Cirque du Soleil presents Algeria is an acrobatically delightful show about the virility of youth and the handing off of powers from the old to the new. A statement on social transformation is transfixed by the wonder, grace and beauty that have come to be a signature of Cirque du Soleil shows. Algeria is the most popular touring productions of Cirque du Soleil that has been in over 65 cities around the world since 1994.
Originally the show was a touring big top show, but in 2009 during the North American tour, the show was converted to an arena format. Algeria comes from the Spanish world for joy. The show is an operatic introspection of the struggle for power and the invigorating energy of the youth.
