    Sounds great! Selezneva-Makarov was a really good pair, and it will be nice to see them skate again, particularly to honor the Protopopovs who have been in this show for years.

    Will this be televised? Long ago this show used to be on TV every year.

    No, you're thinking of Harvard's annual "An Evening with Champions" benefit show that used to be televised by PBS as "An Evening of Championship Skating" -- link to this year's Harvard show in which the Protopopovs will perform once again: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79793

    AFAIK this Lake Placid show will not televised (unfortunately).
