Another team from China Jiayue WANG / Chongbo GAO

Do we need to go into the V/M thread and post video of every skater that has used Carmen?

:rolleyes: I'm not going to argue with you. You are incapable of carrying on anything resembling a conversation since you are too busy with whatever goes on in your head.



I'm interested to see what pieces of music they end up using. It's a very dense score. What does everyone else think about this choice (if it is correct)? Anyone have any pieces they'd like to see?

I like it, especially if it is something they have wanted to skate to for a long time (which means they'll likely be very committed to it as a concept and a program). Not overly familiar with the score but I'll go take a listen.

I hope Notre Dame is their FD! I love that music and think it will suit M/C very well!! :)

i don't think the nationality of the lyricist or composer matters this much, actually.

The song "Belle" from the musical was extremely popular in France, to the point of becoming the Song of the Year when it came out.


Oh, you mean like the exact reaction the V&M thread has had to V&M doing Carmen? I'd say something about people in glass houses but I suspect it would go over your head.

But I suspect the programs will speak for themselves.

I am totally sick of all the sniping going on in both threads. Some people seem to forget that there are people like me who are fans of both teams. I for one believe Carmen can be fresh if V/M are doing a showing a modern dance version, which we have never seen in ice dance. I'm also excited if D/W are doing the Notre Dame musical because it would fit their style well. Can we have real discussions instead of acting like children?

pаni, thank you for the links). I didn't mean that nobody has ever used this music. But I couldn't remember anything in contrast to Carmen, Tosca or Requem for a dream, for example. That's why I don't consider it as overused). This music is really beautiful - I'm not a fan of Belle because it's really VERY well-known and some years ago I heard it everywhere. But I love other songs.

Requem for a dream was used by C-L (full FD) and part by Domnina-Shabalin :D I mean ice dance.

I'm really, really excited to see what kind of costume Meryl comes up with for Notre Dame. I can't imagine she's not playing Esmeralda so there's a lot of potential for a really beautiful costume.

Skaters can take particular music for many years but not to do anything special with it or just not to do it memorable). But when you hear this music 3 times at Olympic Games during two warm-ups you feel like you heard it a thousand times)

Didn't we have two picked out at the end of the last thread? Now I don't remember what the other one was. We could do something about waiting impatiently for the season. I just can't think of anything clever. Lol.

You think Reqiem is overused, because single skaters choose it too many times. That all :D
