Swan Lake On Ice!

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Thanks to mangy_mongrel, I found out that Swan Lake on Ice is coming to my country from 12 September to 16 September at the Esplanade. (If you're getting tickets, Sistic outlets here!) Five tonnes of ice are going to be brought into the Esplanade (fascinating omg I wish I could see the setup!), and this is how the theatre's turned into a skating rink!

According to the international schedule, the cast is presently performing in Tokyo. The skaters are the Imperial Ice Stars, and here's the Swan Lake On Ice story. If the photographs are anything to go by, it's going to pretty impressive! The shot that impressed me the most were Fire on Ice.

Aaaand, here's Johnny Weir's 2006 Olympics Short Program: The Swan. ;) Jimmy from Blades of Glory was more-than-a-little modeled on him. ;) Check out the Kiss and Cry on this one, and the previous link. ;) Also, Johnny Weir 2006 Exhibition: Doin' It My Way. song2sing makes pretty good Johnny Weir icons, and this animated moodtheme has more than a few Jimmy-moments. Icons 42-48 here totally show the similarity of Johnny's The Swan to Jimmy's The Peacock. *laughing helplessly*. And Icons 1 - 22 here are so Jimmy.

Snowflake Moodtheme! (Not really, but it makes me think of Blades's Snowflake. Only for sponsored accounts, though. It's very cute, but it also turns into Pepsi logos sporadically).

Gah! I want to see that! T.T I thought you knew already, though? O.o

... I wish there was some way to go to Berlin or Monaco. =/ Oh well, I'm sure we'll get an ice show soon. Disney On Ice probably! ^^;;

OOH! Do you and mangy_mongrel (or anyone else?) need a re-upload for School For Scoundrels, or have you both seen it already? It was posted on blades_of_glory but I don't want to download it unless you say it's worth it. *g*

MORE OH! Guess who's going to be the owner of one of those Stockholm Bears! xD

LiveJournal is hasn't been giving me any comment notifications for a while, so if there's anything I missed (or if you want a re-upload/anything?) then I think it's best if you poke me through e-mail. =/ I'm sure I'm not the only one - but no one on MSN seems to be having this problem except me? >.>

.... fdlqkjskqls! Apologies for weird Engrish! O.o I just woke up. *hides!*

Sadly, I don't have anymore space until I can get my hands on a DVD burner, so that's a 'No, I haven't seen it.' But I might be renting it sometime!
18th-Aug-2007 05:36 pm (UTC)
xD Hee! I'm a little amused that both of you have no more space... I can't seem to fill up my laptop, no matter how hard I try. *laughs*

I'm sending off a parcel to aefallen soon, so I'll try to remember and include an extra CD for you. :) I don't have any spare CDs lying around here but I'll probably get some on Monday!

I have to go out and play badminton with my father (he's impatient!), so I'm sorry if this sounds rushed or makes no sense at all. xD
18th-Aug-2007 07:50 pm (UTC)
Oooh! Ta ever so muchly!

It's probably because I have gallons and gallons of anime, hah! About the hard drive being full, that is. And don't worry, it made sense! ;)
17th-Aug-2007 01:50 pm (UTC)
Waaah that looks so cool! I wish I could tag along ^_^ and we could make Chazz/Jimmy jokes together *hee* Is there a Peacock Pond on Ice, too?
19th-Aug-2007 04:36 am (UTC)
*HUGS TIGHT!* I wish you could come, too! *MISSES, TERRIBLY* And we could completely make Chazz/Jimmy and Blades jokes together! ;) Along the lines of how Jimmy would love one of those costumes, but that Chazz would die before he'd get into one. ;) Or need a lot of, *cough*, convincing.

XDDDD!!!! If there isn't a peacock pond on ice, there SHOULD be! Jimmy can be the Princess Peacock! ;)

I got tickets!!!!
19th-Aug-2007 04:34 am (UTC) - !!!
! You do?! ♥ What day and which session are you going to? *beams* We might even see each other then! ;)
19th-Aug-2007 02:36 pm (UTC) - Re: !!!
12th September, the night show!! How about you? Now I know I must keep an eye out for Weir. Hee hee.
19th-Aug-2007 02:57 pm (UTC) - *grin!*
I've not bought tickets yet, but I will definitely tell you my timing when I do! ;) ♥ I personally think coming home from an afternoon show is easier, but watching a show at night always has a different, more glamorous feeling! ;)

Sadly, Weir's not in this show - apologies if I've misled you, I happened to link him just because he skated in a swan costume. I wish he was in the show, but if he was, the ticket prices would probably be twice what they are now, and he would be ONE NIGHT ONLY. Hee.
19th-Aug-2007 03:02 pm (UTC) - Re: *grin!*
what a pity! But it's alright, I bought the tickets waaaayyyy before I watched Blades of Glory. I like watching ice skating, ballet, gymnastics (not like that would appear as a performance any time soon), etc. hahahaha!
19th-Aug-2007 04:52 pm (UTC) - :D!
Oh my heavens, you watched Blades of Glory? *beams* I didn't know! BUT OH MY HEAVENS if you watched that movie in theatres: that means that... you bought the tickets in MAY? MY GOD I FEEL REALLY REALLY SLOW.

