Swan Lake sneak preview

03 Aug 2010

On Tuesday, July 22 the Icehouse invited its VIPs and subscribers to a one-off free rehearsal of ‘Swan Lake on Ice’ by the Imperial Ice Stars.

Gathering at the Icehouse at 5pm, special guests were treated to a 25-minute preview of the Imperial Ice Stars’ new interpretation of their award-winning Swan Lake on Ice.

The preview was a rehearsal for the production, which opened at The State Theatre, Arts Centre on August 3.

Swan Lake on Ice is currently performing throughout Australia as part of a two-year, 22-country world tour.

The 26 world, European and national championship skaters are under the direction from choreographer Tony Mercer.

Mr Mercer said he was inspired by his research into Tchaikovsky’s original score and intentions for the story and wanted to create a more realistic interpretation of the much-loved tale and transpose it onto ice, creating a new art form in the process – ice dance in a full theatrical setting.

The Imperial Ice Stars have nine shows in Melbourne then move on to Perth, Sydney and Canberra, before travelling to the UK. Five lucky preview audience members left with a double pass to the opening night.
