I'm sure V/M's Carmen will be fabulous in its own right, but I couldn't help it. :P

"Better late than Sinatra" is amazing. :rofl: I almost added Sinatra in some form to the title but then thought hey, why draw attention all season to the mysterious error.

If true, Notre Dame de Paris as a concept is perfect. It's the successor to Samson & Delilah I've been waiting for.

Right now, the only thing we do know is that it is NOT Carmen.

Have to give credit where its due...mollymgr said the "better late than Sinatra" in the last thread and I loved it!

And I'm just curious...has any uber war ever truly ended around here even after skaters retired? My feeling is the answer is no. Skating fans are nothing if not passionate.

Desperate...I don't like Notre Dame de Paris...I saw it in Verona some years ago,
what a bore ! I pray that Meryl and Charlie do a miracle ( if this rumour is right.)

I would have liked 'Better late than Sinatra' more. I think it's bad luck to make fun of rival's programs even before seeing them. And I am not saying this just because I like Tessa an Scott. I thought the same when pani made fun of Meryl and Charlie's (possible) FD. But, oh well.

Oh, by the way - although I understand that many fans want Meryl and Charlie to do something unexpected with 'Notre Dame', I'd really like to see Meryl in a glamorous take on the gypsy girl look :).

I really wish this title hadn't been chosen. It's like begging for trolls -_-.

I'm happy about Notre Dame. If it's indeed true. Even with the times it's been used before, it seems pretty well spaced out and not done by top teams recently like Ave Maria or Requiem. Since I can't remember the last time anyone skated to it, without googling (and let's face it the person we care most about boring is our self), it's all good to me.

Davis nor White have ever touted originality, but they do say they try to make things their own and not do anything recently done well. Phantom is hardly an unknown or unused piece of music, but they rocked it and set a standard for it. It hadn't been used for a while in dance, omitting juniors and I don't think anyone *felt* like they'd been hearing this music on repeat for a decade. DF obviously used for CD, but we haven't had those for a while and they turned it into a wonderful FD. They have a very classic and dramatic style, so there a very few dream pieces of music for them that would be 100% original. Very similar to Weir in that way.

Well, let's look at all the scenarios. We don't know what they are skating to because they haven't said it yet. Marina could give them Carmen too I guess :scream: but it has a 0.0000000000001% chance. The only thing that is certain is that it is not Carmen. I would recommend both teams to defect to Igor ASAP if this was the case. They could go back to Sinatra and then we would have fifty pages to bear through with a title wishing it wouldn't have happened. It was bad luck to be on thread #13. IMO, we are in the clear and ready to speculate again. The trolls will always be there come rain or shine.

People are free to ask the admins to change the thread title if they want, I won't be hurt. I'm in a snarky mood today.
