I have had a long-time love affair with Cirque du Soleil.

As children, my sister Lindsay and I used to watch it on tv any time we stumbled upon it, and in college I danced to a beautiful piece of music from the Cirque show Mystere. But the real love began in 2000. New Years Day of 2000 to be exact, when my mom & dad got us all tickets to see Alegria at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi.

I've seen many other Cirque shows since - Dralion, Varekai, O, Ka, Zumanity - but something about Alegria has always stuck with me. Maybe because it was my first. But the artistry, costumes & makeup are just unbelievable. And the music (which is all live, by the way) is just beautifully haunting.

That's why I was so excited to hear that Alegria was coming near us - ten years later, I got to bring my daughter to the very same show that I first fell in love with. And she loved it too. As we walked to the car she said, "Mommy, I want to see that show again!"

Indeed, we will. And I can't wait!
