Experience live music, extraordinary skating
and stunning visuals in Cirque du Soleil AXEL
It is with great excitement that Cirque du Soleil announces its new on ice spectacle that will spin you into the vibrant world of Axel. Join Axel and his band as they take on a new journey inspired by music and graphic arts. This new production features spectacular skating, breathtaking acrobatics on ice, astonishing visual effects, and an upbeat original soundtrack.
An inspirational and musical storyline
Axel, a young graphic artist and musician, dives into his hand drawn universe as he falls in love with the captivating Lei. Together they jet off on a fast-moving quest to retrieve the stolen light from the supervillain Vï. In this epic fantasy, graphic art and music intertwine to create the super charged world of AXEL.
In Cirque du Soleil AXEL, the music serves as a narrative thread guiding our characters and our audiences as they journey with Axel and Lei to discover that true love shines even brighter that the most radiant star. Inspired by the atmosphere of big arena concerts, AXEL is a high-energy and exhilarating experience where acrobatic and skating performances are supported by Axel’s pop music, visual effects, lighting and laser show.
This newest Cirque du Soleil creation brings a new look to the world of ice skating by introducing us to the discipline of freestyle skating. This fresh take on skating combined with the skill and power of traditional pairs, solo, and adagio work allows Cirque du Soleil to set the stage for high calibre ice skating of all kinds.
