From Broadway-inspired musical acts to classic acrobatic tricks performed on various elements such as ice and water, Cirque du Soleil is constantly reinventing the circus. This spring you can experience all the artistic mystique of Cirque du Soleil right here in Orlando. From March 7 to 31, you’ll enjoy Luzia: A Waking Dream of Mexico under the Big Top at the Florida Mall.
A Dazzling Journey of Water and Light
Whether this is your first Cirque du Soleil show or you are a regular at the circus, Luzia is sure to delight. Bright colors, a rich soundtrack, and talented performers provide a sensory delight that transports you to a vivid and surreal world. Inspired by the vibrancy of Mexico, Luzia incorporates ancient and modern Mexican culture into the production. Acrobats perform soccer-inspired tricks, beautiful animal puppets grace the stage, and young Mexican singer Majo Cornejo provides stunning vocals. Even the name Luzia is a portmanteau of the Spanish words luz (light) and lluvia (rain). Staying true to their name, Luzia plays with light and water as Cirque du Soleil never has before. You’ll watch in wonderment as aerialists spin through the air and Cyr wheel artists perform flawlessly during the pouring rain.
The Big Top in Orlando
Luzia takes place under the Grand Chapiteau or Big Top in Orlando, at the Florida Mall. As a Big Top show, you’ll find it is more immersive than arena productions as Cirque du Soleil has tailored every inch of space for maximum effect. Even the tent itself was specially designed for Luzia, with a yellow and white design that represents the sun, moon, and outer space. This is the first time a big top show has traveled to Orlando so you don’t want to miss out on this historic performance.
