Synopsis by Tracie Cooper

Performed by the acrobats of Cirque du Soleil, this story is part ballet, part daring physical feats, and part fairy tale. A far cry from the dialogue-free circus performances Cirque du Soleil is known for, Alegria chronicles the fate of a small boy who has been forced into slavery. Eventually, he learns order to free himself and the other children, he must defeat a dragon. The question is whether or not the dragon is of the fire-breathing variety or an equally tough but decidedly more philosophical inner dragon.
