The new Cirque du Soleil Raleigh show, Crystal, opens at the PNC Arena August 15 and runs through August 19th. They added an element you have never seen from Cirque before and it sounds amazing!

There is a new Cirque du Soleil Raleigh show opening this month and it looks awesome! Cirque du Soleil Crystal, opens at the PNC Arena August 15 and runs through August 19th and if you ask me this show is not to be missed!

When Quidam was in town, we had a fantastic time and were in complete awe of the Cirque performers. I have no doubt this show will provide many jaw-dropping moments because on top of the amazing athletic abilities and stunts they do, Crystal is on ICE for the first time ever!

**I will be provided with media passes to see this show on opening night. All opinions are my own.

About the Cirque du Soleil Raleigh Show – CRYSTAL

Something I love about Cirque du Soleil is that there is always an amazing story alongside the incredible visuals. I love diving deep into a great character story and CRYSTAL is no different. Here is the official synopsis:

Follow CRYSTAL, the lead character, 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 at high speed to become what she was always destined to be: confident, liberated, and empowered. CRYSTAL invites you 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.

Beyond the back story, you’ll see gymnasts and skaters perform acrobatics on the ice and in the air with synchronized skating, freestyles figures, and extreme skating are featured alongside circus disciplines such as swinging trapeze, aerial traps and hand to hand. OK I think we can all agree that sounds amazing. Am I right?!
