“We are excited to create a unique entertainment experience on ice for all spectators to enjoy. It’s a wonderful opportunity for Cirque du Soleil as ice provides us with an entirely new field of play which also comes with a set of creative challenges. Our goal is to continuously surprise audiences by showcasing all the incredible possibilities on ice,” explained Yasmine Khalil, Executive Producer of Crystal.
CRYSTAL will follow a young woman who shatters through reality to reach a surreal world beneath the surface. The brand new arena production is Cirque du Soleil’s 42nd since 1984.
