Cirque du Soleil is thrilled to announce a new production for next spring in Montreal: LUZIAMD, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca. Presented under the Big Top in Montréal’s Old Port starting April 21, the show will then go to Port Lands in Toronto on July 28.
The name LUZIA fuses the sound of “luz” (light in Spanish) and “lluvia” (rain), two elements at the core of the show’s creation. LUZIA is a show inspired by the richness of the Mexican culture.