I like watching all the abovementioned activities, but probably not as much as you. ;) I like 'em, but... I'd probably prefer a good movie over them. I didn't know you liked watching ice skating, though, COOL! ;) The Fuji Ice Palace rink at Jurong occasionally has skating exhibitions that are pretty cool, I'll let you know if I know of/am heading down for one! ;)
20th-Aug-2007 02:35 pm (UTC) - Re: :D!
Ah no, I watched it on the plane back from Hong Kong back to Singapore!! hee hee. Was very disturbed that they have now moved onto making incest the new gay thing. Just liked in Epic movie they made beastiality the new gay thing. As in last time in movies/shows, when they want you to go yuck, they put in gays, now they moved on to incest and beastiality. I wonder what's going to be next.
20th-Aug-2007 02:40 pm (UTC) - ! Got my tickets!
Bought my tickets today! I'm watching mine on Saturday, 15th of September, in the afternoon. We won't be in the same session, but we can sure talk about it together! ♥

! I sob at incest as the new gay thing! I really didn't like the incestuous couple in that movie, I thought they were NASTY and not nice and I disliked them. But bestiality, urk. But I like your perspective on pushing back the audience boundaries of EW. :) Homosexuality is now too common and accepted to afford more than the standard laughs, so for shock value they want MORE.

Are you catching this? XD I'm catching it with my mom on the 15th Sept.
19th-Aug-2007 12:14 pm (UTC)
I hope to! ;) I really want to catch this! I haven't got tickets yet, though. ;) Plan to be watching it with a friend, but I wonder if we'll agree on which seats to get. XD I'm of the mind that if I see something like this I don't mind paying a little more for the good seats. ;) (Having once had rubbish seats, I will now save my money for the GOOD seats)
19th-Aug-2007 03:32 pm (UTC)
Student tickets be $50, only at night though. T__T And in the general region of where we sat the last time to watch Le Nozze di Figaro.

I will definitely not be able to go on the 13th, but still have to check for the rest.

2pm shows are okay as well.
19th-Aug-2007 03:39 pm (UTC)
Wait. Screw that. I'll just not go to work on the 13th. Coz it looks like the good tickets are selling out for the weekend, including the Friday show.

Do you know of any other people (we just need 2 more) who want to go for Swan Lake on Ice? We could get the Family Package at $84.50 per person for Cat 1 seats at the 2pm show.
19th-Aug-2007 04:49 pm (UTC) - OH MY GOD. Are you free tomorrow?
if tickets are selling out, we better get there as fast as we can. Or is Tuesday the earliest you can meet? I can meet anytime Monday before 1.30pm and after 7.30pm.

I can make it during the week for the show. But is it difficult for you?

I don't know yet of anyone who wants to watch the show, but I'll ask around? I'll also need to check if the 2pm show is okay 'cause I've class on certain days where the timing will clash.
19th-Aug-2007 05:54 pm (UTC) - WAIT YES I AM!
Um. Kind of. I can meet you for an hour from 12:30 - 1:30! YAY! SMS me on where to meet! I'm thinking the Esplanade, and maybe we can twist their armsask them politely to show us what the view actually looks like! I know the booth there opens from 12nn onwards! Bugis has a counter as well! The other ones that I know of are at Tampines (too far for me!) and at Jurong Point (too far for you!)

Tuesday I'm actually free from 2pm onwards, but the problem arises because it takes me an hour to go ANYWHERE from school XP so it becomes 3pm.

Also, 2pm shows are only on the weekend. So, not so difficult about that. And also, I only need to go in to 'work' (more like slavery :P) when I am free, so that's (kind of) ok! Besides, there are only 8pm shows on the weekdays.
19th-Aug-2007 04:50 pm (UTC)
I'm kinda wondering if I want to pay a little more for a better seat, because to me there's no point in saving money on tickets only to not get a good view of what's going on. I don't really want to sit at the Figaro seats for ice-skating, but we'll see what we can work out? Either way we'll try to go on the same night! Or afternoon. ;)
27th-Aug-2007 07:02 am (UTC) - Swan Lake on ice
I have seen it in Osaka. Sensational show! Don't miss this one if you love skating and love dancing!!

Have a look at the comments left on their website...it is a ice show which will take your breath away!
