    Thanks, but this thread is about the 'Art on Ice' show. Maybe you wanted to post this on the current Stephane thread? And, yes, he is Stephane (Stéphane, to be more precise), not Stephan - "Stephan" is an English or German name, but he is from the french part of Switzerland.

    Thanks so much for posting this. I find Lambiel such a sublime skater; and such integrity to his "show" programs.

    I was at the show on saturday evening. I enjoyed it sooo much! My highlight was Stephane. His skating is out of the world and to see him live again was so great. I cried after both programs because it touchs my soul when he´s skating. And it was a honour for me to see Kurts Singing in the rain live! Such a legendary program! I also loved Aljona & Robin and Adelina. Overall it was a really great show. It just was over too fast :D

    Definitely. He has the utmost respect from me for continuing to improve and take his own skating so seriously even after his eligible career was over. That is passion.

    Lauravvv, thank you sooo much for this link! I spent the last hour watching it over and over again! :) This program is so beautiful and full of emotions. I think Stephane also had tears in his eyes after he finished at saturday evening. He skates with all his heart and soul.

    I bought a ticket for the show on tuesday! It's kind of a last minute decision, but I'm sure I will love it!

    I wish shows like this (also Aritistry on Ice, All that Skate etc) that involve a big international cast would come to North America. I'm sad that Europe and Asia seem to be getting all the high calibre shows with amazing production quality, but not NA. :(

    Isn´t Stephane Lambiel even one of the initiators of the show? I will go to Zurich next year to see the show, and I´m already super exited :rollin:
    This year I chose Aliona and Robins show "Imagination on Ice", because I´m afraid that this might be too late next year :(

    Americans wouldn't understand Art on Ice. We'd chew our collective hamburgers in bewilderment, we would.

    Sounds like a great lineup. Does it mean Adelina, V&T and S&S will not go to worlds?

    S/S have confirmed that they will go to worlds. I guess that means, they won´t participate in all shows.

    They are in the cast of all shows, according to the official site, which is usually exact.
    Adelina, who also confirmed to go to Worlds, will be only in Swiss part (won't be in Stockholm and Helsinki).

    No, he is not. 'Art on Ice' was started in 1996 even before Lambiel was a junior skater - http://www.artonice.com/en/about-us/history/. But he performed there for the first time when he was still a junior, and has performed in all 'Art on Ice' shows since 2003, except the Chinese 'Art on Ice' in 2012 when he couldn't perform due to serious health problems.

    Art on Ice started as a vehicle for Denise Biellmann in 1996.

    According to the recent article V/T will decide towards the end of this week.

    Lots of great videos on this channel:

    I guess the whole Saturday's show will be there eventually, or maybe almost.

    So S/S might have a busy time then ;)

    Big Thank you for that! Great videos from "Art on Ice", but the best thing was from the Oberstorf Show. I was almost cracking up about Tomasz Verner as Carmen :rofl: :cheer:

    Thank you, I didn´t know that. It almost seemed like he was, because now it´s pretty much his name, I would connect with "Art on Ice" ;)

    So I went and I absolutely love it! I'll go next year for sure. It's such an amazing show with many things to see both on and off ice.

    No wonder, since he has skated in 'Art on Ice' for so long, and as the most famous Swiss skater he is also the main star of this show, even when more titled skaters (like Olympic Champions) come to it. Although it seems that this year Volosozhar/Trankov are a bit more in the centre, as they became Olympic Champions just a few weeks ago.


    I am glad that you liked the show. Can we have a bit more detailed impressions, please :)? Of course, you don't have to write one, but I really love to read impressions about the best shows from different people.

    Very cool that Hurts was a part of Art On Ice! I loved their Happiness album, unfortunately they have virtually no exposure in North America AFAIK.
