Holiday On Ice 2012

The Brighton Centre has announced that from Friday 13th January 2012 they will host the UK premiere of Tropicana - The Passion Tour, a brand new show from Holiday on Ice.

The Centre says that created and choreographed by Olympic champion, Robin Cousins MBE, TROPICANA takes you on a journey that celebrates love, life, music and dance in one of the most thrilling ice spectaculars you will ever see!

Robin Cousins visits Heart. Robin Cousins' love of skating and desire for artistic excellence has given us some of the most unforgettable performances ever seen on ice.  In TROPICANA Robin invites you to share his dance and musical inspirations - from the high octane rock 'n' roll of fifties America to a smouldering bolero and the steamy Latin rhythms of a tropical night club - brought to life by a cast of over 40 world class skaters.

As well as offering an original musical score, TROPICANA features interpretations of some of the best loved songs from world-renowned songwriter Barry Manilow including 'I Can't Smile Without You', the iconic 'Mandy' and the one and only 'Copacabana'.  
Robin comments:  "A few years ago I was working with Barry Manilow on a TV Special and I found his music works just as great skating should. It flows beautifully and soars in all the right places!  There's passion and power in the songs and that's what I've always tried to convey in the shows I create, so I am absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity to showcase this wonderful music in  TROPICANA and hope this will add a new dimension to the audience's enjoyment of these great songs."
