Cirque du Soleil Trenton

The Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton will present Cirque du Soleil’s “Crystal” in May 2020.

“Crystal,” the first Cirque du Soleil show to be presented in an ice rink, debuted in 2017 and will be presented at the Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton, May 20-23. Tickets go on sale Nov. 8 at 10 a.m., with pre-sales beginning Nov. 5 at 10 a.m. Visit

The show combines ice dancing with the kind of acrobatics, music and visual projections that Cirque du Soleil is known for. According to the Cirque du Soleil website, “Crystal, our misfit heroine, takes you on an exhilarating tale of self-discovery as she dives into a world of her own imagination. Feel the adrenaline as she soars through this surreal world to become what she was always destined to be: confident, curious, and creative.”

Shows are scheduled for May 20-23 at 7:30 p.m. as well as May 23 at 4 p.m.
