The Millennium Theatre, Brooklyn, New York
THE ST PETERSBURG STATE BALLET ON ICE is one of the jewels of Russia. Founded 40 years ago and steeped heavily in the traditions of Russian classic ballet, The St. Petersburg State Ballet on Ice is the pioneer producer of ice ballets. The company has toured worldwide since 1967, traveling with 35 award-winning world-class figure skaters in productions including NUTCRACKER and SLEEPING BEAUTY, in the tradition of the renowned Kirov Ballet. For twenty-four hours and with 7500 pounds of ice, the Millennium Theatre will undergo a chilling makeover and emerge as 30′ X 40′ ice rink. Jumps and spins will heighten the romance of these classic fairy tales. The cast of ice stars will glide through the ballet-inspired choreography defying gravity with every twist and turn. Each production is magnificently costumed and performed with exquisite sets to the music of the great ballet scores by Tchaikovsky. Don’t miss the holiday magic!
