Members of Cirque du Soleil are limbering up to bring the production Alegría to UK arenas in 2013.

It will be performed at the Capital FM Arena Nottingham from November 6-10 and tickets are now on sale.

Alegría is a classic Cirque du Soleil production that has received international acclaim and wowed over ten million people worldwide since it premiered in 1994 in Montreal.

Alegría is a Spanish word that means happiness, joy and jubilation and features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from 17 countries and showcases breath-taking acrobatics.

The spectacular production showcases gravity-defying acrobatics which will dazzle and astound audiences of all ages.

Fans will hold their breath as the skill and poise of the world-renowned performers are put to the test with dramatic acrobatics such as the intense and high-energy Aerial High Bars in which daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet above the stage.

In the rhythmic and dangerous Fire-Knife Dance, artists manipulate flaming knives around their bodies, while Power Track showcases a brilliant display of synchronized choreography and tumbling on a trampoline system magically concealed under the stage floor.

In Russian Bars, artists fly through the air and perform spectacular somersaults and mid-air turns, landing on bars perched on the sturdy shoulders of catchers.
