Cirque du Soleil sweeps through Houston this weekend with Alegría. The show has thrilled millions around the world with its exciting acts, including the Russian Bars, where acrobats leap through the air, performing somersaults and other tricks while in flight, then landing on thin bars that catchers are holding on their shoulders. There's also the Aerial High Bars performed more than 40 feet above the stage. 7:30 Wednesday and Thursday, 3:30, 7:30 p.m. Friday, 12, 4 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 1 and 5 p.m. Sunday. Toyota Center, 1510 Polk Street. For information, call 1-866-446-8849. $40 to $99.
