  • Description

    AUSTRIAN ICE-SKATING STAR REGINE HEITZER -- AN OLYMPIC SILVER MEDALLIST AND DOUBLE WINNER OF THE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP -- FACES STIFF COMPETITION FROM AN ICE-HOCKEY TEAM IN THE CURRENT VIENNA ICEREVUE. THE TEAM IS MADE UP ENTIRELY OF SPECIALLY TRAINED CHIMPANZEES, AND THEIR ANTICS ON ICE ARE CURRENTLY WINNING THE HEARTS OF VIENNESE AUDIENCES.

    THE CHIMPS HAVE THOROUGHLY MASTERED THEIR SPORT. BUT WITH A FEW TRICKS OF THEIR OWN -- LIKE MOVING THE GOALS TO AVOID LIKELY SCORING SHOTS -- THE REFEREE HAS HIS TIME CUT OUT CONTROLLING HIS EXUBERANT PLAYERS.

    CHIMPS APART, THE CURRENT ICE REVUE HAS BEEN STAGED ON A LAVISH SCALE. FIVE HUNDRED EXTRAVAGANT NEW COSTUMES WERE DESIGNED FOR THE SHOW, SUPPLEMENTED BY SOME SPECTACULAR PROPS.

    SEVERAL NEW TUNES HAVE BEEN SPECIALLY COMPOSED BY THE MUSICAL DIRECTOR, ROBERT STOLZ, AND CHOREOGRAPHED BY EDITH PETTER, WHO HAS BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REVUE'S PRODUCTION NUMBERS FOR THE LAST 17 YEARS. SHE'S THE WIFE OF THE SHOW'S DIRECTOR, WILL PETTER, WHO HAS WON HIGH NATIONAL HONOURS FOR HIS WORK.

    THIS IS THE 33RD YEAR OF THE VIENNA ICE REVUE. THE COMPANY SPEND MUCH OF THE YEAR ON TOUR IN EUROPE, RETURNING TO VIENNA EVERY CHRISTMAS.
