The island might not be covered in snow but it does make its way to the island one way or another. In this case, it’s in the form of the Snow Queen, the classic Christmas tale by Hans Christian Andersen which has been turned into an ice-skating show by the thrilling Russian Circus on Ice.
The stages of Satiriko Theatre in Nicosia and Patticheio Theatre in Limassol freeze up to host unique shows in three languages and take the audience on a winter journey. With two shows already gone, the remaining opportunities to witness this ice-cold phenomenon are today in Limassol (in Greek) or tomorrow on Sunday (in Russian).
Acclaimed dancers and acrobats offer a fantastic, artistic ice-skating performance taking the tale of the Snow Queen to another level with their impressive acrobatics, choreographies and melodies from one of the most popular pieces of classical music.
And that’s not all. The set design, special effects and theatrical costumes are said to impress as well, crafting a whole experience.
Christian Andersen’s tale tells the moving adventure of two friends. Gerda, looking for her beloved friend Kai manages to reach the frozen palace of the Snow Queen. This is a thrilling journey, where with the power of friendship and love, the protagonists surpass all risks and obstacles they come to face.
