    Alegria-An enchanting fable...

    Alegria is an amazing show. It is very enchanting and magical. The singers do an outstanding job with the music and the acrobatics are excellent. Often considered to be Cirque's signature show, Alegria is definately one to have in your collection.

    MAGICAL!!!!

    This is one of the best shows I have seen. The music, acts, costumes.....everthing is great about it. This DVD can also be used for entertaining when you have company or parties. Whenever I have the opportunity to see any Cirque du Soleil show live, I will.

    Awesome show

    One of the best Cirque shows under the big top! The music, the costumes, the acts are all amazing. Especially like the Singer in White's singing. A show not to be missed...it is great on screen and even more amazing live.

    The Best Cirque Show EVER!!!!!

    Alegria is absolutely the best cirque show. I have seen Quidam and Dralion but Alegria is just stunning and it's got more professionality inside it. The acrobats and artists are very skilled unlike Quidam (where some acts are a bit sloppy) and it's got a very strong story and acts so it has more appeals to the audiences. Great music, very artistic and amazing!!!! They came to my city in 2003 but i missed it. T.T i so wish i had seen this in live!!!!!

    Best Cirque Show

    Awsome show. We saw it in Austin a few years ago and it was jaw-dropping. The music is the best of the shows, and the acts are amazing. Just wish it was longer because I get sucked in.

    Enchanting

    One of the most intricate, artful stories on DVD today. Cirque Du Soleil, first created in 1984 has grown and matured over the years. Alegria is an amazing performance of acrobats, contortionists, gymnasts, musicians, singers and so much more blended into one of the most beautiful performances ever made. I highly recommend purchasing this DVD/VHS, it's a great addition to any collection.

    Cirque du soleil proves their art

    This video is great for any fan of Cirque. It allows the viewer to get an added bonus that is not available even if you have seen the real thing on stage. Getting to know the artists and what goes into the show is a real treat. The show is defined for an audience in the big top but the video does an excellent job of keeping with the transformation of going into the world of Alegria. Love it love it love it.
