What to expect from their first ice show ever
Cirque du Soleil’s new performing arts show, Crystal: A Breakthrough Ice Experience, premiered for the first time in North America at the Cajundome in Lafayette Thursday evening. The performance was breathtaking with incredible acrobatics, high flying and edge of your seat tricks that Cirque du Soleil is worldly known for.
The main character of the story, Crystal, takes you through her journey of self-discovery using her vivid and artistic mind. The show opened with her falling through frozen ice and entering a world created by her own imagination. Always being told to get in line and keep her head out of the clouds, she pushes through others expectations of her and discovers her own confidence, becoming liberated and empowered.
An ice rink sets the stage for an incredible performance and the story was illustrated through an intense light display. World-class speed skaters, figure skaters and acrobats used the ice as their canvas to create amazing sequences of fast paced pinball action, amazing juggling, and balancing acts like you’ve never seen.
This experience is one that the whole family will enjoy as recognizable songs during the performance influence your imagination to interpret Crystal’s story. Expect deep emotion, laughing and high spirits while watching this exceptional show.
Cirque du Soleil’s, Crystal, will be performed at the Cajudome again tonight through Sunday. Get your tickets through the cirquedusoleil.com or at cajundome.com
