Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce the upcoming Southern California engagements of its delightfully imaginative and visually stunning production LUZIA, a waking dream of Mexico. Audiences are invited to a redesigned white-and-gold Big Top in Los Angeles (from December 8, 2017 – January 21, 2018) and Costa Mesa (from February 21 – March 18, 2018) to escape to an imaginary Mexico – a sumptuous world suspended between dreams and reality. Tickets for LUZIA performances at Dodger Stadium and OC Fair & Event are now on Sale at: www.cirquedusoleil.com/luzia. Tickets start at $50.
In a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA takes audiences on a surrealistic journey through a vibrant world filled with wonders, playfulness and striking artistry. Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.
With mesmerizing and refreshing performances, LUZIA brings traditional and contemporary circus disciplines to a whole new level. A Cyr Wheel artist performs the unprecedented feat of rolling and spinning under the rain, while an aerialist suspended from a Trapeze flies and twirls through pouring showers. Hoop Diving is taken onto gigantic treadmills, expanding exponentially the speed and amount of daring leaps executed. Jaw-dropping highlights include a Guinness World Record holder juggling seven pins at breakneck speeds, a male contortionist skillfully twisting his body in the world’s most unimaginable positions, a powerful Aerial Straps specialist defying the laws of gravity above the pool of a cenote (natural sinkhole) and two football (soccer) freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulations.
