When it comes to theatrical experiences, Montréal’s Cirque du Soleil is responsible for unparalleled mind-blowing spectacles that have captured imaginations worldwide. And this summer, they’re bringing back one of their biggest successes with the revival of Alegría – complete with unbeatable corporate offers that no group of attendees will ever forget.

An indelible corporate experience

The revisited Alegría makes for an unforgettable off-site excursion, teambuilding activity or the perfect incentive to build motivation. Cirque du Soleil has put together two unbeatable corporate experiences sure to leave attendees breathless. Featuring Premium seating, VIP Suite access, a cocktail reception and delicious hors d'oeuvres, the Mastercard VIP Experience will make anyone feel like visiting royalty – there’s even a dedicated private entrance! The EPIC Experience delivers an unforgettable full-day program with Conversations and Workshops with Cirque du Soleil's experts, in addition to the Backstage Tour, Artist Encounter and complete Mastercard VIP Experience. Both also offer a uniquely Montréal experience that’s sure to impress – and leave a lasting impression on your guests, attendees and team.

A transformative smash success

Launched in 1994, Alegría remains one Cirque du Soleil’s most iconic productions, featuring acrobatics, songs and visual artistry that have helped define the company’s aesthetic. By the time the show first retired in 2013, it had been performed over 5,000 times in 255 cities worldwide to over 14 million spectators. For its 2019 revival, Alegría is reinterpreted through today’s creative lens to ensure it as inspiring as it was 25 years ago, and returns where everything began under Cirque du Soleil’s Big Top in Old Montréal.

The circus reimagined

Since its founding in Baie-St-Paul in 1984 by two street performers Guy Lailiberté and Gilles Ste-Croix, Cirque du Soleil has expanded to both touring and permanent productions in nearly 300 cities on every continent (except Antarctica, but if Cirque du Soleil teaches us anything, it’s that where there’s a will there’s a way). In 2019, the entertainment group will present a total of 21 touring and resident productions, in addition to an array of short-term special events and projects at the four corners of the planet.
