A SimplyGrand du Soleil Production Is Coming Our Way

The legendary Cirque du Soleil will soon be bringing its new, original arena creation to Ralph Engelstad Arena!

Cirque du Soleil's CRYSTAL explores the artistic limits of ice for the first time in the company’s 34-year history. This unique production pushes boundaries of performance by combining stunning skating and acrobatic feats that defy the imagination. CRYSTAL will perform in Grand Forks from Wednesday, September 26 through Sunday, September 30, for seven shows.

This simply grand show features an international cast of world-class skaters and gymnasts performing acrobatics both on the ice and in the air, flawlessly combining multiple disciplines for one amazing audience experience. Synchronized skating, freestyles figures and extreme skating are featured alongside circus disciplines such as swinging trapeze and aerial traps and hand to hand. The result is an adrenaline-packed show for the whole family that pushes the boundaries and surpasses all expectations!

Follow Crystal, the lead character, on an exhilarating tale of self-discovery as she dives into a world of her own imagination. Feel the passion 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 fantasy that springs to colorful life with astounding visual projections and a soundtrack that harmoniously blends today’s popular music with the signature sound of Cirque.

Tickets for CRYSTAL are available through either Ticketmaster or the Ralph Engelstad Arena Box Office. They range in price from $45 to $120.
