Also, first news about "Art on Ice": invited guest is James Blunt!!
I remember for season 2018/19 which never took place in the end Stephane mentioned that they prepared with Salome exhibition program to James Blunt, we never saw it in the end. Now we will get a chance! (Hm, or was it Damien Rice?)
(usually we have a separate thread for AOI, but for now I think it's OK to post it here, when we have Stephane's participation officially confirmed and more news I'll make a separate one)
Update! Stephane already confirmed (not that I had any doubts but last two years they confirmed him much later)
The stars on the ice include Olympic and world champions. Joining everyone else in the show is also crowd favorite Stéphane Lambiel.
Born in 1974 the British James Blunt has sold over 20 million albums worldwide. He launched the perfect start to his career in 2005 with his album “Back To Bedlam” and the single “You’re Beautiful”. Other number one hits included Blunt’s “1973”, “Stay The Night” and “Bonfire Heart”.
Ice skating to perfection to James Blunt hits will be Olympic gold medalists and world champions Kaetlyn Osmond, Stéphane Lambiel, Aljona Savchenko & Bruno Massot and Tatiana Volosozhar & Maxim Trankov.
Art on Ice has a worldwide star live on the stage in combination with outstanding top athletes – and many more attractions to please audiences. Also performing in the 2019 Art on Ice ensemble will be a troupe from the Cirque Éloize. Like almost no other, the Canadians understand the art of the circus and combine the original and modern with music and dance.
As I understood from various posts on social media, "Music on Ice" was great success (as always ). Stephane skated "Nocturne" with Deniss and "Son of God". He did 3-3 combo in the finale (?) and also there were some pairs' throws (Deniss was throwing Stephane).
Yes MOI was nice, as always. And, as I - besides Stéphane of course .. and Deniss - I love Aljona Savchenko and Bruno Massot as well as Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte very much, it's THE perfect show to see them all together, and so near as the rink is small.
As always with MOI, there's a storyline that connects the individual performances. This time they mixed different themes, but the main one was kind of a criminal story with - in-between the numbers - a "suspect", a "policeman" and a detective "doing there work" on or around the ice. That's also the reason why Stéphane and Deniss started acting after "Nocturne": they "fled" a "suspect" and/or a "policeman" who came on the ice . Well, this storyline is not very congruent, but makes the show lovely, a real family show.
Also i detected that it is not "only" Luca Lanotte who has a huge comic talent, but also Bruno Massot . Have a look:
