Cirque du Soleil announces the Denver engagement of its delightfully imaginative and visually-stunning production LUZIA, a waking dream of Mexico. Show dates run June 1 – July 9, 2017, and audiences will be impressed with a redesigned white-and-gold Big Top in Pepsi Center’s Parking Lot that transforms guests into a land of imaginary Mexico—a sumptuous world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.
The show, LUZIA – A waking dream of Mexico, is written and directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, in association with Brigitte Poupart. Freely inspired by Mexico, LUZIA is a poetic and acrobatic ode to the rich, vibrant culture of a country whose wealth stems from an extraordinary mix of influences and creative collisions; a land that inspires awe with its breathtaking landscapes and architectural wonders, buoyed by the indomitable spirit of its people.
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!
