“I am happy that the best and most famous figure skaters take part in our projects. Thanks to the professionalism, individuality and talent of each of them, real magic is born on ice! Slender, graceful and incredibly beautiful Victoria Sinitsina as Scheherazade, convincing and charismatic Nikita Katsalapov as Shahriyar and the incomparable Kamila Valieva as the Goddess – together they create a real miracle!- says Tatyana Navka, general producer of the project, author of the idea and director of the show.
The show will be presented in Moscow from December 24 to January 7. And, since there are many places in Megasport, those who wish can be surprised how far the imagination of the authors can go when staging a fairy tale from “Arabian Nights”. Forget about the fairy tale itself, which tells how the storyteller Scheherazade told the formidable ruler a new fairy tale every night and thereby extended his life, because the king wanted to know what would happen next. This is not in the program. And there is a blonde Scheherazade in the style “a la russe”, a speaking and singing gin in the voice of Philip Kirkorov, a belly dance of a professional dancer, musical compositions – from the song “Sea, Sea” by Yuri Antonov. ..” to Queen’s hit “We will rock you” and “Parisian tango”, known for the unique interpretation of Mireille Mathieu. Much more than a fairy tale “Arabian Nights” comes to life on ice. And the main love story of Scheherazade and the knight Shahriyar is set to music by Michel Legrand, known for the painting “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg”.
At the secular premiere of the program, in addition to Yuri Antonov and Philip Kirkorov, Olga Buzova also shone. But no, the singer does not sing for this program, the RG columnist specifically found out about this detail.
But the show involves large-scale installations, the most modern set design using the latest 3D technologies and artistic animation. Views of the city, comics, natural landscapes appear on the screen. For example, in one of the scenes cherry blossoms appear, in the other Egyptian motifs, etc. In one of the episodes, a golden piano appears on the ice, from which, like a dancer who appeared from the instrument during Dima Bilan’s Eurovision show, an oriental dancer of extraordinary beauty emerges. She’s the only one allowed to wear shoes to the ice show and not skate, but her dancing is worth it.
However, the most important magic is in the skill of the skaters. And in this regard, the main character of the show is Aladdin played by Yegor Murashov, the star of men’s figure skating. The guy rides so hard that he leaves behind all the other participants in the show, completely drawing attention to himself. As soon as he enters the ice, immediately the story of Aladdin becomes the main one. Furthermore, he performs together with Jinn, who also demonstrates absolutely magical skill in terms of figure skating. The role of the Genie is played by Ivan Ryabinin. Both dancers on the ice move in such a way that it is impossible to take your eyes off them. The same can be said about the goddess, Kamilla Valieva, unfortunately, the “party” from her on the show is very small, but I want the girl to go on the ice again and again. And, of course, one cannot but say kind words to the titled figure skater Pyotr Chernyshev. In this show, he plays the role of a weakened king who is looking for a successor. Chernyshev, as always, is very technical and charismatic. He is the performer of the main roles in all Tatyana Navka shows, and his skill is also one of the compelling reasons why you, your children and loved ones can go to see an ice fairy tale during the holidays. New Year holidays.
