Extra week added to the Calgary run of Cirque du Soleil’s Luzia

Procrastinators rejoice!

You waited and waited and then when you finally went to purchase your tickets to see Cirque du Soleil’s upcoming production of Luzia, your choices were few.

Well congratulations — they’ve now extended the run, which will now take place Aug. 16 to Sept. 22 under the white-and-gold big top at Stampede Park.

Tickets are available from www.cirquedusoleil.com/luzia.

For those unfamiliar with the production, you can read about it here, but the quick synopsis is that it’s a journey to “an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (‘luz’ in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (‘lluvia’) soothes the soul.”

Acrobatics, hoop diving, contortionists, clowns, aerial specialists, indoor rainstorms — and so much more of the unexpected that you’ve come to expect from Cirque.
