Cirque du Soleil Ventures Into Icy Territory with CRYSTAL in Chicago

Cirque du Soleil ventures into uncharted territory with its brand-new creation, Crystal by Cirque du Soleil, exploring the artistic attributes of ice for the very first time.

Specifically created for arenas, the state-of-the-art production will create a fresh innovative experience, pushing the boundaries once again by combining outstanding skating and sliding, remarkable aesthetics and acrobatic feats that defy the imagination.

Crystal will perform at the Sears Centre Arena, 5333 Prairie Stone Parkway, Hoffman Estates, IL in six performances only, November 16-19, 2017. Tickets for Crystal start at $30.

Crystal, the show's main character, sets out on an exhilarating quest to fulfill her destiny as she dives into a world of her own imagination. She soars through this surreal world at high speed to become what she was always destined to be: confident, freed, empowered.

Crystal is about looking at things from fresh angles, peeking through the veneer of everyday life, reframing one's daily reality to see what one might have missed. Sometimes the only way to appreciate things is to look at them sideways. Discovering one's individuality and uniqueness requires venturing out on thin ice.

Show Schedule: November 16 - 19, 2017: Thursday, November 16 at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, November 18 at 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, November 19 at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Tickets at cirquedusoleil.com/crystal.

Crystal is Cirque du Soleil's 42nd original production since 1984. The company has brought wonder and delight to more than 180 million spectators in more than 450 cities on six continents. Cirque du Soleil has over 4,000 employees, including 1,300 performing artists from 50 different countries.
