Cirque du Soleil is gliding into the UK with its coolest arena show yet – CRYSTAL, including P&J Live from 19 to 22 March 2020. This one of a kind arena show blends circus arts and the world of ice skating in a stunning new production that will take the audience on a journey into a whimsical frozen playground where stunning skating combined with jaw dropping acrobatic feats defy the imagination.

Crystal is the name of a creative young woman who feels misunderstood and out of sync with environment. To escape her reality, she ventures out on a frozen pond and falls through the ice into an upside-down world. This magical show invites audiences to suspend reality and glide into a world that springs into colourful life with astonishing visual projections and an original score that seamlessly blends popular music with the signature sounds of Cirque du Soleil.

Featuring a multitude of ice skating styles from extreme and freelance to figure skating, audiences journey into the wonderful world of Crystal in a unique show that’s set to capture imaginations across the UK for the very first time.

Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment at P&J Livecommented: “We are thrilled to bring Cirque du Soleil to the North-East for the first time, especially since it’s their first acrobatic ice show in the UK. We expect this to be a spectacular experience for all, and can’t wait for the arena to be transformed by the magic Cirque du Soleil will bring.”

The debut UK tour of CRYSTAL will kick off in Sheffield, before travelling to Aberdeen on 19-22 March 2020.

Created by Shana Carroll and Sebastien Soldevila, Crystal, our misfit heroine, takes you 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 to become what she was always destined to be: confident, curious, and creative. 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. CRYSTAL is suitable for all ages.

The international cast of CRYSTAL features 43 artists, plus more than 40 crew members from 24 different countries.
