Opera on Ice
Special Operatic event captured live at Italy's historic Verona Arena
2012 77 mins

A magnificent combination of figure skating and opera from the world's largest open-air theatre in stunning HD.

For the first time in its distinguished history, Italy's historic Verona arena opens its doors to figure skating for this ground-breaking new show. Combining the beauty and skill of ice skating with some of the most famous arias from 12 of the world's greatest operas, this is an event to bring together aficionados of music and sport.

Among the skaters taking part are world number one Carolina Kostner, winner of the European Championships, and Olympic champion Stephane Lambiel. In a truly international line-up, they are joined by champions from China (Qing Pang, Jian Tong) and Russia (Tatiana Totmianina, Maxim Marinin).

For the music, top-level international opera stars collaborate with the 200-strong Verona Arena Orchestra and Chorus. Expect to hear arias from the likes of 'Don Giovanni', 'Aida', 'Carmen', 'Romeo and Juliet', 'Turandot', 'Tosca' and 'La Traviata'.
