Don’t Miss Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Alegría’ Nov. 4-7

By: Kathleen Tuck   Published 2:34 pm / October 27, 2010

Cirque du Soleil’s acclaimed production “Alegría” will be at Taco Bell Arena for seven performances Nov. 4-7. Visit www.tacobellarena.com for show times.

“Alegría” features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from 15 countries and showcases breathtaking acrobatics. Acts include the Synchro Trapeze and the intense and high-energy Aerial High Bars, in which daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet above the stage. The vibrancy of youth is alive in Power Track, a brilliant display of synchronized choreography and tumbling on a trampoline system hidden 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.
