It's one of the programs I've never seen live and still regret it... but even if it's not that, only hearing to those musics would be enough for a great evening, for me. Add some skating and it's pure perfection
Pleeeeeeeease... Me too, I regret about never seeing it performed live. To tell the truth I fell in love with it too late, and started to fully appreciate it when I understood there will be no chance to see it...
So proud and happy for him.It's will be the best show!!! Whatever as a skater,a choreography,built the skate school or control this show...everything,every step,he always know what he want,with whom,which time is better,what's the best way...He have his dream,follow his heart,true to plan and make it happen.
Hello, I am thinking about planning to go and tried to find out what it means to buy a VIP ticket. Does that give extra's like attending rehearsals or a little meet & greet? Or are they just expensive seats near to the rink?
And when I google on the rink and look at pictures, I see those high plastic 'walls' (protection against the puck when there is ice-hockey, I presume) but will they be removed for a figure skating show?
If not, would it be better to have a seat in a higher area?
annelfie, on the official site of the show it's written: "It is possible to book salons and loges with a seating capacity ranging from 8 to 34 people, some of which give access to the after-show cocktail dinner in presence of the artists." Also, there is a contact e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org So you can try to ask them.
About hockey plastic walls, as far as I know they were removed for the "Music on Ice" which was in Geneva, so I guess they will be removed. But probably it's better to ask that too. And, if you get their answer, would you share the info here? Probably it might be useful for more fans. Thanks.
From FSU: As long as I heard Stephane said in an interview on a Japanese magazine named the 'Season Guide' special issue of 'World Figure Skate' published recently that he was offered this opportunity to organize an ice show celebrating the 150th anniversary of the friendship between Switzerland and Japan when he visited Japanese Consulate General in Geneva to apply for a visa. Akiko Suzuki, Miki Ando and Nobunari Oda will participate in this show. He choreographs the programs for Akiko and Nobunari. Akiko will skate to a beautiful Debussy's number played by a Japanese pianist Kotaro Fukuma who loves her skating. He wished to have more Japanese skaters in the show but shame he couldn't since they are busy at the stage of the season. www.fsuniverse.net/forum/index.php?threads/ice-legends-geneva-december-18.93257/#post-4340068
So Stéphane will also choreograph programs for this show! Wow...
Here are a little more information form "Season Guide" (Japanese magazine).
Stephane wants to make this show something special and unique, and that is why this is only one-time gala. In this way, casts will be able to put all energy into one show, and you can see "best of the best" performances of all artists. In addition to already announced casts, Anna Ovcharova, novice skaters from Swiss and Japan and "some others" (looks like - he was not yet able to announce) are mentioned. This means, legends skaters and young hopes will be get together in the show. And he is wishing to have his own show every year by inviting friends.
Meantime, I found interesting info about Kotaro Fukuma from Japanese HP. I am surprised to learn Kotaro's father used to take figure skating lesson from Nobuo Sato (Mao and Kozuka's coach), and, Kotaro himself learned figure skating when he was a child. Looks like he has been naturally connected to figure skating. He also stated how he met Stephane - He happened to see him at Narita airport and dared to speak to him because he had been also a big fan of Stephane. Then things started and have been developed as of now. Looks like they are destined to see eatch other!
