What’s on Manchester: Cirque Du Soleil Alegria at Manchester MEN Arena
Wednesday 04th April – Saturday 07th April 2012
Cirque du Soleil, the multi-faceted international creative force, is about to hit the road once again but this time…. in the UK and is taking its critically-acclaimed production Alegría (we could describe it as being a beautifully imagined, fantastical and mesmerizing show, but we say that about EVERY Cirque du Soleil production!) in our arenas for the very first time; visiting Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham in April 2012.
Receiving international acclaim, Alegría is a classic Cirque du Soleil production that has wowed over 10 million people worldwide since it premiered in 1994 in Montreal. Alegría is a Spanish word that means happiness, joy and jubilation (don’t you just love those foreign words that encapsulate a feeling so elegantly?) and features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from 17 countries and showcases breathtaking acrobatics and dance. The whole show will take your breath away… it is amazing!
The spectacular 2½ hour production showcases gravity-defying acrobatics which will dazzle and astound audiences of all ages. Fans will hold their breath as the skill and poise of the world-renowned performers are put to the test with dramatic acrobatics such as the intense and high-energy Aerial High Bars in which daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet above the stage. This is one show that you cant take the whole family to see!
In the rhythmic and dangerous Fire-Knife Dance, artists manipulate flaming knives around their bodies, while Power Track showcases a brilliant display of synchronized choreography and tumbling on a trampoline system magically concealed 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.
Cirque du Soleil has dazzled and amazed almost 100 million people in 300 cities across five continents since its humble beginnings in Quebec in 1984, and its return to the UK in 2012 is set to be one of the entertainment highlights of the year. Cirque du Soleil has visited Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham previously with Delirium in 2007/08, Quidam in 2009 and Saltimbanco in 2010. On those occassions tickets sold out fast, so don’t delay in getting yours booked.
