If you’ve never been to a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’re missing out, but you can fix that with the upcoming Atlanta shows of LUZIA at Atlantic Station, and we have a ticket giveaway for you.
LUZIA is the newest Big Top show from Cirque, set to open September 14th and run through November 19th. The visually-stunning production LUZIA transports you to a waking dream of the wonder of Mexico.
Tickets start at about $35. There’s a special 20% offer running now, too, on select show dates and times while supplies last (and the offer cannot be combined with other offers or applied to previously purchased tickets). Here’s the link for tickets.
This new show will be a jaw-dropper, with falling water incorporated inside the big top stage, larger than life props and more of the ‘how do they do that?!’ athleticism incorporated into every Cirque performance. The props and costumes add to the awe. Want to know more? Just watch this quick trailer of the action:

I have two sets of two tickets each to give away for the October 5th performance.
If you can go that night and want to enter, leave me a comment below and let me know who you’d take along for your fun. Then share the post on Facebook and tag that person. Enter by midnight EST on September 12th. I’ll pick one winner at random on September 13th.
Cirque by the numbers (in case you’ve never been—this shows just how massive this production is, though you really do need to see it to believe it):
The Big Top seats more than 2,600 people.
The entire site set-up takes 8 days. This includes installation of the Big Top, the entrance tent, the VIP tent and the rehearsal spaces.
The Big Top stands at 19 meters (62 feet) high and is 51 meters (167 feet) in diameter. The 4 steel masts stand at 25 meters (82 feet) tall each. 550 pegs are required to hold the big top rmly to 48,500 square feet of asphalt. The Big Top can withstand winds up to 120 km/h (75 mph).
The light-coloured canvas helps counter the effects of the sun, thereby reducing energy consumption and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions.
LUZIA travels via 65 trailer trucks carrying close to 2,000 tons of equipment.
