International ice dance sensation the Imperial Ice Stars bring the Toronto premiere of Sleeping Beauty on Ice to the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts for three shows only: Friday, November 20 at 7:30pm and Saturday, November 21 at 2:00pm and 7:30pm. Tickets for this spectacular ice ballet, featuring twenty-three of the best figure skaters in the world, can be purchased by calling the Box Office at 1-855-872-SONY (7669), visiting http://www.sonycentre.ca or in person at the Sony Centre Box Office.
The award-winning Imperial Ice Stars, making a triumphant return to Toronto for the first time in seven years, are the world’s leading performers of theatrical ice-skating. Acclaimed Artistic Director Tony Mercer teamed up with distinguished Russian Olympic coach Tatiana Tarasova to take contemporary ice dance to a new level, inspiring the Olympic, World, European and National Championship skaters (with more than 200 medals between them) to perform feats so daring and complex they haven’t yet been named!
Four tons of crushed ice will turn the stage of the Sony Centre into a magical ice rink where the ensemble will glide, defy gravity and soar through the air! Ballet on blades at speeds of up to 50 kilometres per hour!
Set to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent music, Sleeping Beauty on Ice will captivate audiences of all ages as it tells this timeless fairytale love story through astonishing high-speed leaps and throws, graceful and sublime ice dancing, awe-inspiring acrobatics and aerial gymnastics, stunning stilt skating and jaw-dropping visual effects.
My daughter shares my enthusiasm and intrigue for the arts, and is especially enthralled with the sounds of Tchaikovsky.
Sleeping Beauty is a drama and impassioned tale of true love conquering all, mixed with volatile power struggles and visions idealizing lives beyond their own.
“The Imperial Ice Stars are to skating what Cirque du Soleil is to circus – inspiring, original and great theatre.”
– SUNDAY TELEGRAPH, SYDNEY (Sleeping Beauty on Ice)
“Skilful, exciting and utterly beautiful· a cut above the rest in every way.”
– THE SCOTSMAN, UK (Sleeping Beauty on Ice)
“If blood-stirring, bravura skating is what you’re after, look no further.”
– THE TIMES, UK (Sleeping Beauty on Ice)
