Hey, Cirque du Soleil fans!

Cirque du Soleil set up shop at Atlantic Station under the big tents last winter to present Kooza, a playful, vintage twist on old-school circus fun. The limber Montreal-based performance ensemble returns to Georgia, Augusta actually, Nov. 26-29 with Alegría at the James Brown Arena.

About the show:

Alegría is a Spanish word that means happiness, joy and jubilation. An operatic introspection of the struggle for power and the invigorating energy of youth, Alegría relates the tale of power versus weakness, the king versus his jesters, and age against youth.

A kingdom without a king, Alegría is a world where everyone feels imbued with power —from impish court jester Fleur to the young and vital Bronx, to the aged and aristocratic Birds. Alegría is inhabited by minstrels, rogues, beggars, nobles, children and clowns, the only characters able to adapt to the changing times and the upheaval it brings. In this enigmatic, troubling world of profound changes and uncertainty, despite all the trials and tribulations, there is only one constant: the human spirit remains implacable.

If November seems far off, consider Cavalia, an "equestrian extravaganza" from Cirque's creator at Atlantic Station Oct. 27-Nov. 15. We're intrigued by what's involved in an equestrian extravaganza. Contortionist colts? High-flying fillies?
