incredible performances. Cirque du soleil crystal

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.
