5.0 out of 5 stars Alegria 26 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
Having seen this show many times now, it of course was not long before I had to buy this CD. It contains all the music from the show and includes the wonderful "Mirko" and "Jeux des Enfants", music which should brighten up any dull moment. In case you hadnt guessed, Alegria actually means "Joy", which gives away what the music on this CD is all about. I have a feeling most of these songs are in Spanish, although I could be wrong. However, you dont need to know any Spanish to enjoy this music. If you like this CD, I thoroughly recommend "Saltimbanco", which is just as much fun, if not more fun, than Alegria.

Buy now for circus fun!

Alegria was the first Cirque Du Soleil show that I have seen in DVD and became a fan ever since. The music is taken from the show and it is simply amazing! Buy without hesitation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Cirque listening 4 Jan 2012
By Brooky
Format:Audio CD
Beautiful music and and passionate vocals. Such a good album (and show). Definitely worth buying. This is one of the older shows of Cirque but it's one of the best. René Dupéré is still my favourite composer of Cirque music.

Probably half the success of Cirque du Soleil is it's music. So many different tunes carry the show forward successfully.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you only buy one Cirque soundtrack, buy this one! 22 Oct 2010
By Amanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
traditional to new age, Alegria injects drama and passion into every note.

Alegria was composed by Rene Dupere, who has written other Cirque scores. Each song carries the beauty and drama of the world of Alegria, where the old and the new collide in a castle inhabited by strange creatures. The music is led by soprano Francesca Gagnon, arguably the most talented Cirque singer ever, whose vocal acrobatics never cease to astound with their range, passion and drive to make listeners feel genuine joy. Songs are sung in the signature "Cirquish" as well as Spanish, English and other romance languages with a heavy emphasis on a European flair. Accordion is also really heavy on the soundtrack (which I'm surprised I like so much) along with violin and keyboards.

CD highlights include the acrobatic-feeling "Irna," the dramatic "Icare" and of course, the title song "Alegria," which features English lyrics and always manages to fill me with joy, passion and contentment. While the music was composed in the early 90s, it still stands up to modern sounds while still lending a traditional, but not antiquated, European flavor that reminds listeners of old monarchies and new beginnings.

Easily one of the strongest entries into the Cirque library, Alegria overflows with passion, drama, joy and human redemption. If you only buy one Cirque CD, I suggest you buy this one.
