Mexico is known for many things including its food, tequila, artistic expression, mariachi, rich culture and fashion, as seen by the arrival of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Mexico City. So it’s no surprise that one of the largest theatrical productions on the planet decided to capture the essence of Mexico and feature it in the colorful presentation that only they can.

Since 1984, Cirque du Soleil has produced 38 circus-themed shows with an adult-centric vibe that has made Cirque a must-see. Cirque du Soleil: Amaluna received rave reviews, while Toruk, inspired by James Cameron’s film Avatar, transported ticket holders to Pandora, an alien world with acrobats, music and lots of emotion.
