As most of you know last week I attended the premier show Cirque Du Soliel Axel at the Heritage Bank Center.
Axel is only 2nd on ice show Cirque has done in 35 years. The show includes 85 cast and crew members from all over the world!
Axel the star of the show sang original songs as well as hits from bands such as The Bee Gees!
The choreography was amazing show on ice, the skaters could do any move you would see on in Olympic competition as well as acrobats with their skates on.
During my backstage tour I was able to watch the performers get ready for the premier, practice stunts, choreography, and see some of the costumes for the performance. For this show they have around 500 costume pieces that come to every city with them! Crazy right?
They also have cooks and kitchen setup to help keep the performers and crew fed through out their stay.
One of my favorite things from the show that I got to see a sneak of behind the scenes is the Russian swing, this is the first time it has ever been performed on ice, so for me it makes it even more special to watch!
Also my other favorite scene was when the performers were using the chain for their performance. I love aerial silks it’s one of my favorite things to watch and I’ve never seen it done on chains but it was completely amazing!
If you have never seen a cirque Du Soliel show I definitely recommend trying to catch one when it comes to town. They are by far one of my favorite types of shows to attend.
