Cirque du Soleil’s LUZIA Debuts in Denver June 1 Under the Big Top Tent! @ Pepsi Center
Jun 1 – Jul 9 all-day

Delightfully-imaginative and visually-stunning, Cirque du Soleil’s production LUZIA is a waking dream of Mexico. Families are invited to a redesigned white-and-gold Big Top in Pepsi Center’s Parking Lot (Prius West Lot) from June 1 – July 9, 2017, to escape to an imaginary Mexico – a sumptuous world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.

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.
