PRESS RELEASE

Arena di Verona for Opera on Ice 2013
Costumes turned into works of art, floating somewhere between past and present
Verona, September 28, 8.30 p.m.


Verona, September 25, 2013 – Preparations for Opera on Ice are reaching the final stage. The show
brings together operatic music and figure skating. Scheduled for September 28 at the Arena di Verona,
the largest opera house in the world, the event features the world's most celebrated ice skating
champions interpreting the best known arias of world-famous operas, performed by the Orchestra and
sung by the Arena di Verona Choir, and solo opera singers of international renown.
New for this edition is the tribute to Luciano Pavarotti, developed in partnership with the Foundation
created by Nicoletta Mantovani: all the cast's athletes (who will compete in the Soči 2014 Olympics) will
dance to the "Nessun dorma"
, accompanying the Maestro's rendition of the famous Turandot aria for the
Olympic Games of Turin 2006. That "Nessun dorma" is the last live performance of Pavarotti ever
recorded and its video is part of the travelling exhibition "AMO Pavarotti," hosted these days by the
Palazzo Forti in Verona.
...

THE COSTUMES
Opera on Ice is the only on-ice event to feature costumes created exclusively and especially for the
whole cast of the show. The organizers, always looking for something new for each edition of the show
decided this year to dress all its characters with the real costumes of operas and thus they sought the
help of theatre stage costume designer Lorena Marin. The 2013 edition's “wardrobe” features 15
costume changes for the 16 arias. The drawings are the following:

1) “CARMEN” - in partnership with the Fashion Ground Academy school that, together with Playlife
(Gruppo Benetton) created the costumes reinterpreting the Carmen's theme in a new, unusual light
inspired by colour and decorations of 19th century Spain. Combining Spanish tradition with the modernity
of Playlife dresses will surely yield a surprise for the public of all ages with Carolina Kostner playing
Carmen, Bizet's passionate gypsy;
Image

2) “DANCE OF THE HOURS” – The costume developed by Fashion Ground Academy in partnership
with Lorena Marin for Carolina Kostner portrays, in a really impressive way, the hypnotic allure of the
metaphysical passing of the hours. Kostner will be accompanied by the 12 Hot Shivers, dressed with the
costumes supplied by the Arena di Verona Foundation;
Image

3) “AIDA” - as usual the closing act of the show will be Triumph March from Aida. This time the cast will
be dressed in the costumes used for the 1913 staging of the opera, provided by Milan's Casa d’Arte
Fiore, a great honour for Opera on Ice, as well as an occasion to remember the bicentennial of the birth
of Giuseppe Verdi and the centenary of the Arena Festival.
Image

MUSIC
Carmen, Aida, Madama Butterfly, Turandot, Roméo et Juliette and Carmina Burana are just some
of the works whose arias will be sung by great singers accompanied by more than 200 musicians and
singers of the Verona Orchestra and Choir directed by Maestro Fabio Mastrangelo who is
humorously called “the most famous Italian-born Russian director” and who has recently been appointed
Supervisor and Artistic Director of the famous Saint Petersburg theatre Music Hall, from 2007 he is
also Permanent Guest Director at the famous “Mariinskij” theatre in Saint Petersburg. His début at the
Verona Arena was in 2011 with Gounod's Roméo et Juliette, an opera that he will direct in January 2014
at the “Novaja Opera” Moscow theatre.

THE CAST

THE SINGERS

will delight the Arena public with excerpts from “Tosca”, “Traviata” and “Rigoletto” as well as Schubert's

the Centennial's Festival 2013;
Elisa Balbo, Italian soprano from Bordighera, a Verdi Conservatory (Milan) student recently chosen by
the Pavarotti Foundation to sing in New York;
Natalia Roman, soprano, from Drochia (Moldova).
Last but not least, the voices' cast features two young soloists: the Verona mezzo Alice Marini and tenor
Stefano Tanzillo from Cosenza.
The September 28 repertoire and cast have been carefully selected by the Fondazione Arena di
Verona, directed by Maestro Paolo Gavezzeni.
...

Some figures
200: the members of the Arena di Verona Choir and Orchestra. 800: the size (in square metres) of the
ice rink. 35,000: the litres of water needed to build the rink, corresponding to about 1,600,000 ice cubes.
Under the rink 1,088 pipes run for about 43,520 metres, requiring about 400 kw of electric pwer overall,
plus 650 kw of refrigerator power enough to keep 150 two-room apartments cool. Building up all of this
ice requires 42 hours, and 700 hours are needed, on the whole, to build the rink, 900 Kw of heat power
are needed by the diesel oil boiler to thaw the rink after the event is ended.

Ticket Info
The event is just a few days away and ticket pre-sale is sailing at full speed towards the “sold out” as it
happened in the previous editions. The last tickets are available on Ticketone (http://www.ticketone.it), at the
Geticket points of sale, at the Unicredit bank branches (go to http://www.geticket.it to find the nearest ticket
point).
