The Prudential Center in Newark will present “Crystal,” a Cirque du Soleil show that blends circus art with ice skating, June 16-19. Tickets go on sale April 4 at 10 a.m., with pre-sales already having begun. Visit ticketmaster.com.
According to Cirque du Soleil, this show “invites you to suspend reality and glide into a world that springs to colorful life with astounding visual projections and a soundtrack that seamlessly blends popular music with the signature sound of Cirque du Soleil. This show is suitable for all ages.”
Reviewing the show for The Montreal Gazette in 2017, Brendan Kelly wrote: “The ice breaks early in ‘Crystal,’ the new Cirque du Soleil show, as the title character quite literally falls through the ice on a frozen lake and enters a parallel universe. And the Cirque breaks the ice figuratively as well, scoring big time with its very first show on an NHL-size ice surface.
” ‘Crystal’ … is a lot of fun, effortlessly blending the eye-popping acrobatics of the Cirque with the blade action of an ice show.”
Shows are scheduled for Thurs.-Fri., June 16-17 at 7:30 p.m.; Sat., June 18 at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sun., June 19 at 1 p.m.
