San Antonio (Monday, October 9, 2017) – Cirque du Soleil is thrilled to venture into uncharted territory with its brand-new creation, Crystal by Cirque du Soleil, exploring the artistic attributes of ice for the very first time. Specifically created for arenas, the state-of-the-art production will create a fresh innovative experience, pushing the boundaries once again by combining outstanding skating and sliding, remarkable aesthetics and acrobatic feats that defy the imagination. Crystal by Cirque du Soleil will be at the AT&T Center in San Antonio for five shows only from Oct. 13-15, 2017. 

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.

Show Schedule: October 13 – 15, 2017:

  • Friday, October 13 at 7:30 PM
  • Saturday, October 14 at 3:30 PM and 7:30 PM
  • Sunday, October 15 at 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM
