Great entertainment.
23 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this show. "Alegria" is probably one of the very best Cirque du Soleil has. This is the kind of show that you can watch again and again and find something new every time. The music is great, and I loved the lead singer, Francesca Gagnon; she has a truly amazing voice. There are so many stories being told in this movie, but the main theme is the search for power in a kingdom with no king. The title, "Alegria" means Joy in Spanish and you can be sure to feel that once you watch this show. Also, if you're planning to buy the DVD, check out the Meet the Artists feature and Behind the Scenes. This is a great show for the whole family.
