The world-renowned Cirque du Soleil will be showing “Crystal”, its first ever acrobatic show on ice, from December 5 through 9 at the Capital One Arena of Washington, D.C.
The show centers around a woman who falls into a frozen pond where she follows her reflection, discovering her creativity and confidence during an inward journey. The acrobatic show is directed by Shana Carroll and Sebastien Soldevila.
“Watch world-class ice skaters and acrobats claim their new frozen playground with speed and fluidity as they challenge the laws of gravity with never-before-seen acrobatics. A new kind of performance as Cirque du Soleil meets the ice to defy all expectations,” states the show brief on the Cirque du Soleil website.
Embarking on a journey of self-discovery, Crystal, a misfit heroine, dives into a world of her own imagination in her performance on ice. “Feel the adrenaline as she soars through this surreal world to become what she was always destined to be: confident, curious, and creative,” the show brief adds.
“CRYSTAL invites you to suspend reality and glide into a world that springs to colorful life with astounding visual projections and a soundtrack that seamlessly blends popular music with the signature sound of Cirque du Soleil.”
Cirque du Soleil shared Tuesday a video on its official Twitter account of its team skating over the ice rink outside the National Gallery of Art, announcing that they are “getting ready” for Wednesday’s premiere at the Capital One Arena.
The show is suitable for all age groups. The tickets for the show are priced at $65-$170.
