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.

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.
