While growing up, my parents sometimes took me and my brother to watch the show "Holiday on Ice" in my home country.
I remember being mesmerised by the movements, the ability to balance on the ice, the costumes, the magic of the shows. As a child it definitely made my childhood a bit more interesting, magical and beautiful.
I also know that, currently, most of you are thinking or preparing for summer holidays.
However if you wish to plan in advance some nice shows to watch with the children once you get back from the summer holidays, there will be some amazing ones around Luxembourg with some of the pest performers in the world.
Why not bring the children to admire these artists and give them a little bit of magic in their daily life? Here is a handy list so you know where to look for.
CRYSTAL! Cirque du Soleil
Cirque du Soleil is famous worldwide and some of the greatest shows have been performed by them.
A new experience called CRYSTAL! is coming close to Luxembourg:
Cologne, Germany 19-23 October 2022
Frankfurt, Germany 9-13 November 2022
CRYSTAL! is a unique arena spectacle, that combines circus high performance with the world of figure skating. The amazing new production takes the audience on a wondrous "icy" journey, where ice skating, sensational acrobatics and daredevil trapeze artists meet for the first time.
"Crystal" is also the title character, a young woman who escapes from reality into the glittering world of ice crystals in which she is reflected. On thin ice she develops her individuality and uniqueness. This 42nd original Cirque du Soleil production explores the artistic possibilities on ice. Never-before-seen performances move from the smooth course to the air, creating breathtaking illusions. World-class ice skaters and acrobats conquer the new playing surface with speed and fluidity, seemingly eliminating the laws of gravity.
CRYSTAL! is coming to Brussels, Belgium, as well, but the dates have not been announced yet.
