Due to popular demand, Cirque du Soleil is adding two final weeks of performances (November 7 – 19, 2017) to the previously-announced Atlanta engagement of its delightfully-imaginative and visually-stunning production LUZIA, a waking dream of Mexico. Now from September 14 – November 19, 2017, audiences are invited to a redesigned white-and-gold Big Top at Atlantic Station to escape to an imaginary Mexico – a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.
Tickets for all Atlanta performances of LUZIA are now available online at www.cirquedusoleil.com/luzia. Tickets start at $35.
Through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA takes audiences on a surrealistic journey 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.
“Full of wow feats and gorgeous stage pictures.” — The Toronto Star
“Dazzle(s) the eye with luminous spectacle and gasp-worthy, derring-do.” — Bay Area News Group
With mesmerizing and refreshing acrobatic performances, LUZIA brings traditional and contemporary circus disciplines to a whole new level. Cyr Wheel artists perform 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 at the center of cenote (natural sinkhole), and two football (soccer) freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulations.
