Experience an iconic fan favorite reimagined in a new light. Following the success of Amaluna in 2020, Cirque du Soleil has announced its return to Sacramento with its internationally-acclaimed production, Alegría. From July 28 to Aug. 28, audiences are invited under the Big Top at Sutter Health Park, 400 Ballpark Drive, West Sacramento to experience the pure theatrical magic of Alegría—an entirely redesigned fan favorite.
Undeniably the most iconic Cirque du Soleil production, Alegría is an all-time classic reimagined for a new generation to fall in love with. An uplifting immersive experience, Alegría whisks audiences away to a mystical world sprinkled with visual poetry and acrobatic extravagance.
At the heart of a once-glorious kingdom that has lost its king, Alegría witnesses the power struggle at play between the old order and a new movement yearning for hope and renewal.
With its unforgettable soundtrack, exciting acrobatics, surreal costume designs, vibrant sets, and playful humor, Alegría joyfully touches the soul and lives up to its global reputation of quintessential Cirque du Soleil spectacle.
Alegría (‘joy’ in Spanish) first premiered in 1994 and has since become one of the most beloved Cirque du Soleil shows, mesmerizing over 14 million spectators in 255 cities across 40 countries in over 19 years of touring. Its Grammy Award-nominated soundtrack—including the iconic title track ‘Alegría’—is still the most purchased and streamed Cirque du Soleil album to date.
In 2019, in celebration of its 25th anniversary, Alegría was restaged under the Big Top in a whole new light, ensuring that all its components—stage direction, music, acrobatics, sets, costumes, lighting, and makeup designs—would be as inspiring for today’s audiences as they were at the time of the original creation. Reenergized by a cast of 53 acrobats, clowns, musicians, and singers, Alegría remains timeless and imbued with a joyous magical feeling.
