Sleeping Beauty on Ice at The Lowry, Salford ****

Efforts to widen the attraction of an art form are not always immediately popular. Musicals, for example, tend to be regarded as the poor relation of Opera.

Ice shows have an undeserved reputation as lowbrow entertainment.

The Sleeping Beauty, by the Imperial Russian Ice Stars, blows that idea out of the water. Elegant, sophisticated, stylish and above all, supremely accomplished, this show is stronger because it is faithful to the original Tchaikovsky ballet.
