Cirque du Soleil is ditching the suburbs to make a very cool return to Washington with is ice performance, CRYSTAL. It’s exactly what you’re imagining: synchronized, freestyle and extreme skating alongside all of your favorite circus antics, like swinging trapeze, aerial straps and hand to hand.
Like all Cirque shows, CRYSTAL has a story. A misfit heroine, Crystal, dives into a world of her own imagination and takes audiences along with her on a ride of self discovery. Rest assured, there will be all the feels.
This mashup of ice-scapades and Cirque will have both world-class ice skaters and acrobats entertaining with never-before-seen performances. CRYSTAL’s surreal world blends figure skating blends with acrobatics and aerial feats… alongside some new sounds for Cirque infused with popular chart topping sounds.
CRYSTAL will perform at Capital One Arena from Wednesday, December 5th through 9th for 8 shows only:
- Wednesday, December 5 at 7:30 pm
- Thursday, December 6 at 7:30 pm
- Friday, December 7 at 7:30 pm
