WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S RE-IMAGINED ALEGRIA

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S RE-IMAGINED ALEGRIA

If you love Cirque de Soleil, you will undoubtedly LOVE Alegria!

If you love magic and beautiful story telling that would capture your heart and imagination, then do not dare miss the re-imagined show beloved the world over.

We’re SO thrilled to have been part of Cirque du Soleil’s grandest celebration as it unveiled the first three acts of their revival of iconic production Alegría.

And what a fitting grand premiere it was!

A TRULY SPECTACULAR RED CARPET GRAND PREMIERE FOR ALEGRIA IN VIEUX-PORT MONTREAL

We joined stars, celebrities, government officials, artists, media, bloggers, influencers and the Minister of Tourism, Official Languages & La Francophonie, Honourable Melanie Joly, as we walked the red carpet at #CirqueduSoleil’s Alegria Premiere in Montreal.

We had such a fabulous time at the Cirque du Soleil Alegria Grande Premiere and you can see tons of photos and videos here, here and here. We were also in the coverage video by Impact Montreal and you can see it here!

Presented by Sunlifeca Global Investments, the show is performed under a blue-and-white Big Top at the Vieux-Port de Montreal from April 12, Zibi Canada in Gatineau from August 1, and at Ontario Place in Toronto from September 12.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ALEGRIA

First presented in April 1994, the return of Alegría is destined to change the history of the company. This widely loved show won over more than 14 million spectators in 19 years of touring and it is destined to win over millions more. ♥

Adored by fans around the world, the iconic Alegria is reinterpreted in a renewed version to share its timeless story once more.

In 2019, in time for its 25th anniversary, Cirque du Soleil reinterprets and re-energises Alegría for today’s audiences.  Cirque updated the show’s acrobatics, visual design and new musical arrangements and the result is spell-binding.

At the heart of the story is a tale as old as time.

Change is the only thing that is constant in this world and change is what leads an emerging movement that strives to shake the status quo.

In the classic narrative about the struggle of old versus new, Algeria aims to instil hope and renewal, light and harmony that will lead to a brighter and more inspiring tomorrow.

In short, Alegría will lift your spirit and leave you with joy.

THE RE-IMAGINED CLASSIC ALEGRIA THRILLED FANS OLD AND NEW IN MONTREAL

Appropriately “re-launched” in Montreal, Alegria opened to a roaring success to its home province in Quebec.

Hundreds of Montreal and Quebec’s who’s who descended to the Vieux-Port Montreal to witness the reincarnation of Alegria, the spectacle started even before the show began.

With a lavish red carpet and a posh cirque-themed fete thrown in for good measure, the grand premiere of Alegria in Montreal was a smashing success.

A TRULY SPECTACULAR RED CARPET GRAND PREMIERE FOR ALEGRIA IN VIEUX-PORT MONTREAL

A production destined to change the history of the company, Cirque du Soleil first presented Alegría in April 1994, launching an emblematic show that was to win over more than 14 million spectators in 19 years of touring.

In 2019, in conjunction with its 25th anniversary, Cirque du Soleil reinterprets Alegría through today’s creative lens, including updated acrobatics and visual design, as well as new musical arrangements.

Based on feedback we heard IRL [In Real Life, (ICYMI: In case you missed it!)] and online, the reviews were indeed beyond spectacle naming Alegria as one of the most loved Cirque du Soleil show – EVER.

This does not come as a surprise as not only was the visual effects breath taking and the stunts and performances mind boggling, the storyline itself was, compared to other Cirque du Soleil shows, humanizing and heartwarming.

It had both heart and soul and it was an epic ride from start to finish.

 

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL TO SHOWCASE ALEGRIA IN 3 CANADIAN CITIES

Come August, the show will make its way to the nation’s capital.

With less than a month left, you can catch Alegria at the Zibi Site in Gatineau and we know fans in the region just can’t wait.

Same site where VOLTA was held a couple years ago, the big tent will once again be hoisted at the ZIBI Site in Gatineau.

Same site where we had the added special privilege of meeting Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau and his family.

Guys! Let me share one of the coolest moments we've had this year! And you know 2017 is HUGE for #Canada! 🇨🇦 *** We had the opportunity to get up close again with our Prime Minister and his family! Let me tell you where – @cirquedusoleil's #VOLTA! *** But before that… just want to remind you: You got 1 night and 3 days left you guys! *** So did you know… the Prime Minister @justinpjtrudeau and the first family: Madame @sophiegregoiretrudeau (whom we've met before at the @dreamgirlfilm premiere in #Ottawa's @mayfairtheatre!) and Xavier went to see VOLTA by #CirqueduSoleil? 🇨🇦🇨🇦 *** We think you should too! We love #VOLTA by Cirque du Soleil and we think you will too! Go see it! 😊 *** It's only here @zibi Big Top until #Sunday, August 27th and they pack their bags for #Toronto! For your your SNEAK PEEK: VOLTA BY CIRQUE DU SOLEIL, check out our #20YS @facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/TwentyYorkStreet/posts/1596707740348545! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦 P.s. I LOVE Sophie's top! Wondering where it's from? 😊

Accompanied by Canada’s first lady (though they don’t really Prime Minister’s wives First Lady in Canada) Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, first born Xavier and a gaggle of body guards and secret service, Justin Trudeau, was, as always, cordial and charming.

Though we’ve met Sophie and his Mum, former ‘first lady’ Margaret Trudeau many times, Volta gave us the loveliest of opportunity to meet the Prime Minister up close and personal.

Let’s cross our fingers that they will, once again, make an appearance at the red carpet for the Algeria Zibi Canada premiere in Gatineau.

Standing on an unceded Algonquin, Anishinabek territory, Alegria Gatineau in Zibi Canada couldn’t have picked a better venue as it is strategically placed as it borders Ontario and Quebec in a piece of land that connects Ottawa and Gatineau together.

Surely, the show will be very well received.

With its signature songs, acrobatics and archetypal characters that have helped define the Cirque du Soleil aesthetic, Alegría is the reincarnation of a classic, reinterpreted for the age, and rekindled to inspire fans — both old .

We absolutely cannot wait for the premiere of the Ottawa premiere on August 8th!
