Award-winning ice-skating troupe, Imperial Ice Stars bring their third stage musical production, Cinderella on Ice, to Cape Town. The “world-famous” Imperial Ice Stars won international critical acclaim and five-star reviews with their previous tours of The Sleeping Beauty on Ice, The Nutcracker on Ice and Swan Lake on Ice. One of the most artistically challenging ice show ever created, this new production is a dramatic interpretation of the classic tale, conceived and choreographed by award-winning ice director Tony Mercer, together with dual Olympic gold medalist and four-time World Champion, Evgeny Platov and the 2006 and 2007 ice dancing World Champions Albena Denkova and Maxim Staviski.
The Imperial Ice Stars specialise in performing theatrical ice skating in the intimacy of the theatre, and are known for their daring theatrics on the ice and unique style of story-telling. Cinderella on Ice features “breathtaking high speed throws and incredible lifts and lift sequences”. It is performed on a specially-created stage, frozen at minus 15 degress Celsius, and boasts special effects including fire and rain, flying, projected scenery depicting a Siberian town square and black and silver art deco theatre, and costumes from Albina Gabueva, head designer at Moscow’s famed Stanislavsky Theatre.
