If you haven't already scored your tickets to Cirque du Soleil's 'Alegria,' consider this your official reminder.
Alegría is one of Cirque du Soleil's most popular touring shows. Since its premiere in April 1994, it has been performed over 5,000 times and seen by over ten million spectators in more than 65 cities around the world.
Here's how Cirque du Soliel describes the show:
Alegría is a mood, a state of mind. The themes of the show, whose name means "jubilation" in Spanish, are many. Power and the handing down of power over time, the evolution from ancient monarchies to modern democracies, old age, youth—it is against this backdrop that the characters of Alegría play out their lives. Kings' fools, minstrels, beggars, old aristocrats, and children make up its universe, along with the clowns, who alone are able to resist the passing of time and the social transformations that accompany it.
Flowy language aside, speaking from past experience, the show is incredible.
Alegría is being performed March 17 - 20 at the North Charleston Coliseum; get your tickets here.
