Cirque du Soleil Crystal - creating drama on the ice
Given the unique topography of Cirque du Soleil Crystal, it was important to make sure the acrobats knew how to navigate this world of ice. Because of this, the Canadian figure skater Kurt Browning and the American ice dancers Benjamin Agosto were brought to ensure the nature of the ice was considered and the acrobats got the proper training. However, even with the experience these skaters possessed, both having won several world medals in their fields, the challenge of combining the creativity of cirque du soleil with the nature of the ice was an immense one. A mix of acrobats and skaters made up the team of performers and Cirque du Soleil was able to produce their first ever show on ice, complete with flips, tricks and a variety of aerial straps the audience has come to expect from just an elite performance.

The long road to worldwide fame
Humble beginnings for Cirque du Soleil saw the performing troupe, then known as Les Échassiers, struggling to make a living for themselves as they toured around Quebec in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Then, in 1983, they were invited to perform as part of the celebration of Jacques Cartier’s voyage to Canada. It was the 450th anniversary of the event and the performance troupe knew they had to do something amazing. So they put on a show and called it Le Grand Tour du Cirque du Soleil. In the following few years the show would ebb and flow as it found its footing but by the 1990s and 2000s it was shooting across the globe and building its number of shows. Its first European tour in 1990 took it to cities like London and since then the capital of England has seen various versions of the show performed at venues such as The O2 Arena and the London Royal Albert Hall. It wasn’t always smooth sailing for the performing acrobats and not every show was as popular as the others. But now with touring shows playing all around the world and numerous acrobats flying through the air, Cirque du Soleil is one of the most iconic acrobatic shows around. With the launch of Cirque du Soleil Crystal at Quebec’s Bell Centre in 2017, what the acrobats can do has only grown, and we really do not want you to miss out on this amazing experience.
