One of the world’s best known circus troupes is taking Peoria for the next five days.
The set up today for Crystal was underway Wednesday by Cirque du Soleil at the Peoria Civic Center.
It’s the first performance on ice by this longtime audience favorite.
This one features a young woman, crystal, as the main character.
“There’s a bit of a Crystal in each of us where there is a point in time where we feel a little bit different or we’re looking for ourselves and who we are,” said Julie Des Marais, touring publicist.
The cast for Crystal by Cirque du Soleil features 90 people, including 43 cast members and 34 technicians.
It plays Peoria through Sunday.
