Intimissimi On Ice has returned with “One Amazing Day”, the 3rd edition of the unique ice show where opera, pop music, figure skating and fashion merge in the magical setting of Arena di Verona. Balich Worldwide Shows has produced the show together with Opera On Ice.
As always the main characters were played by the finest figure skating champions of several Olympics, Carolina Kostner, Stéphane Lambiel and, for the first time, Evgeni Plushenko and Kiira Korpi, together with a cast of renown talents.
The show was directed by Kim Gavin, celebrated talent from the UK, winner of BATFA and Brit Award, director of London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies. Nathan Clarke choreographed the show, as in the 2 previous editions.
The music direction was looked after by John Metcalfe, composer, producer and arranger to many great artists such as Peter Gabriel and Coldplay. Stufish Entertainment Architects, the most important production design studio in the world, with a curriculum that ranges from Pink Floyd to Lady Gaga, from Cirque du Soleil to Beijing 2008 and Torino 2006 Olympic Ceremonies, created a totally new setting for the show.
The costumes have always been designed by iconic names from the design world, and in 2016 they were made by super-talented Milena Canonero, the winner of 4 Oscars and of several awards around the world. The live performance of Andrea Bocelli was blended into the show, and gave an unforgettable evening to an enchanted passionate audience .
The partnership between the renown brand Intimissimi and the experience of Balich Worldwide Shows has created a unique show that is taking glamour, music and ice skating to a new level.
