Cirque Du Soleil: Luzia Show
*These have gone out of stock frequently, but are back in stock and it says there are limited tickets available.
Cirque du Soleil is back in the Puget Sound with their popular, LUZIA show, at the King County Park, Marymoor Park in Redmond. They opened in the beginning of April and the show will now be here through May 21, 2017. The theme of this show is a waking dream of Mexico and it looks like it will be quite a vivid, colorful and imaginative performance. The show takes place under a Big Top tent, along with a Cirque du Soleil village with gift shop & more.
We have not been to the show before, but have heard rave reviews from family members and friends who have gone to previous Cirque du Soleil shows, so I’m sure the LUZIA performance will be another spectacular visual display of acrobatics.
Here is more information about the LUZIA show:
Through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA takes audiences on a surrealistic journey through an imaginary Mexico – a sumptuous world 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.
A newly designed white-and-gold Big Top LUZIA marks the first time Cirque du Soleil presents a production under a Big Top featuring printed patterns directly related to the theme of the show. The patterns evoke the association between Cirque du Soleil (the sun) and Mexico (the word originates from Mtztli, meaning ‘moon,” and Xuctli, which means ‘middle’) and symbolize the meeting of two celestial bodies: the sun and the moon. A bird’s eye view reveals the path of the stars that spiral out from the centre of the Big Top – the symbolic meeting point between earth and sky, sacred and human.
