"Alegría in a New Light", Cirque du Soleil, Toronto, ON

I saw Cirque du Soleil's Alegría in a New Light this evening ... it was a work event.  Gord and I had seen it a couple weeks ago.  It's playing not far from us in a tent at Ontario Place.  It's celebrating its 25th anniversary with a revamped version.

Beloved by fans around the world, iconic Alegría is reinterpreted in a renewed version to share its timeless story once more. The classic power struggle of old meets new is reinterpreted for today’s cultural pulse. Led by an intangible wind of change, an emerging movement strives to shake the established order, instilling hope and renewal to bring light to a world in perfect harmony. Alegría energizes the audience with a joyful spirit for a brighter and more inspiring tomorrow.

For an hour before the show, there was a reception with drinks and appies.

Then we went into the tent to watch the show.

There were some photo ops ...

Even though I just saw it a couple weeks ago, I enjoyed this show yet again.  This is the fifth Cirque show I've seen (I've seen eight in total ... I've seen three twice).  Usually I have no idea what the story is about but that doesn't matter because the shows are great.

There is a large cast and there is always something going on.  There are acrobats, clowns, a cross-wheeler, a fire dancer, singers, a  snow storm and more.  This show was amazing and Gord and I both really enjoyed it.  Wow!

The show runs 'til November 24 ... you should check it out!
