narrative, the breathtaking physical displays present a number of themes, including the trickle of power from generation to generation, a sense of youth, and the pulse of fresh-baked life. Characters from fairies and nymphs to fools and aristocrats are set against this Pollock-esque backdrop of ideas, navigated by othered clowns operating outside the passage of time and the social mores that come with earth-bound hours.

Reviews
