Cirque du Soleil Luzia
Luzia takes you to an imaginary Mexico, where light helps the spirit, and rain soothes the soul.
The show is like a waking dream, taking audiences from an old movie set to an undersea world, and from a cenote to a city alleyway, passing smoothly from an urban setting to the natural world, from the past to the present via fascinating Mexican mythology and traditions.
