Six grandchildren fidgeting in their seats in the Gods, suddenly transfixed by the action on the stage and held there in frozen in awe by the terrifying, death defying, tumbling, flying, balancing and whirling acrobats, interspersed with laughter at the antics of the clowns, amidst the soaring music. Wow! Wow! Wow! And the nine adults were equally ecstatically applauding, cheering and gasping. Such a rich experience carried away in our memories to talk about whenever we meet.

What an amazing show! This is the 3rd one I have seen now and each one just blows you away and never fails to disapoit. Puts you on a roller coaster of emotion, be it laughing at the jokes or clench at the tricks. Couldn't recommend this show enough. Truly talented hard working people who provide outstanding shows.

I’ve been trying to see Cirque du Soleil for a long time but could never quite get there, Up to now ! I thought my high expectations would diminish the enjoyment but I’m delighted to be so wrong. So entertaining, so talented, elite athletes combined with circus, comedy and a nice story. Strongly recommend for all the family.

Yet again the Cirque Du Soleil did not disappoint. This is our second time of seeing Alegria, the first time being over 20 years ago!! The show was completely different and we loved it all over again.
