OPERA POP ON ICE AND INTIMISSIMI

September 25, 2014

City of Love turned to a seductive and sensual weekend of alluring lingerie Opera Pop on Ice

INTIMISSIMI-ARENA-DI-VERONA-20-SEPTEMBER-2014-03

Special events happen rarely, and this was the most exhilarating, sensual, romantic and daring Opera I have ever seen before. For the first time on 20 and 21 of September 2014, Olympic ice figure skating champions together with international show business professionals and with the Italian lingerie company leader in Europe Intimissimi – celebrated ice skating and Opera show edition in the unique setting of Verona’s Arena.

For me it was the very first time to see the ice skating show live, a dreamlike beauty enveloped the impassioned harmony of skaters flying over the, literally hooked me up. Not just ice skating, but for the first time I had the chance to see live Pharell Williams, Kiesza and Intimissimi babes Ana Beatriz Barros, Irina Shayk, Bianca Balti, Katsia Zingarevich and Bianca Suarez.

It was Pharrell Williams who opened a surprise Saturday evening, a few hours before giving in turn the concert in Milan. Unforgettable evening with Opera, pop music, skating and fashion, combined with classical music and fascination of ice dance, kaleidoscopic settings and lighting effects.

The show was divided into two acts for an evening of pure entertainment: the Arena was transformed into a lake to the sound of waterfalls, than it became ice and icebergs, lit up by the flames of meteorites with fiery dances, embroidery with multicolor flares and diamond-like reflections in the Arena.

Among the other guests of the pop music scene, the American singer Anastacia, also the Italian singer Giorgia performed this weekend at Arena di Verona.

Below are the photos of the show and the red carpet of Intimissimi On Ice – Pop Opera at the Arena di Verona.

Starting from the success of one of the finest Ice Galas, “Opera on ice” devised by Giulia Mancini and held in the Arena di Verona in the past three editions, the new original musical format transformed the show into an excellent international level.
