    My alltime favorite is Klimova & Ponomorenko's "Don Quixote" exhibition. It was done at a Skate America exhibition around 1990. It portrayed 2 ballet dancers preparing for their pas de deux, then executing it & then leaving the arena. It told a complete story & was & is mesmerizing. (They did not compete in Sk.Am. that year, just performed the exhibition skate.)

    Yagudin 2002 Olympic gala
    Plushenko 2004 World gala
    Plushenko 2006 Olympic gala
    Mao Asada 2009 World gala
    Mao Asada 2010 World gala - very very very very difficult program, but she performed it with such passion and joy and easiness that nobody was aware how difficult a program it was. Absolutely stunning!

    That's mine , although there are a lot I'd have as "second place" including Todd's The Glory, Kurt's Antares, A&P's Susannah, Michelle's FOG, and lots of others I'm not thinking of at the moment.

    I'm really not a fan of gala programs, but I always love Mao's. Her tango and Caprice exhibitions have been outstanding. I wish she would turn one of them into an SP.

    Even though it's kind of cringe-worthy, and I'm not a fan of his, I always thoroughly enjoy Plush's 'Sex Bomb' if only because I can't stop laughing.

    Also, the cross dressing routine that Brasseur/Eisler did for their Worlds ex in the early 90s - not the later version they did as Pros, but the original one (that I can't find out youtube). Love it!

    Lol I was scared of that B&E routine when I was a kid and saw it. Sex Bomb is funny though.

    I love it too. I'm hoping she'll consider using the music for her new LP.
