Cirque du Soleil Crystal Hoffman Estates Tickets
Cirque du Soleil Crystal Hoffman Estates TicketsCirque du Soleil is known for its innovative approach to circus arts. Cirque got its start in a Quebec resort town during the early 1980s. Originally, it was just a small, independent group of performers like jugglers, stilt-walkers and acrobats. The company was determined to be a different kind of circus. Cirque's shows are theatrical, with carefully designed sets, narratives and characters. There are never any animals in a Cirque du Soleil show. The company resonated with audiences and grew quickly. By 1987, Cirque du Soleil was touring the United States. In 1993, Cirque started its first Vegas residency with Mystere. Today, Cirque du Soleil is the largest theatrical producer in the world. Having conquered the stage and the big tent, Cirque du Soleil has turned its focus to new environments. They've tackled liquid water in one show. With Crystal, Cirque du Soleil wants to conquer the ice.
A Breakthrough Ice ExperienceCrystal is all about breakthroughs. This show is a breakthrough for Cirque du Soleil because it's their first ever ice show. In taking to the ice, Cirque wanted to challenge the limits of what a circus is and what an ice show can be. This show has been a big success in cities across North America, including Montreal, Minneapolis and San Antonio. All of Crystal's performers, even the jugglers and acrobats, are on skates during the show. This presented unique challenges. Acrobats and clowns needed to acquire skating skills for the show. Canadian skating legend Kurt Browning was one of the consultants who helped with this. Crystal is also about the breakthrough of the title character. She falls through the ice and, like Dorothy in Oz, has incredible experiences that teach her a lot about herself.
