It will play at the Dunkin Donuts Arena in Providence, Rhode island (July 2-5), the Verizon Wireless Center in Manchester, New Hampshire (July 2-8) and the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey (July 15-19).

Alegría, which first debuted in 1994, features an international cast of 55 performers and musicians from 17 countries and showcases breathtaking acrobatics. Acts include the Synchro Trapez; the high-speed, high-energy Aerial High Bars in which daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet above the stage; and Power Track, a brilliant display of synchronized choreography and tumbling on a trampoline system hidden under the stage.
