Cirque du Soleil is bringing its newest Big Top Experience, LUZIA, to Orlando for the first time this March. Held under the Big Top at the Florida Mall select dates from March 7 – 31, 2019, the show depicts an imaginary, whimsical version of Mexico waffling between dreams and reality.
Viewers will be immersed into a surreal world through a series of acrobatic performances and unique scenery, elements which have made Cirque du Soleil performances so beloved amongst audiences.
Throughout the show, audience members will be transported to a dream of Mexico where “light quenches the spirit and rain soothes the soul.” This experience combines Mexican tradition and modernity with traditional and contemporary circus elements.
Look forward to being stunned by aerialists flying through rain while suspended from a Trapeze, hoop divers performing on oversized treadmills, contortionists moving in seemingly impossible ways, high-speed jugglers, and even more incredible feats.
Show highlights include:
- Cyr Wheel artists
- Aerialist suspended from a trapeze
- Hoop Diving
- Male contortionist
- Aerial Straps specialist
- Freestyle performance mixing street dance and ball manipulation
Rain is incorporated into some of the acrobatic scenes, which is a first for a Cirque du Soleil production.
LUZIA is Cirque du Soleil‘s 17th Big Top Show. Tickets begin at $54 per person.
