CIRQUE DU SOLEIL RETURNS TO THE UK WITH THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ALEGRÍA

Cirque du Soleil is excited to announce that the company is limbering up to bring its awe-inspiring production Alegría to UK arenas in 2013 returning in October to Newcastle at the Metro Radio Arena Thursday 17th – Sunday 20th October 2013.

Alegría is a classic Cirque du Soleil production that has received international acclaim and wowed over 10 million people worldwide since it premiered in 1994 in Montreal. Alegría is a Spanish word that means happiness, joy and jubilation and features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from 17 countries and showcases breathtaking acrobatics.

The spectacular 2½ hour production showcases gravity-defying acrobatics which will dazzle and astound audiences of all ages. Fans will hold their breath as the skill and poise of the world-renowned performers are put to the test with dramatic acrobatics such as the intense and high-energy Aerial High Bars in which daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet above the stage.

In the rhythmic and dangerous Fire-Knife Dance, artists manipulate flaming knives around their bodies, while Power Track showcases a brilliant display of synchronized choreography and tumbling on a trampoline system magically concealed under the stage floor. In Russian Bars, artists fly through the air and perform spectacular somersaults and mid-air turns, landing on bars perched on the sturdy shoulders of catchers.
