What is On

A cool journey to Neverland

The world-renowned Russian Ice Stars will bring to Shenzhen Gymnasium a cool adaptation of this famous fantasy adventure by J.M. Barrie. Expect a fresh new take on the classic fantasy-adventure story, with Wendy, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook, Tiger Lily and Peter himself performing acrobatics and zooming across the ice.
London’s chimneys, the Darling family home, the pirate haunts of Captain Hook and Tiger Lily’s camp all appear in this energetic, fun-filled “Peter Pan on Ice.” Fresh from productions that include the classic “Snow White” and the modern, critically-acclaimed “Cirque de Glace,” the Russian Ice Stars are again dazzling audiences in this show, with their gravity-defying dance moves, spins, stunts, sword-fights and flaming hoops, all executed in perfectly synchronized precision.
Medalists distinguished in national, European and Olympic competitions, the elite troupe of 60 Russian skaters and lead dancers combines classic ballet, acrobatics, circus antics and pantomime to bring the beloved characters to life, woven together with old world charm and a hefty dose of spectacle.
The performance is choreographed by Giuseppe Arena, an Italian artistic director engaged in many world-class extravaganzas, including the opening ceremony of the 2006 Turin Olympics, while the original score comes courtesy of Silvio Amato. The Italian composer’s arrangements have been commissioned by Italian, British and U.S. TV networks as well as for film soundtracks, while his uplifting music for this show inspired the production of a full ballet in the United States, where the magical tale has been adapted numerous times in theater and on film.
