Cirque du Soleil’s critically acclaimed production “Alegría” will perform at the Taco Bell Arena from Nov. 4-7 for seven performances only. Check for show times.

Tickets are available at or by calling 426-1766.

“Alegría” is a Cirque du Soleil classic that has entertained more than 10 million people worldwide since its premiere in Montreal in 1994. In May 2009, “Alegría” embarked on a new journey, performing the same mesmerizing production in arenas throughout North America.

“Alegría” is a Spanish word that means happiness, joy and jubilation. The show features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from 17 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.
