4/7: Cirque du Soleil’s Alegría at Wolstein

Posted By on Thu, Apr 1, 2010 at 4:48 PM

Since debuting in Quebec in 1980, Cirque du Soleil’s artistic melding of the human-performance aspects of the circus, gymnastics, dance, music and evocative sets has attracted millions of patrons to its two dozen-plus shows. They’ve also influenced the presentations of dance ensembles, theaters and pop-music performers. Alegría, one of the group’s darker and more foreboding productions, aims to be thought-provoking as well as spectacular. Alegría debuted in 1990 and is now touring in a revamped edition that hits the Wolstein Center (2000 Prospect Ave., 216.687.9292) for eight performances, starting at 7:30 tonight. It runs through April 11. Tickets range from $28-$95, available at or by calling 800.745.3000. — Anastasia Pantsios
