Cirque du Soleil’s Luzia has arrived in Melbourne bringing a mesmerising spectacle that weaves a captivating story through breathtaking performances from talented performers who make the mind boggle.


Luzia takes the audience on a journey through the vibrant and enchanting world of Mexico, celebrating its rich culture and folklore. From the moment the main character, a parachutist, drops into our view we’re transported to a realm where dreams and reality blend seamlessly, creating a sense of wonder and awe.

With each performance, the momentum builds and the audience experiences such visual delights from the performers with their talent on full display.


One of the most enchanting features of Luzia is the use of a stunning water curtain that serves as a canvas for breathtaking projections and visual effects. The interplay of water and light adds an extra dimension to the performances, enhancing the magic and beauty of each act. Whether it’s shimmering reflections or dynamic splashes, the water curtain becomes an integral part of the storytelling, creating moments of sheer spectacle and wonder.


The water curtain is most delightful during the Cyr Wheel and Trapeze performance where two young women weave their way around the stage in these large majestic hoops and then joined by a Trapeze artist who performs a series of figures hanging from the roof. The water curtain adds a level of sophistication to their performance and delights in the splendour of their ability to perform surrounded and doused in the water.

The contortionist and juggler performances in Luzia are also nothing short of extraordinary. The contortionist’s incredible flexibility and grace leave the audience in awe, as they twist and bend their body in ways that seem impossible. Similarly, the juggler’s skill and precision are showcased in a mesmerising routine that combine dexterity, timing, and creativity.

Another highlight was the Swing to Swing performance showcasing the Russian swing act. An amazing set of swings on each side of the circular stage see a range of daring flights of performers between the two swings, separately or together, and at great heights.


All the acts add depth and diversity to the show, showcasing the incredible talent and artistry of the performers.


Overall, Cirque du Soleil’s Luzia in Melbourne is a must-see experience that dazzles the senses and leaves a lasting impression of beauty and wonder.
