Cirque du Soleil is coming to Gatineau this summer with the revival of Alegría, one of its most iconic productions. Destined to change the history of the company, Cirque du Soleil first presented Alegría in April 1994, launching an emblematic show that was to win over more than 14 million spectators in over 255 cities in 19 years of touring through the end 2013.
In 2019, Cirque du Soleil reinterprets Alegría through today’s creative lens, including updated acrobatics and visual design, as well as new musical arrangements. Led by an intangible wind of change, the show tells the story of an emerging movement that strives to shake the established order, instilling hope and renewal to bring light to a world in perfect harmony. Alegría energizes the audience with a joyful spirit, allowing them to relive – or discover for the first time – the emotions that left a mark on millions of people.
