Cirque du Soleil coming to the Ralph

Cirque du Soleil will present its first ice production, "Crystal," on Sept. 26-30 at the Ralph Engelstad Arena, according to an announcement from arena officials.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. May 11 for the general public.

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Sept. 26-29; 4 p.m. Sept. 29, and 1:30 and 5:30 p.m. Sept. 30.

Performers in the Crystal show explore the artistic limits of ice for the first time in the Cirque du Soleil's history, the news release said.

Gymnasts and skaters perform acrobatics on the ice and in the air, combining multiple disciplines such as synchronized skating, freestyle figure-skating and acrobatics with swinging trapeze, aerial traps, and hand-to-hand stunts.

The show follows the tale of Crystal, the show's lead character, who's on a journey of self-discovery into a world of her own imagination.
