Thank you to Allied Contigo for inviting me and my family to our very first Cirque du Soleil show, Luzia. All opinions and photos are mine.
LUZIA: A Waking Dream of Mexico is a more than a show, it's an experience for the entire family. Los Angeles, we are so lucky to have such a wonderful show right here in our backyard and lucky for you, I am sharing with you a 40% off discount.

I was invited to a preview of the latest Cirque du Soleil Luzia: A Waking Dream of Mexico show to come to Los Angeles back in November and could not wait to see the show in its entirety. I previewed three different acts and although I had seen clips from the show, nothing compares to seeing it live and in person.
I brought along my youngest daughter as my date for the evening. It is not often that we get to do many activities just the two of us, and this was perfect. I would say kids as young as 6 would thoroughly enjoy the show, although, keep in mind the late time of the evening show. It was a little past her bedtime. I also brought along my parents, as it happened to fall on the evening of their 39th wedding anniversary. I guess you could say that the show was definitely enjoyed by multi-generations.
What I did not expect was the story that was being told. To be perfectly honest, I may not have understood each and every aspect of the show's story but I was impressed and blown away by the beauty and talent during each act. This is a talented group of individuals that have perfected their art beautifully.
One of the aspects of the show that most people probably don't consider is the emotions and energy that radiate from within the audience. It's incredible to sit in the crowd and "Oooh and Ahh!" right alongside every one else. To gasp collectively, to have our breath taken away at the same time, makes it all that much more exciting.
As a Latina I would like to take a moment to share my appreciation for the beauty of the Latin culture that was represented throughout Luzia: A Waking Dream of Mexico. Did you know that the name Luzia is a combination of two words in Spanish? Luz and Lluvia meaning Light and Rain. Yes, the show features both Light and Rain as a complimentary backdrop to the acts and sometimes even the star of the show.
The strength, endurance and flexibility of some of these acts is almost too much to wrap your head around. But nonetheless, very, very entertaining to watch.
I can't go on without mentioning the beautiful voice of Majo Cornejo. Cornejo's voice helps guide the audience through the show and the 18 songs she performs. You will know her voice and love her voice as a part of the show all on it's own.
