Twenty-four of the world’s best skaters will descend into Singapore from24 to 27 September to present a stunning new interpretation of Sleeping Beauty on Ice, as part of their 10th Anniversary World Tour by the award-winning Imperial Ice Stars.
The promoters, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and BASE Entertainment Asia, who are also bringing Singin’ in the Rain, announces that this ice extravaganza will transform the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands into a magical location fit for this fast-paced fairytale on ice. Tickets are now on sale.
Set to the magnificent music of Tchaikovsky, this Sleeping Beauty on Ice brings a new take – and some new twists – to the classic love story, with exhilarating choreography and innovative staging from Tony Mercer, the world-renowned director of theatre-on-ice.
“If blood-stirring, bravura skating is what you’re after, look no further.”
THE TIMES, UK
The 24 World, European and National Championship level skaters push the boundaries of contemporary ice dance with their skill and athleticism, combining audacious high-speed leaps, throws and lifts with beautiful fluid ice dancing, all performed in the intimate setting of a frozen theatre stage.
“The Imperial Ice Stars are to skating what Cirque du Soleil is to circus –
inspiring, original and great theatre.”

“For the first time ever, I’ve introduced multi-person lift sequences and combination lift sequences,” enthuses director Tony Mercer. “These unbelievably talented skaters astound me with what they can achieve, so I’m confident they will enthral our audiences too.”
Mr Mercer’s interpretation of the well-known fairytale brings a few surprises: traditionally a wicked fairy, this Carabosse is a menacing male for the first time, who spikes Princess Aurora’s birthday drink. “Though the production is set in Imperial 19th century Russia, I wanted to bring a more modern and realistic interpretation to the piece,” explains Mr Mercer.
To create a frozen stage, 15km of pipe-work chilled to minus 15 degrees, four tonnes of crushed ice, and regular spraying with water over 34 hours are required; while the audience enjoy the comfortable ambiance of the theatre and some scorching skating!
With lavish, elegant costumes, including some stunning LED illuminated effects, sumptuous sets, spectacular flying sequences, and dramatic fire effects; Sleeping Beauty on Ice is a theatrical experience suitable for all ages, from 3 to 103.
“Dazzling, delectable ice treat.”
Sydney Morning Herald

“Elegant, sophisticated, stylish and above all supremely accomplished.”
