About Cirque du Soleil AXEL
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. Spectacular ice skating, breath-taking acrobatics, pop-rock music and vibrant visuals create an energetic and immersive experience for the whole family.
In Cirque du Soleil AXEL, the music serves a narrative thread guiding characters and audiences as they journey with Axel and Lei to discover that true love shines even brighter than the most radiant star.
This newest Cirque du Soleil creation brings a new look to the world of ice skating by introducing 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-caliber ice skating of all kinds.
Cirque du Soleil AXEL is the 48th original production of Cirque du Soleil, part of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, and its second on-ice experience.
