On Friday, June 19, the famous Russian producer Ilya Averbukh will show a colorful ice show Carmen, recorded in 2015 in Sochi in the Iceberg Skating Palace for the 'Russian seasons' audience. In November 2019 the show was shown in Germany's ISS DOME arena in Düsseldorf as part of the 'Russian seasons' programme.
The most extraordinary rendition of the popular plot about the young gypsy transports the viewer to Spain and makes them familiar with the country's emotional and vibrant life thanks to the best Russian figure skaters, amongst whom are Olympic, National and International champions. The ice musical show will dazzle the audience: the production blends together massive set design, blaring costumes, rocking visual effects, live vocals by the best Russian musical singers, circus stunts and fiery flamenco turning Carmen into one the most stunning shows in Averbukh's portfolio.
One of the specific features of the production is the combination of the classical and modern music. Thus, the ice-skating show is staged to the music by contemporary Russian composer Roman Ignatiev based on Georges Bizet's brilliant score.
