World-renowned entertainment company Cirque du Soleil will bring its new show Crystal to Aberdeen for the first time next year.
Premiering in the UK, the firm will showcase its first acrobatic ice performance in the north-east’s new entertainment venue P&J Live from March 19 to March 22, 2020.
Gliding into the arena for five days, it will be the first time the one-of-a-kind show will be performed in the country.
The new production, which is Cirque de Soleil’s 42nd original show since 1984, combines jaw dropping acrobatic and circus arts with ice skates and promises to take audiences on a magical journey on its frozen playground.
Kicking off in Sheffield, P&J Live bosses are thrilled the show will be heading as far north as Aberdeen and to the new venue.
Louise Stewart, head of entertainment at P&J Live, said: “We are thrilled to bring Cirque du Soleil to the north-east for the first time, especially since it’s their first acrobatic ice show in the UK.
“We expect this to be a spectacular experience for all and we can’t wait for the arena to be transformed by the magic Cirque du Soleil will bring.”
The international cast of Crystal features 43 artists, along with more than 40 crew members from 24 different countries.
Created by Shana Carroll and Sebastien Soldevila, the show takes audiences on an exhilarating tale of self-discovery as the heroine, Crystal, dives into a world of her own imagination.
World-class ice skaters will dazzle audiences with performances which will include crazy flips, twists and jumps at breakneck speed. There will also be ballroom dancing scenes with an elegant skating pas de deux.
The magical show invites audiences to suspend reality and venture into a world with astonishing visual projections and an original score that seamlessly blends popular music with the signature sounds of Cirque du Soleil which is suitable for all ages.
General tickets go on sale on Friday, September 20 at 9am, and venue pre-sale tickets go on sale Thursday, September 19 from 9am.
