CIRQUE DU SOLEIL ‘LUZIA’

Sunday 16 February 2020
Matinee performance

Cirque du Soleil returns to London’s Royal Albert Hall in 2020, bringing their dazzling luminous spectacle LUZIA to Europe for the very first time! As usual, Solent Events has been one of the first companies to purchase some of the  very BEST seats in the raised stalls.

This is your chance to enjoy one of the most spectacular shows in the world in one of the most spectacular venues in the world! Tickets normally sell out really quickly, especially to our Cirque followers, but as we only arrange this event every two years, it is getting even more popular with our local clientele!

Luzia is a Cirque du Soleil show inspired by the richness of the Mexican culture and 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.

Luzia takes you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light quenches the spirit and rain soothes the soul. … The tableaux of LUZIA weave an intricate, contemporary mosaic that awakens your senses and transports you to a place suspended between dreams and reality.

With a surrealistic series of grand visual surprises and breath-taking acrobatic performances, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity.

Luzia takes audiences from an old movie set to the ocean to the semi-desert to an undersea world to a cenote to the jungle to a city alleyway to a dance salon – passing smoothly from an urban setting to the natural world, past to present, tradition to modernity.

The fascination of the Mexican people for the animal world is as evident in the country’s traditions and mythology as it is in its traditional arts and crafts. The world of Luzia is populated by surrealistic animals of all sizes.

Integrating the element of water adds a level of acrobatic complexity never-before-seen under the Big Top at Cirque du Soleil. Cyr Wheel artists perform the unprecedented feat of rolling and spinning under the rain, while an aerialist suspended from a Trapeze flies and twirls through pouring showers.

Luzia explores the combination of hoop diving – a traditional circus discipline from China – and two giant treadmills to generate speed and expand exponentially the amount of daring leaps executed.

With a luxury coach to London from just four local pick-ups, you will have the opportunity to visit the Kensington Museums or go shopping in Knightsbridge; take lunch in the excellent Italian Verdi Restaurant, situated in the Royal Albert Hall and then enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and nibbles during your journey home! What more could you ask for!

VERDI RESTAURANT, Royal Albert Hall: The food is excellent. The atmosphere is great – and of course your theatre seat is conveniently situated just a few minutes away! You are able to choose from delicious dishes on a ‘set menu’. £21.50 for 2-courses and £26.50 for 3-courses. Just let us know on your booking form if you would like to join us. Pay locally.

Dress Code: Although you will see visitors in a wide array of attire, the atmosphere calls for a more sophisticated style of dress. While jackets and ties are not required, we suggest casual evening attire for our guests!
