Performed on a frozen theatre stage to Tchaikovsky’s famous and well-loved score, this production of Swan Lake On Ice introduces a new take to the classic tale, bringing to life the legend of a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer. The show features exhilarating new choreography and some of the world’s most amazing dancing on ice!
What is it?
The Imperial Ice Stars are known for bringing well-loved classical scores to life, combined with breathtaking choreography and romantic narrative, creating an awe-inspiring ice dancing and dramatic extravaganza. In addition to the stunning acrobatics and aerial gymnastics, the spectacular new pyrotechnic effects add an extra dramatic and mysterious aspect to the theatrical experience.
Swan Lake On Ice creates a more realistic version of the much-loved tale, reworked with stunning new choreography allowing for more contemporary skating manoeuvres, challenging the skaters to reach for new heights. The 24 Olympic, World, European and National Championship level skaters tell the timeless tale through mind-blowing, high-speed leaps and throws, and daring manoeuvres so complex that they haven’t been named yet, coupled with graceful and sublime ice dancing.
During the last 10 years, the award-winning troupe has entertained and wowed audiences in 27 countries across five continents, gaining a unrivalled reputation for their sophisticated versions of classic works. Their previous world tours (including Cinderella on Ice, Sleeping Beauty on Ice, and The Nutcracker on Ice) have been greeted and applauded with nightly standing ovations and five-star reviews. Swan Lake On Ice is a performance you don’t want to miss!
