A Breakthrough Ice Experience -- Skate on the Edge of Reality


A young woman shatters through reality to reach the surreal world of possibility. Beyond the surface, she pursues the life that has been glistening beneath. Sometimes, we must first leave solid ground to find our true footing. Crystal, the show’s main character, sets out on an exhilarating quest to fulfill her destiny as she dives into a world of her own imagination. She soars through this surreal world at high speed to become what she was always destined to be: confident, freed, empowered.

In CRYSTAL, Cirque du Soleil explores the very essence of skating, assessing the artistic limits of ice for the first time in the company’s history, asking how they can bring their signature style of acrobatics into yet uncharted territory – a sheet of ice – and blur the boundaries between gliding sports and circus arts.

Follow Crystal in her journey towards empowerment. Enter a dreamlike world fueled by her imagination, where boundless creativity transforms the everyday into something extraordinary. Crystal invites you to suspend reality and glide into a world that springs to a colorful life with astounding visual projections and an original score that seamlessly blends popular music with the signature sound of Cirque du Soleil.Watch as world-class ice skaters and acrobats take their new frozen playground by storm with speed and fluidity as they challenge the laws of gravity with daring acrobatics.

But CRYSTAL is more than just an ice show. This unique production pushes boundaries of performance by combining stunning skating and acrobatic feats that defy the imagination. Gymnasts and skaters perform acrobatics on the ice and in the air, melding both worlds together. Disciplines such as swinging trapeze, aerial straps, and hand to hand are fused together with disciplines such as synchro, freestyle, figure, and extreme skating on ramps, with a dash of all-out speed skating. Figure skaters learn to be pushers on Chinese poles, while circus artists learn to skate, and extreme skaters learn figure skating moves.
