Cirque du Soleil invites you to an odyssey on ice in which graphics, music,
skating and acrobatics come together to create a colourful, emotionally rich
Axel is inspired by his first love, the mysterious Lei. She turns his world
upside down, creating an unreal space for him where she will be his heroine.
As the leader of a band of rebellious youngsters, The Syndicates, Lei is the
keeper of a precious talisman. Giving strength and courage to whoever
possesses its light, the Shining Star is coveted by Vï, a super-villain
supported by his gang, The Corporation. Vï is focused on just one goal:
stealing the legendary talisman’s light!
In this epic fantasy, Axel will realize that love is the source of the light
that will give him the courage and strength he needs to overcome any obstacle
and make his wildest dreams come true. AXEL is a truly inspiring experience for
the whole family, reminding each of us how important it is to believe in our dreams.
As well as stunning figure skating and circus arts on
ice, AXEL is a show set to an upbeat musical score
packed with original pop compositions and a handful
of unique takes on famous hits, all performed live by
Axel and his band.
AXEL comprises multiple worlds full of action and emotion. Imaginary
places take shape in the pages of Axel’s sketchbook, some with an arena-concert
ambiance, others with a video game feel.
