SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Following the success of Amaluna in 2020, Cirque du Soleil is excited to announce its return to Sacramento with its internationally-acclaimed production Alegría. From July 28 to August 28, audiences are invited under the Big Top at Sutter Health Park (400 Ballpark Dr.) to experience the pure theatrical magic of Alegría—an entirely redesigned fan favorite. 

Undeniably the most iconic Cirque du Soleil production, Alegría is an all-time “classic” reimagined for a new generation to fall in love with. An uplifting immersive experience, Alegría whisks audiences away to a mystical world sprinkled with visual poetry and acrobatic extravagance. 

At the heart of a once-glorious kingdom that has lost its king, Alegría witnesses the power struggle at play between the old order and a new movement yearning for hope and renewal.

With its unforgettable soundtrack, exciting acrobatics, surreal costume designs, vibrant sets, and playful humor, Alegría joyfully touches the soul and lives up to its global reputation of quintessential Cirque du Soleil spectacle.

In A New Light

Alegría (‘joy’ in Spanish) first premiered in 1994 and has since become one of the most beloved Cirque du Soleil shows, mesmerizing over 14 million spectators in 255 cities across 40 countries in over 19 years of touring. Its Grammy Award-nominated soundtrack—including the iconic title track ‘Alegría’—is still the most purchased and streamed Cirque du Soleil album to date.

In 2019, in celebration of its 25th anniversary, Alegría was restaged under the Big Top in a whole new light, ensuring that all its components—stage direction, music, acrobatics, sets, costumes, lighting, and makeup designs—would be as inspiring for today’s audiences as they were at the time of the original creation. Reenergized by a cast of 53 acrobats, clowns, musicians, and singers, Alegría remains timeless and imbued with a joyous magical feeling. 

The revival of Alegría is the 44th Cirque du Soleil original production since 1984, and its 19th presented under the Big Top.

Cirque du Soleil wishes to thank SAP, its official partner, and Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte, the official Premiere partner of Alegría.
