Crystal by Cirque Du Soleil@FirstOntario Centre Hamilton, Ontario-Wed.,June 20th,2018
It is Cirque du Soleil’s 42nd original show since 1984, and the first one done on an ice rink, where most of the performers are ice skating throughout the show, and blends several circus acts with high-level ice skating.
Narrated by a voiceover, it tells the story of Crystal, a young girl who gets into an argument with her family and runs outside, where she falls through thin ice on a frozen pond and ends up into an upside world.
Who doesn’t love a good trapeze act or acrobatic routine especially on ice? Crystal consists of 40 artists including ice skaters, acrobats, musicians, and a comic character, plus more than 40 crew members supporting the tour every day.
Cirque du Soleil is obsessed with outdoing itself. Skaters and acrobats share their skills in Crystal, Cirque du Soleil’s first show on ice. There are swinging trapezes, aerial straps, and hand-to-hand acrobatics along with freestyle figure, and even all out speedskating. The show features a spectacular set of a hockey game performed partly on ramps by extreme skaters.
