What's the story behind Cirque du Soleil Alegria?
Alegria is a touring production first created in 1994 by the director Franco Dragone and the circus’s director of creation Gilles Ste-Croix. Named after the Spanish word for ‘joy’, it is utterly joyous. Premiering at Montreal in 1994, the show has been on stage at least 5000 times since then. Seen by over 14 million spectators in more than 250 cities around the world, it’s due in the West End for a long-awaited season.

Cirque du Soleil - Circus of the Sun in English – is a Canadian entertainment company, now the world’s biggest contemporary circus producer. Based in the centre of Saint-Michel, it was founded back in 1984 by the ex-street performers Guy Laliberté and Gilles Ste-Croix. The first official production Le Grand Tour du Cirque du Soleil, in 1984, proved a huge success, leading to the company being transformed into an actual circus. The famous theatrical, character-driven approach they take won hearts and minds, and to this day it remains the world’s best-loved and best-known contemporary circus.
