(31.07-4.08.2013)

After the great success of Saltimbanco in Poland, Cirque du Soleil, in collaboration with Alter Art, is pleased to announce that the critically-acclaimed production Alegría will perform in GdaƄsk/Sopot at Ergo Arena from from July 31 until August 4, 2013, for seven performances only.

A Spanish word for elation, joy and jubilation, Alegría features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from 15 countries. Alegría has a baroque and operatic style with flamboyant costumes, original music performed live and an elaborate set that serves to enhance the astonishing spectacle of athleticism and artistry. The result is an impressive mix of skill, strength and speed combined with elegant, almost ethereal performances.

Alegría showcases breathtaking acrobatics including the dramatically sensuous Synchro Trapeze and the high-energy Aerial High Bars where daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet above the stage. Imagine two agile performers who bring alive the Mongolian art of contortion and artists manipulating flaming knives around their bodies in the rhythmic and dangerous Fire-Knife Dance. The vibrancy of youth is alive in fast-paced Power Track, a brilliant display of synchronized choreography and tumbling on a trampoline system that is magically revealed under the stage floor. In Russian Bars, artists fly through the air with spectacular somersaults and mid-air twists, landing on 4-inch wide bars perched on the sturdy shoulders of the catchers. Alegría is more than a show . . . it is an exciting and unique experience that will captivate all ages.
