From September 24 to 27, a troupe of the world’s best skaters are set to grace the frozen dais of the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands to present a stunning new interpretation of Sleeping Beauty on Ice.
As part of their 10th Anniversary World Tour, the award-winning Imperial Ice Stars bring a new take – and some new twists – to the classic love story with exhilarating choreography by Tony Mercer, set to music virtuoso Tchaikovsky’s oeuvres.
Mercer’s interpretation of the well-known fairytale brings a few surprises: traditionally a wicked fairy, for the first time, Carabosse is a menacing male who spikes Princess Aurora’s birthday drink.
With lavish, elegant costumes, including some stunning LED illuminated effects, sumptuous sets, spectacular flying sequences, and dramatic fire effects – Sleeping Beauty on Ice is a theatrical experience suitable for all ages, from three to 103.
24 world, European and national championship-level skaters are ready to push the boundaries of contemporary ice dance with their skill and athleticism, combining audacious high-speed leaps, throws and lifts with beautiful fluid ice dancing, all in the intimate setting of a magical location for a classic fairytale on ice.
