The production will play at the venue from the 12th January to mark the company’s 30th anniversary in the UK.
Cirque du Soleil will return to the Royal Albert Hall in 2020 with its production of Luzia a waking dream of Mexico, being performed in the UK for the first time. The arrival of Luzia next year will also mark thirty years since Cirque du Soleil first brought its awe-inspiring acrobatics to the UK.
In a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, Luzia takes audiences on a surrealistic journey through a vibrant world 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.
The show will bring together traditional and contemporary circus disciplines to a whole new level. Acts will include 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. Hoop Diving is taken onto gigantic treadmills, expanding exponentially the speed and amount of daring leaps executed. Jaw-dropping highlights include a male contortionist skillfully twisting his body in the world’s most unimaginable positions, a powerful Aerial Straps specialist defying the laws of gravity at the centre of a cenote (natural sinkhole), a juggler tossing seven pins at breakneck speed, and two football freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulation.
Cirque du Soleil will bring Luzia to the Royal Albert Hall from the 12th January until the 16th February 2020.
