After a two-year break, the audience in Zurich’s Hallenstadion finally got to enjoy the magic of ice skating and music – Art on Ice 2023. The annual Swiss event was on tour this year in three cities: Zurich, Davos and Fribourg.
“The sold-out Hallenstadion and the standing ovation at the end of the show indicate that all the hard work beforehand was worth it,” said CEO, Reto Caviezel.
Due to family reasons, British superstar Rag‘n’Bone Man had to cancel his performance at the show so the organizers decided to have his songs interpreted by singers Marius Bear, Marc Sway and Judi Jackson.
Art on Ice also welcomed popsuperstar Melanie C and the Swiss singer Elle – two women who boast a hefty dose of power. Melanie C, also known as Sporty Spice from the iconic girl band Spice Girls, was enthusiastic about joining the Art on Ice family. European Song Contest star and Swiss solo artist Gjon’s Tears once again proved that he is made for the big stage and wowed spectators with his vocals.
This year’s music acts, impressive stage decoration, light show, dancers, acrobatic performers, and skaters provided the perfect background while Olympic and World champions dazzled the public with mind-bending moves and jumps. The Art on Ice 2023 team was happy to have athletes like Vanessa James and Eric Radford, Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, Loena Hendrickx, Jason Brown, Ilia Malinin, Deniss Vasiljevs, Alexa Knierim and Brandon Frazier, Kimmy Repond, Satoko Miyahara and Alexia Paganini.
