Following a wildly successful series of six sold-out shows in 2010, “Art on Ice” plans a February return to Switzerland, with what it is hailing as “the best gala ensemble ever.”
Along with vocal performances from disco diva Donna Summer and classical crossover star Katherine Jenkins, “Art on Ice” will feature seven World champions.
Stéphane Lambiel, Evgeni Plushenko, Jeffrey Buttle, Shizuka Arakawa, Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao, Isabelle Delobel and Olivier Schoenfelder, and Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy will headline the shows, along with Joannie Rochette and Sarah Meier.
The mini-tour will run in Zürich from Feb. 3 to 6 and in Lausanne, Feb. 8 and 9.
A smaller variation of the show, featuring ‘80s pop star Kim Wilde, will be staged in St. Moritz on Feb. 18. The lineup for that show will feature Lambiel, Meier, Savchenko and Szolkowy, and Delobel and Schoenfelder. The remainder of the cast will be Sinead Kerr and John Kerr, Allison Perticheto, Tomi Pulkkinen with the “Art on Ice” dancers, and ice acrobats Fiona Gabriella Zaldua and Dmitri Sukhanov.
The St. Moritz show will be an intimate experience for a small audience in a dinner and show format. See the “Art on Ice” website (www.artonice.com) for more information.
