Duolingo announces the world’s first multilingual musical

Duolingo (NASDAQ: DUOL), the world’s leading language learning platform, today announced the world’s first multilingual musical, “Duolingo on Ice” in partnership with global ticketing innovator SeatGeek, just in time for April Fools’ Day. 

 “Duolingo on Ice” follows Duo the Owl and friends on a magical journey around the world as they teach a series of fun lessons, by any means necessary. The four-hour skating spectacle is filled with catchy songs like “Spanish or Vanish” and “French or the Trench” that your family will not be able to stop singing.

 “At Duolingo, our characters help make learning languages fun and entertaining - even Duo, our pushy owl mascot. By partnering with SeatGeek and hiring top entertainment talent to develop this show, we’re bringing our cast of characters to audiences in an entirely new and mesmerizing way,” said George Audi, head of global partnerships at Duolingo. “We’re getting the word out about this masterpiece on ice through a marketing campaign that includes ads in Times Square, behind-the-scenes footage, and a partnership with SeatGeek as the exclusive ticketing provider of “Duolingo on Ice”.”

 The show is directed by Golden Globe winner Jason Woliner, most known for directing the second Borat film, Paul T. Goldman, and episodes of Nathan for You. Choreography is by two-time Emmy award winner Kathryn Burns who felt creatively inspired by the project saying “I had always dreamed of choreographing a corporate owl mascot ice-skating scene.”

 “SeatGeek knows a hot event when we see one, and Duo's spellbinding antics on ice are poised to draw big crowds. It's more than a show, it's a ticket to witness history in the making,” said Sarah Kettler, VP of Marketing & Communications at SeatGeek.

 “Duolingo on Ice” sounds too magical to be real, so be sure to check out www.seatgeek.com/duolingo for the full details on this show. Fans can also use the code ‘APRILFOOLS2024’ to redeem an offer for one free month of Super Duolingo and $20 off their next SeatGeek purchase.
