So when I was a teenager I pictured myself a bit of an ice skater. My poor mother ferried me back and forth to the ice rink from the ages of 14 to 18, and eventually I was able to drive myself to practices. Then studying and life got in the way – and I never became the Nancy Kerrigan I had pictured for myself.
Now I get to watch the world-famous Imperial Ice Stars, who have 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, as they land their double axels in Jozi!
This years performance is Cinderella On Ice, and it will be my first time seeing the Imperial Stars in action. Excited…hell, yes!!!
This piece is one of the most artistically challenging ice shows ever created with a dramatic new interpretation of the classic tale, conceived and choreographed by award-winning ice director Tony Mercer, together with three of the world’s most respected ice coaches – Evgeny Platov, dual Olympic gold medallist and four-time World Champion; and the 2006 and 2007 ice dancing World Champions Albena Denkova and Maxim Staviski.
Performed on a specially-created stage, frozen at minus 15 degrees Celsius, Cinderella On Ice boasts stunning special effects including fire and rain, flying, magnificent projected scenery depicting a Siberian town square and a black and silver art deco theatre, and glorious costumes.
Enter a world of magic and dazzling skating brilliance; Cinderella On Ice is an unforgettable experience, guaranteed to take your breath away! The perfect Festive Season show for the whole family to enjoy!
