The best gifts aren’t tangible objects; they’re experiences—activities with loved ones that make memories to last a lifetime. Some of those experiences happen to involve awe-inspiring acrobatics and wide-eyed wonder.
Now happening in Vancouver is one of the world’s most exciting performances: Cirque Du Soleil’s LUZIA is under the Big Top at Concord Pacific Place.
A joyful, thrilling production inspired by Mexico—its people, culture, stories, and lore—LUZIA transports audiences across ocean, desert, jungle, city, and beyond with daring feats, artistry, and theatricality.
In a first for Cirque du Soleil, rain falls from the Big Top sky. Integrating the element of water adds a level of acrobatic complexity never before seen in Canada. Cyr Wheel artists roll under the rain, while a Trapeze aerialist spirals through pouring showers. (And all that water is recycled.)
Taking in Cirque du Soleil’s latest thrilling show makes for an unforgettable outing. Elevating LUZIA to a whole new level is the Mastercard VIP Experience.
The exclusive perks start with complimentary parking on-site and access to the VIP suite an hour before the show starts. There, you enter the world of LUZIA with stunning show-inspired décor that sets the tone; you also have private access to a terrace and washrooms (no waiting in line). Sip on beer, wine, or sparkling wine from the open bar and enjoy Mexican-inspired canapés with a modern twist.
Complete with chef stations, the exquisite fare is prepared by Vancouver’s acclaimed Savoury Chef, which sources premium local, seasonal ingredients.
Come show time, Mastercard VIP Experience guests enter the Big Top through a dedicated entrance and settle into the best seats under the Grand Chapiteau. That means seeing the acrobats and artists up close and feeling like you’re part of the action.
At intermission, guests get to return to the VIP suite for delightful sweet treats and access to the private open bar and washrooms. Before heading back to the performance, they get a bag of popcorn and an exclusive show-inspired gift to take home as a souvenir.
LUZIA’s Mastercard VIP Experience is the ideal way to treat yourself and your loved ones, whether you’re celebrating the holidays or another special occasion—or just because.
Cirque du Soleil’s LUZIA runs until December 29. For further information about the Mastercard VIP Experience and more, visit cirquedusoleil.com/luzia.
