Opera On Ice in Marostica
Two evenings of entertainment, music and fun you cannot miss!
From 21 September 2018 to 22 September 2018
It is not long until the new highly anticipated edition of 'Opera On Ice': Marostica is ready to welcome for the first time the world-conquering ice show!
After several editions in the splendid setting of the Arena of Verona, Intimissimi On Ice 2018 changes location and moves to the province of Vicenza ... The marvelous town of Marostica, famous for the game of living chess enacted every two years, was in fact chosen to host Opera On Ice 2018 ... Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd September get ready to watch the greatest world stars of ice-skating spinning in the historic Piazza degli Scacchi.
Intimissimi On Ice in Marostica will offer a spectacle that is a perfect match of the Verona Arena: the beauty of the Lower Castle, the chorus, the Italian Symphony Rhythmic Orchestra, directed by Maestro Diego Basso, and the live soloists will be the backdrop to a central ice rink of 800 square meters on which the stars of world skating will perform, including the extraordinary Evgeni Plushenko, with costumes especially designed by Lorena Marin for the 2018 show.
Among the new features planned for the new edition of Intimissimi On Ice Opera Pop in Marostica, is an unmissable tribute to the match of living chess, to be enacted during the extraordinary show that will bring the evening to an end!
Many invitations have been sent out for Opera On Ice and the 2018 guest list is being finalized, even if several national and international stars have already been confirmed, who will take it in turns on stage to offer a never-seen-before show!
- Evgeni Plushenko, the only skater in the world to win an Olympic medal at all personal participations in the Olympics ... It's enough to mention that during his career he took part in 92 competitions, winning 63 gold medals, 16 silver and 4 bronze. In March 2017 he announced his official withdrawal from competitions and is now dedicating himself to coaching.
- Javier Fernandez, 2013 European champion, Olympic bronze medalist at Pyeongchang 2018, twice world champion ... He is the first and only Spanish figure skater to win an Olympic medal!
- Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte, Italian pride in the world, they are the most spectacular ice-skating pair of the Italian national team. World Champions at Saitama 2014 and winners of five European medals, they have held since 2012 the Italian championship top spot.
- Anna Pogorilaya, the top skater of the Russian national team, she has already won three European medals (two bronzes and one silver in 2017) and the bronze medal at the 2016 World Cup.
- Nicole Della Monica and Matteo Guarise, another leading skating pair in the Italian national team, they still hold the best ever Italian standing at a World Cup.
- Annette Dytrt and Yannick Bonheur, an extremely talented skating pair that perform with great impact and energy. Since 2013, they have been delighting the audiences of the best ice shows all over the world.
- Hot Shivers, a constant guest presence at Opera On Ice since the first edition in 2011 and back-to-back Italian champions since 1995, they are the synchronized skating team representing the Italian team.
An innovative show started in 2011 thanks to the efforts of Giulia Mancini, Opera on Ice in Italy combines the world of opera and ice skating in a show of pure magic: ice skating world champions take it in turns on stage expressing their unmistakable style to the tune of the world’s greatest opera arias. Opera on Ice at the Arena di Verona immediately captivated a huge audience: the world’s largest open-air opera stage, famous ice-skating champions, internationally renowned opera singers, lights and stage sets decreed the success of this unique show!
In 2014 a great transformation was introduced: after the agreement reached between the Balich Worldwide Shows Company and Intimissimi, a brand of the Calzedonia Group, the event changed its name to 'Intimissimi On Ice Opera Pop', and from a somewhat ordinary Ice Gala, it turned into an extraordinary show that sublimely combines skating, music, song, screenings and amazing scenery.
According to international media, 'Intimissimi on the Ice' is the most exciting figure skating event in the world: even the ISU (International Skating Union) has defined it as a unique show at international level.
After the magic of the Verona Arena, Intimissimi On Ice Opera pop moved to beautiful Marostica for two unique evenings filled with charm... On 21st and 22nd September, the chess city awaits you!
