Blew me away
29 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Alegria live in Biloxi Mississippi and was blown away. The music is excellent. The total experience was astounding. I've seen it many more times on TV. If there is a the story in there it's lost on me. I enjoy the stunning sights and sounds and innovative makeup and lighting. There are three main solo acts. The girl twirling the metal rings was beautiful. The guy with the fire batons was exciting. The high point of the show is the contortionist Ulzibayar Chimed. Miss Chimed has taken the art of the contortionist out of the sideshow and raised it up to the level of an exquisite dance. After ten years she is one of the few performers from the original production who are still with the show.
