The Imperial Ice Stars will take to the stage at the Artscape Opera House this week with a dynamic new interpretation of its award-winning masterpiece Swan Lake on Ice.

The acclaimed production is part of a world tour celebrating the company’s 10th anniversary.

Performed in the intimate setting of a frozen theatre stage, to Tchaikovsky’s famous score, this production of Swan Lake on Ice introduces a new prologue to the classic tale, humanising 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 stylish dancing on ice from artistic director Tony Mercer, widely regarded as the world’s leading creator of theatre on ice.

The 24 Olympic, world, European and national championship skaters, who between them hold more than 250 competition medals, tell the timeless tale through mind-blowing high-speed leaps and throws – and daring manoeuvres so complex they haven’t yet been named – coupled with graceful ice dancing.V Swan Lake on Ice will run from Thursday 14 to Sunday 31 January. Tickets are available at Computicket.
