Sept. 26-30: Cirque du Soleil on ice

Cirque du Soleil is coming to Ralph Engelstad Arena with a brand-new arena creation. Cirque du Soleil’s Crystal explores the artistic limits of ice for the first time in the company’s 34-year history. Crystal will perform in Grand Forks from Wednesday through Sunday, Sept. 26-30, for seven shows.

In Crystal, gymnasts and skaters perform acrobatics on the ice and in the air, seamlessly combining multiple disciplines for a world class audience experience. Synchronized skating, freestyles figures, and extreme skating are featured alongside circus disciplines such as swinging trapeze, 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 adrenaline as she soars through this surreal world at high speed to become what she was always destined to be: confident, liberated, and empowered. 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.
