• Cirque du Soleil's first ice show skates into Spectrum Center this week


    Cirque du Soleil is returning to Charlotte with its coolest arena show yet. “Crystal” blends circus arts and the world of ice skating in a new one-of-a-kind arena production that takes fans on a journey into a whimsical frozen playground where figure skating mingles with acrobatics and aerial feats.

    “Crystal” is coming to the Spectrum Center for eight performances, July 17-21.
