Axel, a young graphic artist and musician, dives into his hand-drawn universe as he falls in love with 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 supercharged world of “Axel.”
In “Cirque du Soleil Axel,” the music serves a narrative thread guiding characters and audiences as they journey with Axel and Lei to discover 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 and combines traditional pairs, solo, and adagio work. Striking visual projections show the fantastic worlds Axel creates with a pen, a sketchbook and imagination.
