THIS spring at the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange, the world renowned Russian Ice Stars are back in town for their annual ice dancing extravaganza.
This year they present a spectacular adaptation of J M Barrie’s famous story about the boy who never grew up, Peter Pan.
From Tuesday 17 to Saturday 21 May, audiences will have the opportunity to witness brilliant skating on a stage of real ice as this magical story is brought to life in a show packed with glamour, glitz and colour.
Mysterious lands filled with Pirates, Indians, and ticking crocodiles, will transport the audience back in time to a wonderful world of make-believe. Unique touches include penny farthings being ridden across the ice as the curtain opens on a sky line of a London Park, complete with chimney stacks and chimney sweeps.
The main characters Peter Pan, Wendy, Tinkerbell and Captain Hook will spring to life against a backdrop of fire, Indian drumming and incredible scenery changes from Wendy’s bedroom through to Hook’s secret hideout.
Outstanding choreography by Cavaliere Guiseppe Arena, who staged the opening ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics, complements an original musical score by acclaimed Italian composer Silvio Amato.
This fast moving production is suitable for all the family to enjoy. Gasp at the jumps and spins the skaters achieve in such a small space and marvel at the spectacular aerial gymnasts who add another jaw dropping element to this show.
