Luzia San Francisco Cirque Du Soleil Sneak Peak! – Watch Kirsten Moran Go Behind-The-Scenes under the Big Top at AT&T Park, Learning Trapeze Moves and More!
Bay Area HQ’s Kirsten Moran caught up with Cirque Du Soleil’s Emily Nicole Tucker and Francis Jalbert to talk about what’s new with this installment of Cirque Du Soleil.
The massive white-and-gold Big Top was raised last week at AT&T Park in preparation for the U.S. premiere of its latest soul-touching production, LUZIA. A team of more than 60 men and women worked for several hours to pound pegs, unfurl the canvas, and push more than 100 supporting poles to make the intimate tent take its shape. We go inside and show you a special preview of the show. Get your tickets here. Take a look!

Luzia San Francisco – A waking dream of Mexico LUZIA 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. Freely inspired by Mexico, LUZIA is a poetic and acrobatic ode to the rich, vibrant culture of a country whose wealth stems from an extraordinary mix of influences and creative collisions – a land that inspires awe with its breathtaking landscapes and architectural wonders, buoyed by the indomitable spirit of its people. The tableaux of LUZIA weave an intricate, contemporary mosaic that awakens your senses and transports you to a place suspended between dreams and reality. Featuring a cast of 44 performers from diverse artistic backgrounds, LUZIA surprises with acrobatic performances breaking down the barriers, such as integrating rain and water to contemporary circus disciplines.
