On the bright side, Mr R and I saw a FANTASTIC performance of Swan Lake on Ice. Ooooh! It was magic!
If I thought Swan Lake – the ballet- was beautiful, then this performance was absolutely breath-taking! You can tell I loved it because I’ve run out of adjectives to describe it.
Performed by the Imperial Ice Stars , the cast features international world champions and it shows in their performance. Somersaults, stilts, acrobatics that would put circus performers to shame – what courage to be able to do all that on ice!
This is a performance that moved me (almost) to tears – the solos were painfully beautiful. Our local theatre with its fantastic stage and sound was transformed into a magnificient ice-rink. The lighting was brilliant and it matched every mood perfectly. And the sets and costumes were impeccable.
You can see a sneak preview here (video) (And it’s EXACTLY how it looks on the video!)
The dancers got a standing ovation at the end and it was well deserved. Go watch it if you have a chance.
