Cirque Du Soleil: Alegría – The Return of an Icon
Aug 1 @ 07:30:00 PM – Aug 25 @ 11:59:00 PM

Alegría is the nostalgic story of a monarchy that has lost its king. The Old Birds, who resist change and cling to old values, hover around Mr Fleur, a tricky and power-hungry man who proclaims himself king. Fleur and the Old Birds, with their outdated ideas, struggle to maintain power in a world they no longer understand. On the other hand, the Bronx, the strong and confident next generation, embrace modernity and strive to topple their oppressors to build a flourishing new society. Follow the story of Alegría, a world where the old order is being challenged and replaced by something new and unknown.
