22:56 19 March 2014
Fresh from the 2014 Winter Olympics and television fame, Robin Cousins brings to Norwich Theatre Royal his sensational new skating show, ICE.
For one week only this show aims to draw audiences at Norwich Theatre Royal into its unique world.
The former Olympic champion, who also commentated on figure skating at Sochi this year, has recently finished his role as head judge on ITV’s Dancing on Ice.
And now he has hand-picked some of the greatest ice skaters from around the globe to bring his new production to life.
It’s been thirty years since the skating-guru created Electric Ice, so the main aim of ICE is to redefine the sport for a new generation – but it accomplishes so much more than that.
Full of drama and atmosphere, ICE sees a group of world class skaters glide, soar, flip and fly in a truly theatrical setting.
The powerful soundtrack rings out with original music and reworked modern classics designed to delight.
People of all ages were wowed by the impressive performances of the figure skaters.
And incredible highlights included exceptional acrobatics with a suspended ring, fabulous vocals from Michael Solonoski and a finale show stopper infused with swing time.
But the real icing on the cake was meeting the talented Mr Cousins himself – a true talent in choreography and putting on a first-rate show.
