Lindsey Stirling is one of the world’s most amazing and gifted pop culture performers in the world, bringing the violin from its traditional role in classical music into the fore as a solo instrument in her imaginative and often ground-breaking music videos. Today the award-winning violinist, songwriter, dancer and producer has completely outdone herself in this beautiful post apocalyptic performance of her original song The Arena.

Before playing this video, you may have to temporarily pause the Krypton Radio stream using the controller to the upper right.


Lindsey actually plays two characters in this video, both the violinist, and the acrobatic lead dancer in an arena faceoff in a wasteland caravan. Dancing with co-star Derek Hough, Ms. Stirling demonstrates primal energy, sexuality, mystery and legend,  all combining to create the best on-screen performance of Lindsey Stirling’s career.
