NORFOLK, Va. – So cool!

Cirque du Soleil’s “CRYSTAL” will perform at the Scope Arena for six shows from Thursday, November 29-Sunday, December 2. It is the company’s 42nd original production and first-ever on-ice production.

In “CRYSTAL,” spectators are invited to suspend reality as they follow the titular character on a tale of self-discovery as she dives into a world of her own imagination.

Gymnasts and skaters perform acrobatics both on ice and in the air. Synchronized, freestyle and extreme skating are all featured alongside traditional circus disciplines such as swinging trapeze, aerial straps and hand-to-hand.
