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.

In Cirque du Soleil AXEL, the music serves as a narrative thread guiding the characters and audience as they journey with Axel and Lei to discover that true love shines even brighter than the most radiant star. Inspired by the atmosphere of big arena concerts, AXEL is a high-energy and exhilarating experience where acrobatic and skating performances are highlighted by Axel’s pop music, visual effects, lighting and laser lights show.

This new Cirque du Soleil creation brings a new look to the world of ice skating by introducing 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.
