Good news for entertainment-loving Torontonians! The internationally renowned acrobatic performance group, Cirque du Soleil, is going to be setting up shop under the Big Top at Ontario Place this coming fall. In honour of its 25th anniversary, you’ll have the chance to see Cirque du Soleil’s iconic Alegría show in all its magical, whimsical, and spectacular glory – with a new twist.
This timeless story of resilience and hope is being reinvented for the first time since its debut in 1994, making this a must-see show for everyone – even those who have already seen the original show in the past.
What can you expect in terms of new features? Alegría is being revisited through the lens of today’s modern world, with changes to costume and set design to reflect contemporary life. You can also look forward to new musical arrangements that have been added to their classic, beloved score (their theme song was even nominated for a Grammy in 1995!), as well as a renewed and extended acrobatic vocabulary.
Consider this reinvention of Alegría an amplified version of the original, promising to sweep you up into their mystical world and enchant you just as much as they have in the past. Sit back and enjoy the show’s most famous songs and acrobatic routines, set in a transformative space and performed by your favourite characters, whose artistry will dazzle all spectators.
