Cirque du Soleil Crystal Pittsburgh Tickets
Cirque du Soleil Crystal Pittsburgh TicketsCirque du Soleil got its start in a small resort town in Quebec in the 1980s. The company started off as a small group of stilt walkers, fire eaters, clowns and acrobats. Though they were all professionals when it came to circus arts, traditional circuses simply weren't for these performers. By 1984, this unique group was touring the province of Quebec. By 1987, Cirque du Soleil was touring the US with a show called We Reinvent the Circus. They were really pushing the boundaries of what a circus could be, and people were intrigued by that. Unlike traditional circuses, Cirque du Soleil shows often have a narrative component. They never feature animals. Cirque's shows have always been artistic, somewhat mysterious and designed with adults in mind. With Crystal, Cirque du Soleil took the circus arts to the ice for the first time. Crystal is just another reminder of the way this company has expanded the definition of what a circus can be and do.
More Than an Ice ShowCirque du Soleil approached Crystal the way it approaches everything, with openness and a desire to excel. Crystal marks Cirque's first ice show. This production is designed for NHL-sized ice rinks, and everyone in the cast of the show is in skates at some point. As Cirque is based in Canada, some of the acrobats and clowns already have some skating background. Others agreed to learn, and everyone was trained in part by the legendary Canadian figure skater Kurt Browning. With Crystal, Cirque has helped take the circus to a new and unusual environment. They've also taken the idea of a family ice show up market. Unlike traditional Ice Capades or Disney on Ice offerings, this show isn't just designed with children in mind. There are acrobatics to wow people of all ages and an inspiring storyline for everyone.
