It’s only here for a limited time, and you don’t want to miss it. Cirque du Soleil is bringing their first big top performance Luzia to Orlando.
The dazzling show from the Canadian performance troupe takes you to our other neighbor Mexico, where a wacky mime blunders around searching for water, encountering wondrous birds, beautiful musicians, and colorful scenery following him on his way
Even walking in, you are greeted by a stage of golden sunflowers, whose smell only enhance the wonder you are about to experience. From there, it was nothing but constant wonder, with flashes of gold and red performed amazing acrobatics, feats of daring, all to a score to ensnare all of your senses in awe.
Within all this beauty and wonder comes to comic relief, to mime comic relief, on a constant mission to refill an empty flask with water. It is through his tomfoolery that we witness this amazing journey.
When a pause is needed for our performers to prepare, mime performs for and with the audience. Be prepared to throw a beach ball around to the authoritative commands of a whistle. It will be the most confused fun you will ever experience.
Luzia is a must-see experience that will dazzle everyone in your family. The big top is located at the Florida Mall next to Macy’s and will be here in Orlando until April 21. You can purchase tickets now.
