Cirque du Soleil returns to Chicago with “LUZIA” summer 2017

Cirque du Soleil is excited to bring its magic back to Chicago next summer with its latest soul-touching production, LUZIA. From July 21 to August 20, 2017, audiences will be invited to a redesigned white-and-gold Big Top at the United Center parking lot (1901 W. Madison Street) to escape to an imaginary Mexico – a beautifully intricate world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality. Rich in visual surprises, LUZIA delights audiences of all ages by incorporating water into acrobatic and artistic routines, a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

Tickets are available online exclusively to Cirque Club members starting today. Cirque Club membership is free and benefits includes access to advance tickets, special offers and exclusive behind-the-scenes information. To join, visit www.cirqueclub.com. Public tickets for Chicago performances of LUZIA will be available beginning Friday, December 9, 2016 at www.cirquedusoleil.com/luzia. Tickets start at $35.

LUZIA – A waking dream of Mexico

LUZIA 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.

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.

The tableaux of LUZIA weave an intricate, contemporary mosaic that awakens your senses and transports you to a place suspended between dreams and reality. Featuring a cast of 44 performers from diverse artistic backgrounds, LUZIA surprises with acrobatic performances breaking down the barriers, such as incorporating water into contemporary circus disciplines.
