The world-famous Imperial Ice Stars, who won international acclaim and five-star reviews with their previous tours of The Sleeping Beauty on Ice and Swan Lake on Ice, are thrilling UK audiences once more with their brand new production, Cinderella on Ice, which glides onto Northampton’s Derngate stage from Tuesday 31 March to Saturday 4 April.
In this new interpretation of a classic tale, The Imperial Ice Stars tell the story of Cinderella, a humble chorus dancer who is thrust into the spotlight as a prima ballerina and captivates the handsome Lord Mayor’s son, the most eligible bachelor in town, with her graceful performance. Despite rival attempts by her stepsisters to steal his heart, the kindly Watchmakers and Gypsy Fortune Teller ensure that true love triumphs.
The Imperial Ice Stars specialise in performing theatrical ice skating in the intimacy of the theatre. They are renowned for their innovation and daring on the ice and their unique style of story-telling. Their latest show continues to break new ground in ice dancing. Stunning skating feats, some only seen in Olympic arenas and some never attempted before, are performed within the confines of a frozen theatre stage.
The 25-strong cast of Olympic, World, European and National Championship skaters comprise the cream of Russian skating talent. The production boasts one of the most lavish sets ever created for a theatrical ice show, incorporating a Siberian village square and art deco theatre, magical special effects including fire and rain, flying and state of the art projection, and there over 70 opulent costumes.
Enter a world of magic and dazzling skating brilliance, for an unforgettable experience, guaranteed to take your breath away, when Cinderella on Ice comes to Royal & Derngate from Tuesday 31 March to Saturday 4 April with performances at 7.30pm nightly and matinees at 2.30pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
