The world-famous Imperial Ice Stars, who have won international critical acclaim with their innovative portrayals of The Sleeping Beauty on Ice and Swan Lake on Ice are set to thrill once more with a stunning new interpretation of Cinderella on Ice within the magical setting of the Royal Albert Hall.
Cinderella on Ice has been conceived and choreographed by the award-winning team of Tony Mercer, widely regarded as the world’s leading creator of contemporary theatre on ice, and Evgeny Platov, dual Olympic gold medallist and four-time world champion.
In a novel twist on the 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 Lord Mayor’s handsome son – the most eligible bachelor in town – with her graceful performance. Despite rival attempts by her ballerina stepsisters to steal his heart, engineered with true villainy by her stepmother – the local ballet mistress, true love triumphs thanks to the magical powers of the Gypsy Fortune Teller and Cinderella’s kindly father, the town’s Watchmaker.
The sophisticated production boasts opulent costumes, magnificent projected scenery and stunning special effects, including fire, rain and flying.
