    Thanks, Sylvia, iceflame. That's a fine cast, and I am especially glad to see Virtue/Moir on the list. Well, I am always most glad to see Stephane among the casts of various shows, but that has become somewhat expected by now .

    Article in English with lovely photo of Shen and Zhao: http://english.cri.cn/11354/2014/05/29/195s828932.htm
    Zhao Hongbo said that Evgeni Plushenko will show up in the July show despite injuries.

    "Plushenko is Russia's hero. He was badly injured and will receive an operation that will repair a screw in his back that snapped. Indeed, we made great effort in persuading him to be part of our July performances."

    American figure skater Johnny Weir is a three-time U.S. national champion from 2004 to 2006. Known for his elegant style of skating, topped with flamboyant outfits and costumes, Johnny Weir will play the role of a concubine to a king in the "Artistry on Ice" show.

    Here's Zhao Hongbo again.
    "Our fans are all familiar with Johnny Weir. This year, he will perform to the classic piece of Chinese work, 'Farewell My Concubine.' I will also be in the performance, playing a warlord."

    I'm very excited for this show, what a superb lineup. I know there will probably be a lot of fancam videos, but does anyone know if it will be broadcast on tv at all?

    Thanks for all the information, Sylvia and iceflame. I'm also looking forward to perhaps some YouTube videos of the event. It would be fantastic if there was a broadcast of the show in the U.S.
