Cirque du Soleil (Solstrom/Midnight Sun)

Preview by Jack Foley

FOUNDED in 1984, Cirque du Soleil™ has been thrilling audiences around the world for the last 20 years with its jaw dropping acrobatics and breathtaking shows.

Having performed to over 50 million people during this period Cirque du Soleil is quite literally a phenomenon whose fame stretches from city to city, continent to continent.

To mark the revival of an old favourite, Alegría™ at the Royal Albert Hall in London from January 5, 2006, Sony Pictures is giving fans the opportunity to enjoy their amazing shows, Midnight Sun and Solstrom on DVD, allowing you to experience the magic of Cirque du Soleil™ in your own home.

Celebrating Cirque du Soleil’s 20th Anniversary Solstrom is a hybrid 13 episode television series that draws inspiration from film, situation comedy, burlesque theatre, circus acts and Cirque du Soleil’s live shows.

Midnight Sun

While Midnight Sun is a combination of music and circus. It was filmed at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2004, a one night only special event watched by thousands of spectators.

Both are available to buy from December 26, providing the perfect treat for fans of Cirque du Soleil’s magic all over the world.

Alegría, meanwhile, creates a classic, baroque and gently poetic setting, sparkled with unique aerial acts, the one and only “fast-track”, clown sequences created by the famed Slava™ and totally unforgettable music score.

Inspired by the early years of Cirque du Soleil, Alegría holds a special place in the heart of Cirque fans.
