Imperial Ice StarsThe Imperial Ice Stars, a premier theatrical ice-skating company, will return to Australia this July with its award-winning masterpiece Swan Lake on Ice. This adrenaline-infused show will come to Melbourne on July 3-8, Adelaide on July 18-22 and Sydney on July 25-29.


The 23 Olympic, World, European and National Championship level skaters, who between them hold more than 250 competition medals, take contemporary ice dance to a new level with their daring and graceful feats. They’ve performed at some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including the London Palladium, Singapore’s Esplanade Theatre, Montreal’s Place des Arts and most recently, Cape Town’s Artscape.


Presented by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, Swan Lake on Ice is a unique portrayal of the classic love story so often portrayed by ballet companies. It features Tchaikovsky’s glorious music, exhilarating new choreography from leading ice director Tony Mercer and dazzling costumes.


Mercer commented, "I always felt it was a natural fit, to have swans gliding on ice."


In a review, The Sunday Telegraph wrote, “The Imperial Ice Stars are to skating what Cirque du Soleil is to circus – inspiring, original and great theatre.”
