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.

DC Metro Theater Arts

for a previous production "Easily one of Cirque’s sunniest and loveliest shows—a sensuously dreamy mix of imagery from an imagined Mexico layered over performances so spellbinding you will enter a whole other reality.Unlike even the most immersive movie, 'Luzia’s' illusions are present to us in the very moment we share with the people we see on stage...Cirque has upped its production game stupendously...For theater lovers of all ages, it is an enrapturing experience like none other."

Chicago Critic

for a previous production "Through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, 'Luzia' invites audiences to escape on a surrealistic journey through a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality...'Luzia' is stunningly adorned with use of water falls and a pool. Of Course there is breathtaking acrobatics with mesmerizing traditional and modern circus disciplines...There is nothing like it anywhere." Full Review

HoustonPress

for a previous production "Cirque promises a waking dream of Mexico, and when it comes to excuses for Cirque to do what it does best, this theme works out pretty well...The performers did such a great job getting the crowd invested in the performance that audience members were cheering for a juggling performance in the year 2019...The rare Cirque show that doesn’t feel like it has any dead weight."

Orlando Sentinel

for a previous production "A more concrete motif than many a Cirque show, but that doesn’t hinder the artistic imagination...The finale fiesta doesn’t quite live up to what came before. But it’s hard to compete with acts as engrossing and lovable as Evgeny Vasilenko’s slack wire, presented as a hopeful man trying to make a good impression on his date. Rolling, balancing, suspending himself on the ever-bending wire Vasilenko is utterly charming as his act conveys the giddiness, nervousness and risks of first love." Full Review

DC Theatre Scene

for a previous production "Through our Fool, we discover a waking dream of Mexico, a world as magical as any in 'Alice in Wonderland'...In between scenes that build a world reality are always topnotch human circus acts...At times, Director Tracie Valdez hasn’t found enough story-line connection for the ensemble performers as they parade on and off in various costumes. Passing flirtations become somewhat stale...If you want to run away to the circus, get thee to Cirque du Soleil." Full Review
