Set to Tchaikovsky’s well-loved score, the 23-strong cast of Olympic, World, European and National Championship-level skaters will astound and mesmerise audiences with their adrenaline-rich, dramatic performance, in the intimate setting of a frozen theatre stage. The show features exhilarating choreography and some of the world’s most stylish ice-dancing from Artistic Director Tony Mercer, widely regarded as the world’s leading creator of theatre on ice.
The skaters, who between them hold more than 250 competition medals, will tell the classic love story through precision leaps and throws – and daring manoeuvres so complex they haven’t yet been named – coupled with graceful and sublime ice dancing.
In addition, awe-inspiring acrobatics, flying sequences, aerial gymnastics and spectacular fire-on-ice add drama and mystery to the theatrical experience. The dazzling and sophisticated costumes are designed by renowned costumier Albina Gabueva of Moscow’s Stanislavsky Theatre, and made by the Bolshoi Ballet’s famous costume cutters.
For over a decade, the Imperial Ice Stars have enthralled almost four million people in 27 countries across five continents, from Toronto to Tokyo, Sydney to Singapore and Cape Town to Cyprus. The award-winning troupe has built a worldwide following and established an unrivalled reputation for their sophisticated portrayals of classic works. Previous world tours (Sleeping Beauty on Ice, Swan Lake on Ice, Cinderella on Ice and The Nutcracker on Ice) have been greeted with nightly standing ovations and five-star reviews.
The popular troupe is excited to return to Hong Kong after performing The Nutcracker on Ice here in 2012. The last time Hong Kong had a chance to see Swan Lake on Ice was in 2007.
“Whether you’ve seen The Imperial Ice Stars before, or have yet to experience the thrill of world-class ice skating in the intimacy of the theatre, this dramatic new ice interpretation of one of the most popular ballets will take your breath away,” said Mr Cundall.
