  48873F17-1D32-412F-ABEB-DD078F7AB8FEThis week, the world-renowned Cirque du Soleil creative team brings its newest show, Crystal by Cirque du Soleil, to the Chicago area. Described as an experience exploring the artistic attributes of ice for the very first time, Crystal by Cirque du Soleil was specifically created for arenas.

,     Crystal by Cirque du Soleil is a state-of-the-art production that creates a fresh innovative experience, by combining outstanding skating and sliding, remarkable aesthetics and acrobatic feats that defy the imagination. The press release describes the show by saying that “Crystal, the show’s main character, sets out on an exhilarating quest to fulfill her destiny as she dives into a world of her own imagination. She soars through this surreal world at high speed to become what she was always destined to be: confident, freed, empowered. Crystal is about looking at things from fresh angles, peeking through the veneer of everyday life, reframing one’s daily reality to see what one might have missed. Sometimes the only way to appreciate things is to look at them sideways. Discovering one’s individuality and uniqueness requires venturing out on thin ice.”

     Crystal is a special treat for those living in the North and Northwest suburbs. The performance all take place at the Sears Centre Arena, 5333 Prairie Stone Parkway, Hoffman Estates. There are just six performances from November 16 – 19.  The show schedule is
