They’ve done it: Montreal’s Cirque du Soleil has finally come up with a show on ice, and it’s going to be in Metro Vancouver this spring.
Crystal will showcase the world-renown troupe’s incredible artistry and acrobatics during what promises to be an unforgettable on ice experience.
Cirque du Soleil is known for its captivating storytelling, and Crystal definitely seems to be in line with the kind of visual and physical narrative the group presents. Here’s the story synopsis:
Follow Crystal, our lead character, on an exhilarating tale of self-discovery as she dives into a world of her own imagination. Feel the adrenaline as she soars through this surreal world at high speed to become what she was always destined to be: confident, liberated, empowered.
