The award-winning Imperial Ice Stars make a welcome return to New Zealand with a stunning new interpretation of Sleeping Beauty on Ice, as part of their 10th Anniversary World Tour.
Set to the magnificent music of Tchaikovsky, this Sleeping Beauty on Ice brings a new take – and some new twists - to the classic fairytale love story, with exhilarating choreography and innovative staging from Tony Mercer, the world-renowned director of theatre-on-ice.
The 18 World, European and National Championship level skaters push the boundaries of contemporary ice dance with their skill and athleticism, combining daring leaps, throws, and never-seen-before multi-person lifts with beautiful fluid ice dancing, all performed in the intimate setting of a frozen theatre stage.
With lavish new costumes, sumptuous sets incorporating a dual level skating surface, spectacular flying sequences, and dramatic fire effects, Sleeping Beauty on Ice is a theatrical experience suitable for all ages, from 3 to 103.
During the last decade, The Imperial Ice Stars have enthralled audiences in 27 countries across five continents, gaining a worldwide following and establishing an unrivalled reputation for marrying well-loved classical scores with breath-taking ice dance and creative and powerful story-telling.
Their last New Zealand tour, with The Nutcracker on Ice in 2012, earned them nightly standing ovations and five star praise from audiences and critics alike.
Whether you’ve seen The Imperial Ice Stars’ Sleeping Beauty on Ice before or have yet to experience the thrill of world-class ice skating up close in a theatre, this new adrenaline-rich production will bring you to the very edge of your seat…
