luzWhen I was in my 20s  (as if I can just casually write that!) I lived with a group of amazing girls who loved me so much, that for my birthday they took me to see Cirque du Soleil in Ottawa. Wikipedia leads me to believe it was Saltimbanco, but I don’t remember details (it was almost a decade ago and we were kind of in perpetual party mode…!) I do, however, remember the FEELING. It was pure magic. Ethereal. Imaginative…. I have absolutely nothing to compare it to. But maybe after April 22, I will.

I’m so looking forward to seeing the newest Cirque de Soleil Big Top, LUZIA, which opens in Montreal April 21. It’s about Mexico. I’ve never been. But I’d love to go. Luzia at the Old Port might be as close as I get for the next little while.

And you can get close to Mexico too, if you like. I have a pair of Category 1 tickets (worth $125 each) to give away to a lucky reader.

How to enter:

“Like” the Mama Naturale Facebook page and leave a comment on this post either on Facebook or this blog, telling me why you want a night out at the Cirque.

Contest closes April 15 and the winner will be randomly drawn and announced the week of April 16.

Buena suerte!

    Hubby and I are so overdue for a date night! We always wanted to see a Cirque du Soleil show but never seemed to have to budget for it When time came. Plus, it will be a great preview for our upcoming trip to Mexico :)

    Whoa! What a great prize! I used to attend circus shows in Montreal in the past. It would be a treat to get to see this show! No doubt I would feel like a kid again, just amazed by the talent of all these artists that make it look easy.
