Ilia Averbukh produces ice shows for children in the winter holidays every year. This year the title is “Mama” and the theme is for families.
It is more than Ice Show. He named it Ice Musical. Skaters do not show their own performances only, but the performances and music go on thru the story.
I'm sure it would be a fantastic New Year present for children and all of people.
Hopefully they will come and play in the world in a future

I went to see the shows Jan. 2-4.
Yagudin plays the role “Parrot”. He is just like the Sun! Everyone has a happy time just staying with him. It is the same with Alexei himself!
He does not only skate, but also plays the roll "Parrot" in a lot of scenes. He plays a lot per show. And they make 3 shows per day.
I was afraid if he got exhausted, but he looked cheerful and energetic and played the Parrot with joy.
Tatiana Totmianina plays the main role “Mama goat”. She has 7 fawns.
Maxim Marinin plays the role “Wolf”. He loves her a lot.
Alexei Tikhonov plays the role “Bear” and Maria Petrova plays the role “Honeybee”. They like everyone, and everyone likes them.
The arena was full in all shows and a lot of children came to see them live, enjoyed the show and danced in seats.
I was very happy to see nice shows and Alexei skate in them.
What a lucky start of a new year!
