    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.

    It's not the translator, it's written in the article with latin letters. Not a big deal ofc but I love "Art on Ice" and just noticed it.

    No, "Art tonight" was also mentioned in one of the articles published before the show. The journalist just misheard and didn't care to check his facts before he publishes, not that unusual. :)

    Nice photo of all the cast from Denis Ten's "Vkontakte":

    Thank you!
    Stéphane and his stories behind the programs, always fun to listen. :)

    Though it's completely off-top, but if someone is curious to learn more about the "Rock Circus" project he mentions in the interview, here are some videos:

    Even though I like Lambiel's skating, I think for the very first time I understood why the girlies drooled so much over him! I'm not joining the bandwagon but I finally saw it.

    Why past tense? "Girlies" (we, that is) still are. And actually he has much more to offer to not only drool over him. One of the most interesting, funniest and nicest people (and interviewees) I've ever met.

    It's weird how little the TV reports show Carolina. It's mostly about the men, she wasn't in the press conference either. Although Caro is much more accomplished than Verner for example.:shuffle:

    You're right, I used the wrong tense, it just came out that way for no reason. :) Of course there are plenty of reasons to like Stéphane, he seems to be quite nice! It's just that I couldn't see exactly what had caused such a strong reaction from the fans towards him, I usually can tell what it is, in his case I couldn't until now, I didn't have access to a lot of footage during his best years, so probably I missed a lot of stuff.

    Interview with Stéphane Lambiel when he was in Kazakhstan: http://www.caravan.kz/article/63064

    "Caravan" mentions at the end that they have "exclusive interviews with other famous skaters - Brian Joubert and Tomas Verner."

    What are Stephane's "best years" exactly :confused:? 2005 and 2006 when he won his two world titles and the Olympic silver? I guess for some it's hard to imagine that there may be fans for whom his best years are now when he has the freedom to expand his artististry. For me personally Stephane's best years have been from 2007 onward (in my opinion, that, or probably 2006, was when he started to emerge as a real artist). Anyway, what his "best years", whenever they might be, have to do with it? It's not like after leaving competition Stephane has become less charming, intelligent, witty, fun and passionate about everything he does (if you think that his competitive years were his "best years")). He has only become wiser and has even more thoughtful things to say, as he is very obviously one of those people who learn from life's experiences, and also from mistakes. And that is as if his skating and what he is like on ice wasn't enough to be utterly captivated and mesmerized. I think you are absolutely in the dark about the nature of Lambiel fandom. I am aware that there are some typical fan "girlies" among Lambiel fans as well, but there are many real fans too (fortunately, the majority of fans that I know are really serious about Stephane's skating).

    As for Stephane in 'Rock Circus', and the "rock star" image in particular - of course, he is sexy there, but that sexiness is part purely physical, and part acted, while his natural sexiness is very different.
