Alegria is a show that's part of the Cirque Du Soleil group of productions.
The two and a half hour performance showcases breathtaking acrobatics, contortionists, aerialists, various dancers among other things.
This week it will host five days of performances beginning Wednesday December 1st and ending Sunday December 5th.
UTEP Leaders say having Cirque Du Soleil come to El Paso will hopefully pave the way for more world renowned acts to make their way to the borderland.
Representatives for Alegria say there's months of preparation that goes before the show can be put on in a city.
Their new arena tour means the intricate stages and ceiling mechanics have to be put up and torn apart within a couple of days.
Tomorrow we will get an inside look at how these talented performers get ready for a show.
Here is a link to more information on tickets to the show.
