Carmen on Ice
Direct from a summer season at the Iceberg Skating Palace in Sochi and as part of a Worldwide Tour, the spectacular Carmen on Ice glides into The SSE Arena, Wembley for a strictly limited run from Wednesday 11th until Sunday 15th January 2017.
The sensational production brings together over 60 World, Olympic and European championship skaters, ballet and flamenco dancers, circus performers, musicians and singers who will astound with their world class skating, awe-inspiring acrobatics, sublime dancing and singing. Set against extraordinary visual imagery on the ice, on the stage, in the air and through 3D projections, Carmen on Ice will thrill and enchant audiences of all ages.
Widely regarded as the undisputed leading creator of ice productions, Carmen on Ice is spectacularly brought to life by award winning director and choreographer and world champion skater Ilya Averbukh. Over the last decade his ice creations have toured the world 11 times and have been seen by over 6 million people on stage and on television. He was an ambassador for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi 2014 and created Small Stories of a Big City which played in Kensington Gardens during the 2012 Olympics in London.
Based on Georges Bizet’s brilliant score contemporary composer Roman Ignatiev’s original musical version of Carmen on Ice gives a modern edge to the passionate tale of lust, seduction and betrayal.
