SLEEPING BEAUTY ON ICE (article first published : 2005-09-26)

Former Olympic champion ice skaters will be whizzing around the opera stage of Pretoria’s State Theatre in the Imperial Ice Stars tale of Sleeping Beauty on Ice presented by Pieter Toerien and James Cundall for Lunchtime Productions.

The production will be performed to the magnificent music of Tchaikovsky and boasts 23 Olympic, World, European and National Championship skaters who have between them won over 210 competition medals. Unfortunately, the production will not be coming to KwaZulu-Natal but those wishing to see the show can travel to the State Theatre Opera in Pretoria where the show runs from October 12 to November 6 or to Cape Town where the show runs at the Artscape Opera from November 21 to December 10.

The colourful show appeals to a wide audience and its spectacle and gymnastics compare to Riverdance and Cirque du Soleil. South African audiences are assured that Sleeping Beauty On Ice is like no other ice show in the world. The company has managed to perform jaw-dropping skating feats normally seen only in Olympic-sized arenas within the intimacy of a theatre stage including triple flips, triple-toe loops, double axles, death spirals, camel spins, triple-throw axles and lifts galore.

Book at Computicket or group bookings available on 011 511 1988 or 021 438 3301.
