Step into the light in 2024 with Cirque du Soleil’s most iconic production Alegria: In a New Light, playing at the Royal Albert Hall for a limited season.
Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, this all-time classic has been reimagined for a new generation to fall in love with. It will whisk audiences away to a mystical world sprinkled with visual poetry and acrobatic extravagance.
Featuring brand new stage direction, acrobatic acts, costume and makeup designs, set and musical arrangements, Alegría: In a New Light captures the essence of the 1994 Cirque du Soleil classic in an exciting, entirely-redesigned production.
This show is pure Cirque, with jaw-dropping acrobatics and heartwarming comedy skits intertwined in an immersive, yet surreal visual universe.
The Grammy-nominated soundtrack of Alegría is the most popular Cirque du Soleil album to date, with memorable songs that have touched a generation.
The live musicians and singers revisit the original score with modern arrangements that elevate the emotional impact of the performance.
Alegría: In a New Light introduces a unique Flying Trapeze act with 10 artists performing somersaults in the air way above the audience – a first at the Royal Albert Hall. With two sets of trapezes swinging side-by-side, the Flying Trapeze act is a succession of unbelievable stunts performed by daring flyers who leap from trapeze bars to reach for the arms of mighty catchers hanging from their knees.
"A touching, immersive experience filled with a joyous magical feeling – a quintessential Cirque du Soleil spectacle suitable for all the family."
From fire knife dancing to bouncing off hidden trampoline tracks, this show features an international cast of 62 circus artists and gymnasts with a diverse skillset that is sure to inspire the entire family.
Breaking the fourth wall with their show-stopping performance, the clowns will steal the audience’s heart through showmanship and pure creativity.
