Cirque Du Soleil - Behind the scenes at crystal

Cirque Du Soleil was in Baltimore this past month and we had a great opportunity to partner with their PR company to promote their latest show, Crystal! As their website explains, Crystal is not just an ice show, it’s the very first experience on ice from Cirque du Soleil. You can watch world-class ice skaters and acrobats claim their new frozen playground with speed and fluidity as they challenge the laws of gravity with never-before-seen acrobatics. A new kind of performance as Cirque du Soleil meets the ice to defy all expectations.

During their visit, two skaters did a takeover of our Instagram story - this included Scott Smith, a Baltimore native! Their takeover showed a few places around the Inner Harbor where the skaters were doing short versions of their performance and displaying their hand made costumes. 

Our team also had the chance to get a glimpse of the massive choreographed effort Cirque Du Soleil has to do coordinate behind the scenes for each individual show. Everything from hand made costumes, exercise equipment, props, ice skate sharpening equipment, video, audio, lights, etc.  has to be set-up and broken down within days!
