An Enchanting Fable.
The creators of the world famous Cirque du Soleil bring their enchanting fantasy and amazing talents to this timeless story of love between an impoverished street mime, Frac, and Giulietta, the beautiful young songbird of the circus.
Alegria is the first feature film inspired by Cirque du Soleil, an internationally based performance ensemble that uniquely blends traditional circus arts with the expressive possibilities of theatre, dance and music. Alegria, the film, is far more than the documentation of the live event. Instead, the cinematic medium has been employed to expand and transform the Cirque's dreamlike imagery out of the Big Top and into the real world, introducing a narrative love story enacted by a distinguished international cast.
