    It looks like the official website of Bolshoi on Ice are mixed the past show information.
    Here is the skaters list in the Korean website of the ticket company this year.

    I checked the yes24 ticket website. Here is additional informaion you may need.

    First, you should be aware that Yeosu is not Seoul, the capital city of Korea. This seaside expo city is located at the south-east corner of the country. From Seoul to Yeosu, it takes 5-6 hours either by bus or train. From Busan, it takes about 3 hours.

    I expect Yeosu will be crowdy during the expo.

    There is no show planned on Mondays, even on 5/28.

    As Nonko pointed out, the showtime information is rather confusing. The info from the official site does not match that of the ticketing site. According to yes24,

    During the weekdays (Tuesday-Friday except official Korean holidays)
    11 am only if there is a special group request
    8 pm

    During the weekends (Saturday, Sunday, official Korean holidays)
    2 pm
    6 pm

    Official Korean holidays: (5/28), 6/6, 8/15

    Running time including intermission: 160 minutes

    Show White, Marry Poppins, & Nutcracker will be performed as the 1st act of the day shows. Carmen, Swan Lake, & Spartaucs for the evening shows.

    I do not see the names of "Maria Petrova & Alexei Tikhonov" on the yes24 site. Since the tour consists of 3 seasons, frequent cast changes will be inevitable.

    Ticket Price:
    R 66,000 Korean Won (~ 60 USD)
    S 55,000 Korean Won (~ 50 USD)
    A 44,000 Korean Won (~ 40 USD)

    Only babies upto 24 month old will be admitted free.

    It seems that there are various ways to get discount tickets.

    WOW, these shows have a great cast! Good to see that Ilia Klimkin and Elena Sokolova still perform. And I'm really happy to see that Ksenia Makarova is on the cast. :cheer:

    I wish I could go to Korea and watch it. However, I too hope some FSUers who have the opportunity to see it live will post a review afterwards. :)

    Can I just ask what does this have to do with Bolshoi (ballet)? Why is it Bolshoi on Ice??

    The Bobrin company started to visit Korea several years back. I heard they used the name "Bolshoi" since Koreans were familiar with the ballet company.

    Now that's what I call clever marketing! :lol:

    The shows have changed the city and the schedule AGAIN!
    All the shows will come back to Yeosu.

    Alexei is in Korea now:rollin:

    The shows will happen every PM 2 from Wednesday thru Sunday. No shows on Monday or Tuesday.


    The rosters are Igor Bobrin, Alexei Yagudin, Dmitri Dmitrenko and so on.

    Many cities in Japan have direct flights to Seoul, so it’s not so difficulty to get flight tickets.
    And Korean express is useful between Seoul and Yeosu.

    Japanese fans, who cannot wait to see Alexei until Medal Winners Open in October, will go see him in Yeosu, Korea;)

    One of my friends went to see Bolshoi on Ice in Yeosu on July 20th.

    Alexei performed Winter and Sway.
    When I saw the show, he performed Winter with his original costume, but he performed it with a black shirt on July 19th. He succeeded clean 3T twice and performed great:)
    Sway got a shrill voice from high school students who were in seats. Unfortunately the ice rink was a worst condition, so he got wet when he did a somersault. Great performance, too;)

    Sorry, it was not on 19th, but on 20th.

    I was shocked the shows were cancelled on 21st and 22nd.
    Some of my friends went to see them from Japan:(
