Cirque du Soleil's "on-ice spectacle" AXEL is coming to Cincinnati early next year. The show — which mixes acrobatics, ice-skating, live music and visual effects — will be staged at the riverfront venue formerly known as U.S. Bank Arena Jan. 23-26.

Tickets for the six Cincinnati shows are available now via ticketmaster.com.


Here's the description of the AXEL show from a press release:

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.
