Movie Info

Performed by the acrobats of Cirque du Soleil, this story is part ballet, part daring physical feats, and part fairy tale. A far cry from the dialogue-free circus performances Cirque du Soleil is known for, Alegria chronicles the fate of a small boy who has been forced into slavery. Eventually, he learns order to free himself and the other children, he must defeat a dragon. The question is whether or not the dragon is of the fire-breathing variety or an equally tough but decidedly more philosophical inner dragon.

Audience Reviews for Cirque du Soleil: Alegria

The thing that stands out most about this particular Cirque Du Soleil show is not the stunning acrobatics, but the music and color. I guess that's kind of disappointing in comparison to some of the other productions I've seen, but it was definitely more interesting and flowed better than Corteo or Varekai, so it wasn't a total loss. Not as memorable as some of the other shows I've seen, but certainly not the worst.

Absolutely amazing circus. The acts, the soundtrack, the showmanship, the cinematography of the videos, everything about this is absolutely wonderful. Sometimes the pacing is slightly slow but the highs are so very high that it makes up for any lags in the action.
