Cirque du Soleil Crystal at PPG Paints Arena

As popular as Cirque du Soleil is, it’s one of those shows that doesn’t come around as often as you’d like. That’s why you should take any opportunity that you can to catch one of their
incredible performances. Cirque du soleil crystal

If you’re going to be in Pittsburgh – whether for business or pleasure – make sure you check out the latest Cirque show: Cirque du Soleil Crystal.

What Is This New Cirque du Soleil Show About?

Cirque’s latest show is about a young woman named Crystal and her path toward self-discovery through her exceptionally vivid imagination.

This show has everything you love about every other Cirque performance, namely, acrobats, aerial dancers, and daredevils.

The difference with this show, though, is that it all takes place on ice.

That’s right – the main character and everyone she interacts with will tell their story on the ice. Plus, there are some amazing interactions between characters both on the ice and in the air.

If you thought the Cirque performers were amazing on the ground and in the air – just wait until they add ice into the mix. It will definitely take your breath away.

You can find this Cirque show at the PPG Paints Arena – the premier center for concerts, shows, and athletic events.

Planning a Trip to See a Cirque Show? Stay at the Sheraton Pittsburgh!

What’s the next best thing to visiting the city and watching a fantastic show? Staying at the Sheraton Pittsburgh at Station Square, of course.

After a long, fun day of seeing everything this great city has to offer, enjoy a relaxing stay in one of our comfortable, luxurious suites.
