    Farewell Show: Chemnitz skating pair receive honorary prize of the City

    With a large ice show in Chemnitz Arena, the figure skaters Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy say goodbye to their fans. The show "Imagine On Ice" is listed twice according to the organizers today. There are only a few tickets still available. The Revue is the last major highlight of the joint career of skating pair. Thereafter, the two want to go their separate ways. Szolkowy wants to end claims to his career, Savchenko plans to continue with a new partner. Her parents have traveled from Ukraine to witness the event in the audience.

    In the Ice Gala both multiple world and European champions will also get presented the honorary prize of the city of Chemnitz. "Aliona and Robin have over ten years set the standards in international pair of running," Mayor Barbara Ludwig said in anticipation. "They have continued to figure skating history the city of Chemnitz in an outstanding way. They have their sports, their country and their city represents impressive. Uniquely, they have united sporting excellence and artistic standards that touches millions of people worldwide and enthusiastic. The Speedwell want to tell the city of Chemnitz `Thank you. '" The price has been awarded only four times. The previous winners are figure skating coach Jutta Müller, who also sits in the audience today, as well as discus-Olympic champion Lars Riedel, track cycling Olympic champion Jens Fiedler and the urban watchman Stefan Weber.
    Looking forward to reading reports/impressions of the show!

    No. Can we keep this thread about the show only, please?

    I was there, and it was great. Best acts for me were: of S/S good bye skate with "Stay" from Hurts, seeing Stefan Lindemann again, Carolinas Bolero, and finally being able to see Totmianina/ Marinin Peter Liebers rocked the ice rink. It was hard to pick a favourite performance.
    The one I missed (who was announced to come) was Florent Amodio. Has anybody an idea why he wasn´t there?

    Announcement from Ingo after the first show: there will be a next show in December 2015.

    Amodio is doing a post-Olympic tour with the rest of the French team. I'm surprised he was even announced as a cast member.

    I hope some pics & video will show up

    Amodio was listed originally on the website but I noticed his name was later removed.

    Thanks for these S/S show photo links!

    ETA: And thank you, Irish-Angel, for sharing your thoughts!

    Hi Lily, thank you very much for the pictures!
    Sarah Meier was as great and beautifully elegant as ever, with great spins and a nice footwork Unfortunately I can´t tell you to which music she skated. That was a little sad because for me it would have been interesting. No information in the program booklet as well The best thing for me was the ending, where the fans (including me) came down right to the ice rink and gave standing ovations to all the skaters and to celebrate all of them.

    Thanks for the report and the links to the photos. Sad to see their last show.(Is it really their last appearance together in shows?) It's nice to hear they were celebrated by fans in the very end of their career. Bitter and sweet.

    They are still listed on the cast of 'All That Skate' in Korea next week (May 4 to 6). I really hope that they will skate.

    Considered that with "they" you mean S/S, I don´t think so . It is rumored, that Aliona will skate with Bruno there. Robin has called off all shows.

    Szolkowy has not yet decided where his further career path leads. "I've enjoyed the time, but now I'm not falling into a hole"
