Dazzling production opens at Mayflower, Southampton

08 Mar 13

Direct from a worldwide tour, international ice dance sensation The Imperial Ice Stars make a triumphant return to the UK with THE SLEEPING BEAUTY ON ICE. This dazzling production opens at Mayflower Southampton Theatre on 12TH March for 8 performances only.

The Imperial Ice Stars last performed in the UK in May 2012, when they brought their award-winning production of Swan Lake on Ice to one of the world’s most prestigious venues, the Royal Albert Hall. Over 8000 people experienced their creative and powerful story-telling through spectacular ice dance during a limited run of only 5 performances.

The Imperial Ice Stars are renowned for marrying well-loved classical scores with breath-taking choreography and romantic narrative, creating a fusion of adrenaline-rich ice dancing and dramatic performance. Set to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent music, The Sleeping Beauty on Ice tells the timeless fairytale love story through mind-blowing high-speed leaps and throws, graceful and sublime ice dancing, awe-inspiring acrobatics and aerial gymnastics, stunning stilt skating and spectacular visual effects.

Acclaimed Artistic Director Tony Mercer, widely recognised as the world’s leading creator of theatre-on-ice, has teamed with the distinguished Russian Olympic coach to take contemporary ice dance to a new level, inspiring the 26-strong cast of Olympic, World, European and National Championship skaters to further raise the bar with feats so daring and complex they haven’t yet been named!

Over the last 8 years, this award-winning troupe has performed over 2000 shows in more than 23 countries across five continents, gaining a worldwide following and establishing an unrivalled reputation for their sophisticated portrayals of classic works. Their previous world tours (Cinderella on Ice, Swan Lake on Ice and The Nutcracker on Ice) have been greeted with nightly standing ovations and five-star reviews.

The Sleeping Beauty on Ice will thrill and enchant audiences of all ages during 2013.
