Storyline and Theme
Crystal is a misfit with her head in the clouds, a dreamer looking for something more in her life. One day, felling misunderstood and out of sync with the world, she ventures out on a frozen pond and falls through the ice. In this underwater world of her own imagination, she was a vision: she sees a reflection of herself - her alter ego - that guides her, showing her a distorted version of her life. Her reflection tries to wake her up to er own genius and creativity. Through her writing, Crystal releases the potential of her hidden talent and transforms the world around her with stroke of her pen. Having summoned the strength to face reality, Crystal ultimately breaks through the ice, stronger then ever.

The show Crystal is about looking at things from fresh angles, peeking through the veneer of everyday life, reframing one's daily reality to see what one might have missed. Sometimes the only way to appreciate things is to look at them sideways. Discovering one's individuality and uniqueness requires venturing out on thin ice.

Melding Circus Arts and Ice Sports
Cirque du Soleil Crystal explores the very essence of skating, asking how they can bring their signature style of acrobatics into yet uncharted territory, a sheet of ice, and blue the boundaries between gliding sports and circus arts.

In Crystal, gymnasts and skaters performs acrobatics on the ice and in the air, melding both worlds together. Disciplines such as swinging trapeze, aerial straps, and hand to hand are fused together with disciplines and as synchro, freestyle, figure, and extreme skating on ramps, with a dash of all-out speed skating. Figure skaters learn to be pushers on Chinese oles, while circus artists learn to skate, and extreme skaters learn figure skating moves.
