The New “Vai Vedrai” Now Available

After presenting a captivating number during the gala Célébration 2019, Cirque du Soleil is proud to unveil a revisited version of Vai Vedrai, the first musical excerpt from its new revisited Alegría- In a New Light soundtrack. Jean-Phi Gonclaves, renowned for his work as Musical Director on the Série Hommage, the Cirque du Soleil tribute series presented in Trois-Rivières, arranged and produced Vai Vedrai, composed by René Dupéré. This adaptation of the Alegría score will immerse audiences in the show’s new world.

“Vai Vedrai, is the story of a mother inviting her child to leave the nest and discover the wonderful folly of the world. There exists a touching combination between the music and the lyrics which is just as meaningful today” mentions Jean-Phi Goncalves, the show’s musical director. “The challenge is to update the song’s arrangement by taking it apart and putting it back together differently.” It bears mentioning that the soundtrack of the original Alegría show remains one of Cirque du Soleil’s most popular albums and that its theme song was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1995.



Starting January 14, digital download and streaming providers will offer a sneak peek at the show’s revisited soundtrack through Vai Vedrai. The complete soundtrack will be available on April 25th.
