Cirque du Soleil: Luzia
Innovations abound. An act that involves diving through hoops is done on a giant treadmill placed on a turntable; a waterfall splashing down the center of the stage is beautiful on its own, but its spouts can also be orchestrated at such a minute level that it’s as if some demigod hiding in the rafters is shaping the liquid.

Cirque du Soleil embark on a journey into the sights and sounds, spice and soul of Mexico with Luzia. An acrobatic reverie that takes audiences beyond their wildest dreams through fantastical sets, vibrant costumes and jaw-dropping aerial feats – creating the unique visual spectacle that Cirque du Soleil shows are known and loved for.
Luzia interweaves Mexican myth and legend, real and imaginary worlds. The ‘stage’ transforms from a desert landscape to an underwater realm, rainforest to urban ‘jungle’. Aerial artists twist and fly through cascading water, performers in feathered costumes perform hoop diving, and giant animal puppets celebrate the natural world.
Cirque du Soleil at the Royal Albert Hall
This imagination-stirring spectacle is the perfect fit for the grandeur of the Royal Albert Hall. Before Cirque du Soleil shows, audiences can choose to enjoy champagne and dinner – with dessert perfectly timed for the interval. And for those visiting with families, it becomes Circus Soleil as the Royal Albert Hall’s boxes are transformed into a ‘Big Top’ style, with fairground treats to enjoy. It’s a fitting homage to the globally renowned company that began in 1980s Quebec as a stilt-walking circus troupe.
