The world’s premier figure skating tour, Investors Group Stars on Ice presented by Lindt, has brought together a superstar ensemble of Olympic, World and national champions for the 2012 season. The award-winning production will visit 12 Canadian cities, arriving in Ottawa on Sunday, April 29, for a 4 p.m. performance at Scotiabank Place.
Stars on Ice has always showcased the unique combination of athleticism and artistry that is figure skating, in a cutting-edge, premier entertainment spectacular. In 2010, Stars on Ice highlighted North American superiority at the Vancouver Winter Olympics. Last year, Stars on Ice celebrated its third decade of shows in Canada by bringing the world an unparalleled cast of legends from the past, present and future. In 2012, the Investors Group Stars on Ice presented by Lindt “Love ‘n’ Life” tour will get a new infusion of creativity from legendary skater Kurt Browning, who will co-direct and choreograph this year’s production.
“I am thrilled and a tad intimidated with the opportunity to choreograph Stars on Ice,” said Browning. “My relationship with this tour has been wonderful for over two decades, and I want to give this new role with the show my best effort like I did, and still will, as a skater.”
Stars on Ice continues to be a pioneer in figure skating by offering fans the rare opportunity to witness some of the world’s most creative and cherished champions performing together in both individual and ensemble routines. This year’s tour features a stellar cast of world-renowned athletes, including four-time World champion and four-time Canadian champion Kurt Browning; 2010 Olympic gold medallists and World champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir (Canada); 2010 Olympic bronze medallist Joannie Rochette (Canada), and 2006 Olympic bronze medallist and 2008 World champion Jeffrey Buttle (Canada).
The award-winning Investors Group Stars on Ice presented by Lindt “Love ‘n’ Life” tour will be made into a one-hour CBC television special to be aired in December. The performance at the Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ont., on Thursday, May 3, will be recorded for the national broadcast. Visit www.starsonice.ca for more details on air date and time.
