Cirque du Soleil: Axel coming to Abbotsford in June

Ice show running seven shows in total from June 4 to 7 at Abbotsford Centre

Cirque du Soleil hits the ice at the Abbotsford Centre this coming June.

The live entertainment company is bringing Axel to town, which features spectacular skating, breathtaking acrobatics on ice, astonishing visual effects, and an upbeat original soundtrack.

The story tells the tale of Axel, a young graphic artist and musician, who 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 super villain 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 characters and the audience 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 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 fans 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.

Axel is the 48th original production of Cirque du Soleil and the second on-ice experience by the company.

The show runs nightly from June 4 to 7, with three additional afternoon shows on June 6 and 7. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.ca.
