Cirque Du Soleil Brings Its First Ice Spectacular To San Diego For A Limited Engagement | CRYSTAL Takes Over Valley View Casino Center This March 21-25

March 15, 2018

Cirque du Soleil's 42nd overall production and first-ever experience on ice, Crystal takes over San Diego's Valley View Casino Center for a limited engagement from March 21-25. A new kind of performance as Cirque du Soleil meets the ice, get ready to experience world-class entertainers as they take an icy stage by storm.

Crystal is the first-ever experience on ice from Cirque du Soleil. Professional ice skaters and acrobats take their new frozen playground to the next level with speed and fluidity as they challenge the laws of gravity with a flurry of unexpected acrobatics.

"Crystal breaks the codes of the traditional ice show by creating a unique form of entertainment," says Daniel Fortin, Cirque Du Soleil Executive Director of Creation for Crystal. "To reach this objective, we brought together the best experts in their respective worlds. With this new show, the audience will discover the infinite possibilities that ice adds to the prowess of circus arts," 

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 and 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. 

Originally composed of 20 street performers in 1984, Cirque du Soleil completely reinvented circus arts and went on to become a world leader in artistic entertainment. Established in Montreal, the Canadian organization has brought wonder and delight to over 180 million spectators with 42 productions that have taken place in close to 450 cities in 60 countries.
