SOLSTICE® from Circo Luci premiered in 2008, with the launch of the first Solstice-Class vessel from Celebrity Cruise Lines, the Celebrity Solstice. SOLSTICE was the first show from Circo Luci to be performed on a cruise vessel and was designed as the first true theatrical circus performed at sea.
During its 8 years at sea and over 500 performances at sea, Solstice has thrilled the press and cruise guests with its breathtaking aerial performances, spectacular sets and costuming and original soundtrack. In its 8th year, the show (along with all of the POET Theatricals’ productions on board Celebrity Cruise Lines) won the prestigious “Best Entertainment” Award from Global Traveler Magazine in 2015.
Envisioned as a heavily aerial-focused live event, the entire cast performed theatrical flying effects during the source of the show both over the audience and over the stage for over 650,000 spectators at sea.
After completion of its extended 8 year run, Solstice has been completely updated to adapt to multiple types of entertainment venues, including tents, convention centers, open spaces, retail venues and outdoor settings.

SOLSTICE from Circo Luci is a theatrical circus with a celestial theme suitable for all ages.
With the sun passing through the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, a solstice occurs twice a year, a cause for celebration in June and December. The summer solstice represents the longest day and shortest night of the year, while the winter solstice corresponds to the shortest day and longest night of the year.
The “ecliptic” is the apparent path that the sun traces out in the sky. Unbeknownst to most of mankind, the ecliptic passes through a thirteenth constellation, Ophiuchus.
Ophiuchus occupies an honored place along the zodiac, amidst the cluster of dust and clouds looking toward the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
And this is his story …..
SOLSTICE® from Circo Luci is available for booking for weekly engagements worldwide. The show has been designed to perform in a theater but can also be presented in various other types of performance spaces.
SOLSTICE® from Circo Luci is part of the 3 show “Solstice Package” from POET Theatricals. The other productions that are included with the “Solstice Package” are Pulse (a music and dance themed show) and Ghostlight (a musical theater tribute production).
Show packages from POET Theatricals allow venues to maximize production impact inexpensively by allowing presentation of three dramatically different shows utilizing one performing cast and one preproduction expenditure. Each of the POET Theatricals’ show “packages” represents over 2.5 million dollars in capital expenditure investment in the production’s costumes, sets, flying automation, video and music.
Show packages are best used in venues that have repeat customers (casinos with strong local market draw for example), guests that are residing in the venue (vacation destination resort hotels), or travelers that are moving from place to place with the venue (cruise ships).
POET Theatricals has the ability to “mix and match” show packages depending on audience demographics.
The Circo Luci SOLSTICE® production includes the following:
Shipping requirements can be scaled depending on show size and scope of technical infrastructure required for the performance. The show can adapt to existing staging, lighting and rigging layouts. POET Theatricals’ goal is to reduce the preproduction cost and installation of the show as much as possible, and we work with presenters to trim these expenses.
Examples of shipping requirements are:
Soft Sets The SOLSTICE “Soft Set” production requires cargo space of one 24’ truck or a 40’ high-cube oceangoing container (for overseas productions). This includes all of the soft goods (theatrical drops) and video projection surfaces used in the production and staging of the performance.
Turn-key Our “turn-key” production package adds all lighting, sound, venue required soft goods, venue rigging and staging for the show in a complete turn-key package. This additional technical support travels in 1 or 2, 53-foot tractor trailers, depending on the level of production support required for the venue.
TRAVELING CAST AND CREW

Crew size is 3 persons: 1 Technical director, 1 FOH operator (lighting, media and show control), and 1 lead rigger/ acrobatic rigger.
