Holiday on Ice returns to Peterborough

Holiday on Ice has announced its return to the EXEC Peterborough, East of England Showground from 2nd to 5th February next year.

The world’s most visited ice show returns with a brand new show – TROPICANA – The Passion Tour.  Created and choreographed by Olympic champion Robin Cousins MBE, TROPICANA takes you on a journey that celebrates love, life, music and dance in one of the most thrilling ice spectaculars you will ever see.

Robin Cousins’s love of skating and desire for artistic excellence has given us some of the most unforgettable performances ever seen on ice.  In TROPICANA Robin invites you to share his dance and musical inspirations – from the high octane rock ‘n’ roll of fifties America to a smouldering bolero and the steamy Latin rhythms of a tropical night club – brought to life by a cast of over 40 world class skaters.

As well as offering an original musical score, TROPICANA features interpretations of some of the best loved songs from world-renowned songwriter Barry Manilow including ‘I Can’t Smile Without You’, the iconic ‘Mandy’ and the one and only ‘Copacabana’.

Robin has sent a personal message about the show: “A few years ago I was working with Barry Manilow on a TV Special and I found his music works just as great skating should. It flows beautifully and soars in all the right places!  There’s passion and power in the songs and that’s what I’ve always tried to convey in the shows I create, so I am absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity to showcase this wonderful music in TROPICANA and hope this will add a new dimension to the audience’s enjoyment of these great songs.”

For the first time in Holiday on Ice’s history, TROPICANA employs a giant, state-of-the-art LED screen as the backdrop to the show, enhancing the action on the ice with a thrilling light show that incorporates additional footage of the skaters.

TROPICANA will be delighting audiences drawn from across the East of England region at the EXEC Peterborough in 8 shows from 2nd-5th February 2012. Money raised from ticket sales for the opening Gala charity night will be donated to locally based charity Anna’s Hope.
