The show had its soft opening in November with an offi cial world premier in December in Mon- treal. Cirque's touring shows typically have a lifespan of four or fi ve years, Silverman said, and "Toruk" will tour North America well into 2017, announcing new markets about six months in advance. Cirque unveiled "Luzia" in April in Montreal, and the new tour- ing production will open at the Port Lands in Toronto on July 28. The name comes from the fusing of two Spanish words — "luz" for light and "lluvia" for rain — and "Luzia," set in an imaginary place in Mexico, is fi lled with both. Mexico's rich culture and colorful infl uences serve as the backdrop for Cirque's 38th original produc- tion, with a cast of 44 artists from 15 countries. W W W . C I R Q U E D U S O L E I L .

Dolly Parton is expand- ing her entertainment empire with the opening of Dolly Parton's Lumberjack Adventure, which will join her other Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, attractions: Dollywood, Dollywood's Splash Country waterpark and Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede dinner theater. Parton was on hand for the lumberjack-theme dinner show's grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony in May, saying, "I can promise you've never seen another show like this in town before." The show includes acrobatics and aerial performances along with feats of skill and strength that show off lumberjacks' logging abili- ties. Last year, World Choice Investments bought the Lumberjack Feud Dinner Show and reopened it as Lumberjack Adventure with new sets and state-of-the-art special effects. W W W .
