About the show

Cirque du Soliel's new show takes you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. More…

With a surrealistic series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, "Luzia" cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity.

Quirky, Great staging, Dizzying, Entertaining, Clever

See it if spectacular visuals based of cutting edge technology appeal to you. Talented performers fly, roll, spin, dance, sing etc. Just glorious.

Don't see it if you get overwhelmed by too much visual stimulation. An acrobat balances on one hand 30' above dancing cacti and marching bands.

Great staging, Exquisite

See it if Cirque du Soleil raises the bar again with beautiful sets incorporating technology to enhance their circus acts. Mexican-ish w/ the decor.

Don't see it if Circus acts (i.e., acrobatics, trapeze, juggling, etc.) aren't your thing. No animals, if you were expecting that.

Also Ticket from online rush via TodayTix app for $39.50. Seat towards the ... Read more Read less

Inconsistent, Entertaining, Great acrobatics, Visually beautiful

See it if you want to see some phenomenal performers in a mostly good (but very by the book) Cirque show and don't mind some weaker numbers mixed in.

Don't see it if you're not a fan of Cirque du Soleil, this won't make you one. They do what they do well but it can get repetitive.

Also One of the most badly behaved audiences that I have encountered. Numer... Read more Read less

Refreshing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever

See it if It is NOT a circus but an entertaining show of pure acrobatics...with some jokers mixed in. Great for adults and children.Take the Subway!

Don't see it if If you do NOT like light hearted fun, good music, fabulous colors and a creative production.

Wet, Redundant, Overrated, Engaging, Disappointing

See it if You enjoy redundant stunts with random people as props walking around the stage go see Luzia.

Don't see it if You might catch yourself yawning to the boring repetitive stunts that the overworked performers put on. It’s a disservice to Mexican culture

"Cirque du Soleil has set the bar so high in previous productions that we have come to expect a certain level of expertise and physical prowess. 'Luzia' is missing the wow factor that appeared in earlier Cirque shows simply because we have seen many of these acts before. Without a narrator, much ...
