Cirque du Soleil returns to Tampa

Cirque du Soleil Returns To Tampa Bay with “CRYSTAL” — a breakthrough ice experience

Always thrilling and captivating, Cirque du Soleil returns to the Tampa Bay area in time for the holidays. CRYSTAL, the first-ever on ice production by Cirque du Soleil, will be at the Amalie Arena for five days, from Wednesday, Dec. 19 – Sunday, Dec. 23, 2018. The unique arena production showcases synchronized and freestyle ice skating, alongside circus disciplines such as swinging trapeze, hand balancing on chairs and hand to hand.

CRYSTAL fuses circus arts and the world of ice skating in a stunning new production, that will take the audience on a journey into a surreal world, where figure skating blends with acrobatics and aerial feats, on their new frozen playground. The ice skaters and acrobats perform with speed and fluidity, as they challenge the laws of gravity with never-before-seen acrobatics. 

Directed by Shana Carroll and Sebastien Soldevila, Crystal, the misfit heroine, takes the audience on an exhilarating tale of self-discovery, as she dives into a world of her own imagination. Feel the adrenaline as she soars through this surreal world to become what she was always destined to be: confident, liberated, and empowered. CRYSTAL invites the audience to suspend reality and glide into a world that springs to colorful life, with astounding visual projections and a soundtrack that seamlessly blends popular music with the signature sound of Cirque du Soleil.
