Cirque du Soleil: Alegría
The tight-walking, trapeze-swinging legendary circus group, Cirque du Soleil, will come flying into Palau Sant Jordi this month, promising a sensory delight full of adventure and fun as they present Alegría—meaning “joy” in Spanish—a baroque ode to the energy, grace and power of youth.
Originally created for their tenth anniversary in 1994, Alegría is one of the most popular touring shows in Cirque du Soleil´s repertoire—it has been performed over 5,000 times and seen by over 10 million spectators in more than 65 cities around the world. Themes of the performance include power, evolution of democracy, old age and youth, and like all Cirque du Soleil´s productions, it combines circus styles from around the world with live music and intricate costume and stage designs.
