The world-famous Imperial Ice Stars, who have won international critical acclaim with their previous tours of The Sleeping Beauty on Ice and Swan Lake on Ice, are set to thrill once more with their brand new production, Cinderella on Ice.

More than two million people across five continents, from London to Auckland and Toronto to Cape Town, have been swept to their feet by The Imperial Ice Stars’ adrenaline-infused performances.

New Zealand audiences will be the first in the world to see this dazzling display of skating brilliance from 23 Olympic, World, National and European Championship skaters. The Imperial Ice Stars are renowned for their unique brand of innovative skating and story-telling, as they continue to break new ground in the genre of ice dancing with daring feats never seen before – and all performed in the intimacy of a frozen theatre stage.

Cinderella on Ice has been conceived and choreographed by Tony Mercer, widely regarded as the world’s leading creator of theatre on ice, together with Evgeny Platov, dual Olympic gold medallist and four time World Champion, and Alexander Zhulin, Olympic silver and bronze medallist and World Champion.

The production boasts special effects rivalling Cirque du Soleil, including fire and rain; lavish sets depicting Siberian snowscapes and gypsy carnivals from one of Australia’s top scenic designers; and glorious costumes from Albina Gabueva, head designer at Moscow’s famed Stanislavsky Theatre.

In this retelling of the traditional story, Cinderella is a prima ballerina whose dancing captivates the Mayor’s son.

Despite rival attempts by her stepsisters to steal his heart, the kindly Watchmakers and Gypsy Fortuneteller ensure that true love triumphs.
