    Thank you for the topic
    Miki Ando's wasn't so bad

    so is Shizuka's version

    They truly are the most balletic ice dancers and I am not trying to twist the topic but how about Summertime ( there is a ballet version of "Porgy and Bess" besides the opera and the musical)

    It is mostly jazzlike and is not as balletic as the next two programs

    I had never seen that program (Summertime) of Usova-Zhulin. They were gorgeous. I did not feel this was ballet music though; may be modern dance? Everything they did was balletic, graceful, beautiful.

    Is 'Prince Igor' a ballet? B&B skated to it (88 Oly), and also Ina & Dungjen (98 Oly)

    Ilia has done several programs using music from the Nutcracker but this is far and away the best - I think one of his best pro programs period. 2003 Ice Wars. Just marvelous! For five years out from his OGM, extra marvelous.

    Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-hQp1zd00Y

    I love D&W's Giselle - really great on their part and brilliant by Zueva.

    Thank you very much, lala. I can't remember that exhibition, I don't think I've ever seen it before. It was quite lovely.
