IMPERIAL ICE STARS
Number: GRASS DVD016
Using the complete sound track from the show and filmed live in Melbourne, Australia 2008 during the World Tour’s first leg, this stunning DVD captures the art form of Ice Dance and allows the viewer to truly marvel at the skills of the Imperial Ice Stars. Superb sets, lighting design, Tony Mercer's direction and Tim A. Duncan's beautiful original music specially performed by the Moscow State Cinematic Orchestra and soloists from the Manchester Symphony Orchestra. Together with a cast of 26 skaters - including Andrei Penkine, Olena Pytash, Vadim Yarkov and Olga Sharutenko (Dancing on Ice) - combine to create a very special production. This recording directed by Mercer and edited by Ambience back in the UK was recorded over 3 live performances. Soon after the release of the DVD the Imperial Ice Stars were invited to perform for the first time at the Royal Albert Hall in Febuary 2010 to huge critical aclaim. Tim A. Duncan conducted his Manchester Symphony Orchestra live for the 8 performances to create yet another first for this amazing company of performers.
