Cirque Du Soleil Luzia
This touring show takes you to an imaginary Mexico where light (luz) quenches the spirit and rain (lluvia) soothes the soul. With a series of beautiful visual surprises and stunning acrobatic performances, LUZIA cleverly highlights multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico that are both traditional and modern. The performance is at the Florida Mall, so you can combine it with a day of excellent shopping and dining. March 7
