One of my favorites is the opening of Sasha's "Malaguena."

Adams gentle glide on one skate in the opening of Cinema Paradiso is just beyond beautiful.

Talking about exhibition, Michelle Kwan's East of Eden had something special :

I'll ditto the G/P Requiem:

In this video, it is especially spell binding since there is nothing preceding the dance. There is something so powerful in the thumping beat and their slow rise across the ice.

oh, the old school Tarasova. The OTT Drama and executed so perfectly. I miss those days.

This! Awesome opening! Amazing program! :)

Yes never mind the opening the whole dance is fantastic:)

It's only one of a few programmes that actually gives me goose bumps especially leading up to the part where Marina lifts Gwendal into that awesome split position lift :eek:
Should have won no doubt about it :rolleyes:

I agree on 100%. I think A/P should be clearly 3 time world champions, it's incredible they have only one title.:(

Back to the topic, I think A/P had very spectacular opening choreographies and especially starting positions from 1998 to 2002. Carmina and Liberta ones were very interesting as well:)

And Blanc/Bouquet had always great choreography, not only opening:D

Jeffrey Buttle's "Aararat" 2008 when he won Worlds. He is so graceful and did a perfect program.

No love for the masters of the get-your-attention-opening lifts, The Siudeks. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqATVfuthi4) One of the few of the many skaters to use music to The Mission effectively. You know you've got the audience when the applause starts before the program even begins.

Oksana Baiul's flamenco short program from 1993. (http://youtu.be/9PQBBXDId-g)..the beginning makes me swoon....
Me too! Both flamenco short programs actually! I wish I'd been around to see her in her prime. Must have been so exciting! :swoon:

I also love the opening of Katarina's 'Carmen', MK's 'Desdemona', 'Taj Mahal' and Salome!

Gotta miss the Siudeks and their out-of-this-world lifts. Sorry for going a bit off-topic here, but the lifts in this video are so breathtaking! Just look at the entrances! and the effortless changing of positions. Damn, I wish today's teams would watch some of their performances and learn, the lifts now got far less exciting.

Is it bad that this is one of my favorite pieces of opening choreography? :lol:

I love the moment when he lifts her up. So light and graceful. Miss them :(
