The premise of the show begins with Crystal – she’s a bit of an oddball, always lost in her daydreams and yearning for something more in her life. One fateful day, feeling like the world just doesn’t get her, she decides to take a stroll on a frozen pond. Well, you can guess what happens next – she plunges through the ice. But here’s where things get interesting: under the icy surface, in her own little underwater fantasy world, she has this vision. It’s like a reflection of herself, a sort of alter ego, and it’s here to give her a reality check.
This “Reflection” of hers is on a mission to wake Crystal up to her own incredible talents and creativity. Through writing, Crystal discovers her hidden potential, and with just a stroke of her pen, she starts changing the world around her. It’s a journey of self-discovery that forces her to face the real world, stronger than she’s ever been.
“CRYSTAL really pushes the boundaries of possibility within the circus arts. The show highlights Cirque du Soleil’s creativity in a new way and encourages audiences to find the magic of the everyday,” said Robert Tannion, Artistic Director of Crystal. “Every time you watch, there’s something new to see and experience. We’re thrilled to bring the show back to Tucson this winter!”
“Soaring through the air with a succession of skilfully maneuvered backflips, leaps and vaults.” – The Sunday Post
“breakthrough ice experience that is more than just figure skating!” – The Western Australian
For the very first time in Cirque du Soleil history, they decided to spice things up by incorporating cover versions of some famous pop songs into their signature-style music. If you’re curious as to why well… these revamped tunes were strategically chosen to tug at your heartstrings and elevate the highlights in the storyline. The artists handpicked to perform these covers weren’t just chosen for their knack for capturing the essence of the original songs. No, no! They were carefully selected because they have that special something – a magic touch – that can crank up the emotional intensity of the scenes they’re paired with. In other words, they’re here to sprinkle a little extra Cirque du Soleil enchantment onto those songs you know and love.
A review from Lilithia said, “My favourite moment of Cirque Du Soleil’s CRYSTAL, however, was the stunning performance between a talented acrobat on aerial straps and our Crystal. The choreography was amazing, the aerialist appearing to gracefully walk on air, and without words, the pair helped tell a heart aching tale of an otherworldly love. It was so beautiful, I believe that none of my words can justify how wonderful this performance was. Both the emotions and performance were only enhanced when accompanied by a cover of the Ryan Tedder penned Beyoncé famed ballad, ‘Halo’.” The writer was absolutely blown away by the show and had nothing but good things to say about it.
