Alegría was one of Cirque du Soleil's most popular touring shows created in 1994. Since then it has been performed over 5000 times and travelled over more than 250 cities around the world. Saan Trucking provided all the transportation needs for the two and a half year European Arena Tour which started in 2011.

Our Expertise

We used 22 trailers to transfer the show every week to the new performance venue with three Lead Drivers who stayed with the tour full-time, including ferry transfers, to coordinate the tour successfully. Together with our production team they managed the load-in and load out plans, as well as the unstrapping for load out and load in.

All other trailers were transferred using ‘Power Only’, managed and instructed by our Lead Drivers. The use of GPS-tracked trailers ensured control and oversight on the progress of the trailers and transfers. Ordinarily the load-out took place on Sunday evening with the load-in scheduled for Tuesday at the next venue. The tour-schedule included shows in Tel Aviv, Istanbul and a flagship transfer from Tenerife to Herning.

The Cirque du Soleil “Allegría” Arena Tour is a typical example of a custom made transport solution for a Family Entertainment production. Do you want to know what we can you for your live event? Please do not hesitate to contact us about the possibilities.
