Russian Figure Skating Stars to Put on Gala Concert for Russia–Africa Summit and Economic Forum Participants

Russian figure skating stars will put on a world-class gala concert at the Ice Cube multifunctional arena in Sochi’s Olympic Park on 24 October as part of the cultural programme of the Russia—Africa Summit and Economic Forum.

Guests will have the chance to see a world-class ice show that synthesizes figure skating, drama theatre, music, a circus, and advanced scenographic technologies.

Yekaterina Ivanova, an Honoured Culture Worker of the Russian Federation and head of the Roscongress Foundation’s Creative Projects Directorate, said the organizers spent a long time thinking about how to surprise the participants in the largest event in the history of Russian—African relations. «The Summit and the Economic Forum mark a new level of relations between Russia and countries of the African continent. We expect more than 40 heads of states, more than 200 CEOs from major companies and inter-regional associations, and ministers of key industries. A gala concert featuring figure skating stars combines the cultural and sports component, which is something that our country is traditionally famous for. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate the cordiality and openness with which Russia addresses our guests from African countries», Ivanova said.

The Summit and the Economic Forum participants will also be able to visit some of the top museums, concert halls, and sites of Sochi.

For more on the cultural programme, please see the special section on the official website of the events.

The Russia—Africa Summit and Economic Forum will take place on 23-24 October in Sochi at the Sirius Park of Science and Art. The events are being organized by the Roscongress Foundation, and the co-organizers of the Russia—Africa Economic Forum are Russian Export Center and Afreximbank.
