In Crystal skaters will perform acrobatics on the ice and in the air, seamlessly combining multiple disciplines for a world-class audience experience. Synchronized, freestyle, figure and extreme skating are featured alongside circus disciplines such as the swinging trapeze, aerial straps and hand-to-hand. The director said the result is an adrenaline-packed show for the whole family that pushes the boundaries.

Watch world-class ice skaters and acrobats explore their new frozen playground with speed and fluidity as they challenge the laws of gravity with never-before-seen acrobatics. Cirque du Soleil’s 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 prowesses.

The show schedule is April 18 at 7:30 p.m., April 19 at 7:30 p.m., April 20 at 4 and 7:30 p.m., April 21 at 4 and 7:30 p.m. and April 22 at 1:30 and 5 p.m. For more information on tickets visit www.ValleyFirstTix.com.
