Cirque du Soleil 'Alegria' Opening Night Party

Event Type:entertainment & premieres
Venue:Horden Pavilion, The Entertainment Quarter
Chandeliers hung from the ceilings of the curtained 'Old World', as guests arrived for the opening night party of Cirque du Soleil's 'Alegria'.
A complex sequence of lighting effects and soundscapes led to the reveal of the 'New World': a galaxy of stars and a universe of nine internally illuminated planets, the largest measuring 4.5m in diameter.
Food stalls around the room served scallops, curries and Thai boxed noodles while guests boogied on a glow-in-the-dark, polka-dot dance floor. When it all got too much, they relaxed on padded milk crates for a Chinese massage and an Apple Martini.
