    Denis Ten ( @Tenis_Den ) tweeted today:
    "Btw, we opened official website of the show - http://denisten.kz/show, everyone is saying it looks fabulous. What about you? ;)"

    Shows in Kazakhstan are May 24 in Almaty and May 25 in Astana.

    Scheduled to appear: Lambiel, Kostner, Joubert, Slutskaya, Duhamel/Radford, Verner, Zaldua & Sukhanov (adagio pair), Zhiganshina/Gazsi, Besedin & Polishchuk (male ice acrobats).

    You've got a great opportunity to see it live at 18:30 in Sport Palace of Baluan Sholak :) I will skate for You with live musicians!"

    great cast. good for him and especially good for Kazakhstan! he's really doing a good job of popularizing figure skating in his home country.
    and if I'm right, 1000 KZT is about $6, best tickets cost about $27 :)

    I'm going and really looking forward to it. Denis tweeted today that the show in Almaty is almost sold out. I also heard from Tatiana Totmianina that she and Maxim Marinin will perform as well.

    Yes, Duhamel/Radford were intended to perform, but now they are replaced with Totmianina/Marinin.

    They could totally clean up at Eurovision looking like that. They'd just need to decide which country to represent.

    Reports and photos from today's press conference. Nothing especially new in the quotes: Denis dreamt to invite all those stars to his country for quite some time and he is glad he can finally do this. Guests are charmed by the hospitality and the attention, didn't expect figure skating is so popular in Kazakhstan.

    Alex Gazsi (ice dancer with Nelli Zhiganshina) didn't have his suitcase with his skates, but apparently received it this morning. Yesterday there was an official dinner with the deputy mayor. The skaters are treated like royals. :)

    It was a great show last night with many beautiful performances and live music performed by Kazakh artists. The skaters, artists and crew then took a plane to Astana after the show.

    The show in Astana was also great. I was told there were 9,000 people. The speed skating oval is not the best venue with the spectators being rather far away from the ice but they did have extra tribunes and VIP-tables closer to the ice, too. At the end, a lot of fans came down and I think they almost would have ovrrun the ice if the security hadn't stopped them. Denis Ten and Kazakhstan have been a great host for the show and all skaters really enjoyed it.

    I doubt he had that many options to pick from (if at all), considering this was live music.

    Both shows look fantastic and I hope Denis Ten's success will be good for skating in Kazakhstan. Will either show be shown on TV? I'd love to see better quality videos.

    Congrats to Denis for a wonderful show and a great cast line-up. I am sure his success will raise the interest of figure skating in Kazakhstan. Maybe, some day, they may have a female version of Ten winning Worlds too. Way to go for the smaller countries.

    ^ Thank you Eislauffan! Can't wait to read more reports, glad you had such a great time!

    I am very happy for Denis - the two shows seem to have been a full success and it's nice to see him get this much support in his homecountry. Also, all the skaters seemed to really enjoy their stay in Kazakhstan :)

    PRESS RELEASE PHOTO and VIDEO
    26.05.2013

    May 25 at the Ice Palace "Alau" (Astana) took place on Ice show, "Denis Ten and friends." The initiator of the show became the stars of figure skating silver medalist at the World Denis Ten. Go out on the ice world stars: Stephane Lambiel, Brian Joubert, Irina Slutskaya, Carolina Kostner.

    Opened the show People's Artist of the USSR and Kazakhstan Alibek Dnishev. Kazakh pop submitted Serkebayeva Jamila, a group of "Ringo", Marjane Arapbaeva, Bauirzhan Isaev, Sundet Baigozhina, Meir Bayneshev. In the leading roles were Nurlan ABDULLIN Sadvakasova and Madina. As co-host were invited Serik Sapiev and Anna Alyabeva.

    Directed by show - Ari Zakarian, producer Yevgeny Plushenko and Irina Slutskaya, the organizer of the ice show "Kings on Ice" and "Extreme Ice". Music producer of the project - Kazakh composer Renat Gysin.

    Invite figure skating stars at home - a long-standing dream of Dennis. The project concept is simple: Denis Ten invite friends to show the stars Kazakhstan, and Kazakhstan - the stars. Triumphant performance at the World Cup has made this dream a reality. None of the above domestic skaters did not achieve this success. Kazakhstani people deserve to be able to see right now the country's best figure skater in the glow of international stars.

    - I myself have repeatedly acted in various shows, and I always wanted to Kazakhstan were able to see the skaters, who previously only seen on TV. And I had a goal: to show my friends the beauty of our country. More than once I told them about how dynamically developing Kazakhstan. Now they can see it for themselves - says Denis Ten.

    Audience saw the classic program skaters and rooms designed specifically for the project with the participation of Kazakh pop stars.

    - Stephane Lambiel over many years is the main face of the biggest ice show in Europe «Art tonight». Carolina Kostner performs in his own show, "Opera on Ice." This is probably one of the most expensive projects in Italy. Caroline is rarely involved in foreign show, and that she agreed to come to us in Kazakhstan - it is a great honor. Irina Slutskaya does not need it, we all know it. Sergey Yakimenko of Ukraine will demonstrate a very dangerous stunt: jumping skating through the car. For his performance Sergey entered the Guinness World Records. We will also feature world champions in ice acrobatics Bessedin Vladimir and Sergei Polishchuk. They are in demand in many of the world's ice shows - presents his friends Denis.

    Photos from the show can be viewed on our homepage of Facebook, download the original photo in the original size, as well as see video report.
