Cirque du Soleil’s new show ‘Luzia’ heads to Denver, Colorado (Video)

Light. And rain.

That’s the idea behind Luzia, a stunning new touring production by Cirque du Soleil.

After stops in San Francisco and Seattle, the show along with the White Big Top hits the road once again. Look for Luzia next in Denver, Colorado where it will run for about a month beginning June 1, 2017.

Luzia, dubbed “a waking dream of Mexico,” has been receiving glowing reviews: Luzia a mind-bending dream from Cirque du Soleil.

Loni Stark of Stark Insider had the opportunity to head backstage. Watch the video above as she learns what it takes to stage a production that features 44 performers from 15 different countries.
