October 18, 2018 10:12

The world famous Russian figure skater and producer Ilya Averbukh presents a majestic ice show starring half a dozen Olympic champions.
The grand ice performance "Romeo and Juliet" staged by Ilya Averbukh will be held at the Luzhniki Olympic Complex, Moscow, from November 1 to November 11, 2018. 100 topnotch figure skaters and musicians, over 400 stage costumes, grandiose scenery and an array of visual effects – all of that in a single masterpiece of performing arts.
The world premiere of the ice show “Romeo and Juliet” took place in Sochi a year ago. Since then, over 1 million people have already watched it, thus making it the most successful production in the history of Russian ice shows. It is no coincidence that “Romeo and Juliet” by Ilya Averbukh has been selected to close the theater season in Italy at the famous venue of Arena di Verona during the Russian Seasons festival.

To me, the “Romeo and Juliet” performance proves that we have attained a fundamentally new level in the staging of ice shows. We have managed to create a stage production that greatly exceeds anything ever created, in regards of its scale, as well as audacious visual and scenic solutions”, - Ilya Averbukh pointed out.

Ilya Averbukh is currently one of the most famous stage directors in Russia. In his "Romeo and Juliet", the most famous Russian figure skaters are engaged: 6 Olympic champions perform the main roles. Olympic champions, five-time European champions, and two-time world champions - Tatiana Totmianina and Maxim Marinin - will play Romeo and Juliet. The role of Mercuzzio will be performed by Alexei Yagudin, the 2002 Olympic champion, four-time world champion, three-time European champion, two-time winner of grand-prix finals, and two-time world champion among professionals. His opponent Tybald is played by the 2006 Olympic champion, two-time world champion, three-time European champion, three-time winner of Grand Prix finals and three-time Russian champion Roman Kostomarov.
Especially for the production of "Romeo and Juliet", all the figure skaters took fencing lessons and the fatal fencing duel on ice between Tibald and Merkutsio will be one of the most spectacular scenes in the show. The roles of the Prince and Princess of Verona will be performed by the 2014 Olympic champions Tatyana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov. Altogether, the project involves more than 100 participants.
