    They skated to Amami Alfredo (La Traviata) in the first half. Anna was wearing a red dress and at the beginning she was dancing next to a table (because the character is writing at that moment). Then Luca arrived and they started to dance together. IMO that song was very difficult to interpret because the Opera singers were not just singing, but talking too, and Anna and Luca could portray with their body movements and facial expressions every single word that the singers were saying. If you don't spek Italian, I recommend you to first read the lyrics of the song and then watch their video.
    In the second half they skated to Cavatina di Figaro (Barbiere di Siviglia). Luca was the barber, of course. He interpreted the part very well. At the beginning he was alone, dancing and interpreting the character. Then other skaters (the barber's clients) arrived, he asked them if they needed anything from him and they all refused his services. Then Anna came, wearign a beautiful white dress. She started to play with Luca (if you go further you can see other photos of their performance). Also in this song there are parts where the singer is just talking and not singing, and again, Anna and Luca were able to portray on the ice every single word. Luca was great in interpreting Figaro, and you could tell that Anna loved performing wearing those gorgeous costumes, which IMO helped her getting into the part even more.
    My favourite costume is the second one, they both look SO elegant :)

    Oooops, no I like them a lot and I have no idea why I forgot about them in my report ... sorry! Pingu summarized their programs really well. They looked beautiful and the costumes were cool. I sat at the side of the rink so it was hard to interpret their facial expressions as they were mostly facing the front of the crowd. But their skating was beautiful no matter what!

    Oh, it's nothing. Probably I was being a bit too mean :D - although not intentionally. Thank you :).

    Of course, like everybody who was performer on the show. I think he was very polite. You know, he was invited in last year, too, but he was injured in last autumn. As you can see he has so many fans in Italy, the organizers knew it, of course.

    I don't know. Yes, that was so beautiful show in beautiful historical place. I was in Verona and in the Arena, but with the skating show it would be an incredible trip.

    The first link has a few pictures of Plushenko, the second has hundreds of pictures (that's where I took the pics of Anna and Luca) and it would be impossible to link every single picture. I can link some of them, if you want.

    thank you. It would be nice to get some great shot of Carolina if you can, but otherwise it's ok. I already got many links from all of you
