    Ah but that's the challenge. Six months ago I didn't think they would be able to do anything with Carmen to make it memorable but they surprised us. A&P for me have the most memorable program to R&J but I can easily imagine now (after having seen Carmen) they could make me forget anyone else skated to R&J. You're probably right that they won't take it but I think it would be a great program. I can also imagine I&K or C&L skating to it and wouldn't be shocked to see D&W pick it but I'd love to see Tessa and Scott skate to it as I LOVE the music and nobody can tell a story (especially a love story) like those two.

    something like cavalleria rusticana or pavane pour une enfante defute?
    or maybe not because they dont seem "uplifting" enough
    ngl i can kinda picture them dancing to alexander nevsky but im not so certain
    or what about selections from the atonement soundtrack (minus the chapel music part) i can personally picture them rocking the typewriter section

    I'm absolutely crazy over Prokofiev's R & J and admit I have totally pictured VM skating to it in my dreamworld.

    Hope everyone had an amazing, gorging filled, celebratory holidays!

    Thanks. Bwahahaha at this one. Is is incredibly weird to say that I think it would be cool if V&M wore their practice outfits, with maybe some modifications for competition? I think it would add even more to the 'modern dance' aspect of Carmen. Besides, they look good in them. :shuffle:

    A lot off people thinking Tessa look better in practice outfit. I think thats why T-S usually use practice outfit for first practice - t show the difference :)
    Maybe they will have new costumes at Nationals? But i LOVE Scott outfit in Carmen so much.

    There's some really fabulous music in the score of the ballet "Raymonda" . Not too familiar , so wouldn't be overused.. but should be well known in Russia....

    That's just one thought ..Um , what else ....

    So, guys, who will go see Canadian Nationals?
    Will you see practice? Hw do you think, will we have some great photos and back-stage videos?
    Sad they will not show FD "live". So i hope to read some reports on FSU.

    I wonder if there will be videos on the TSN website like last year. I believe that's how we saw the programs. Anyways I'm excited I was going through withdrawals. I'm most interested in what costumes they'll have; will they stick with the old ones or try new ones. Also what alterations they've made to the programs.

    Yes, it was great to see FD on the TSN website last year. Hope we could see something on youtube.
    I hope they will made interview before Nationals and will tell something about costumes and what they made with programs.

    Maybe we'll get to watch something live on the Radio Canada website, like last year?

    I don't think they'll change any of the costumes (I like what they're wearing for both programs, anyway).

    They usually have interviews at Nationals. Anyways I'm just excited to see them!

    I actually love all their costumes too particularly Scott's FD costume. Tessa's FD costume I don't know though.

    Scott's FD costume is fabulous. Tessa said that her mom did the FD costumes this year, right? Wow. Kate really knows what looks good on Scott. ;)

    Yes, she said she was too busy, so mom worked on there costumes. I think Scott costume look similar to what guys used in CSOI group numbers.
    I think Scott worked with Anna very well and look very good this season.
    And Tessa said her dress has some elemуnts was painted be hands. So this costumes is a big part of Carmen.

    I know that most posters here are not really in love with Tessa's "Carmen" dress, but I really think it is elegant and very classy. I was happy she didn't go with red. If she does change her outfit, I truly hope she doesn't change from the grey/black of her current costume.

    That's funny cuz I feel like it's the opposite. Most people love her costume as is and I've only seen a couple other people say they would like to see her in a new one. But I agree with you about the color, it should stay black/gray. I don't even know why I would like to see her in another dress because the current one really is beautiful. I guess I feel like it doesn't really "match" Scott's and doesn't appear as "modern" as his.

    I was watching YT vids of Carmen and C/L's version popped up and she has a black dress now too!

    the dress is pretty, especially in closeups, but i don't like the mood it sets. in practice and in practise gear, the fd is soooooo sexy. there was an immediate and visceral reaction to the sexiness when it debuted at skate canada. some people thought, about time. they loved how much it oozed sex, lust, sensuality. ... others were grossed out, because those posters felt like every single part the fd was drenched in sex. when she skates "carmen" with the dress, that's all gone. it becomes heavy, dark, gothic and the mood is completely changed. for example, in the dress, scott grabs fabric and it's a move. when they're in practice gear, scott is clearly grabbing her ass and it's really, really hot.

    to me, bring the sexy back. without that sexiness, sensuality, provocativeness, lust ... they do the elements, but a lot the impact is lost. those qualities give an extra dimension to the dance that elevate it beyond a typical free dance into something that's purely epic.

    im thinking it has something to do with the bottom of that dress. to me, the top looks hot enough but the bottom dilutes the sexiness of the costume. i love the detailing on the sleeves and bodice but the costume might look sexier with just sheer black sleeves. the bottom of that dress could be made sleeker as well

    I absolutely love Tessa's Carmen dress. I think it fits perfectly with their Carmen interpretation.

    I wouldn't change a thing except for getting rid of the fishnet stockings, but that's a minor detail and for me it doesn't take away from the perfection of the dress.

    I think you hit the nail on the head and said what I was thinking about Tessa's dress, but couldn't articulate. The mood of the program is slightly altered in practice clothes versus when they perform in their costumes (I should say costume cuz the issue is with Tessa's dress for me, I love Scott's). The impact of the program is still there for me too, but not to the same level as in the practice footage that I've been wondering why they seem so much more passionate in practice than in competition.

    BTW it's nice to see people's different perceptions of this.

    The dress may win kudo's for it's "fashion-week fab" but I think it diminishes her beauty and destroys the sexiness of the piece. I'm with iggie on this.

    I think most of us agree that she looks really wonderful in her practice outfits. We all love the beauty of the clear and elegant lines and wonderful extensions. I agree that there is a freedom of movement achieved in the practices that doesn't necessarily translate into actual competition. Unfortunately the rules don't allow these outfits in competition :(. Perhaps this will change in the future. But I would hate to see ice dancers wearing outfits like S&S in the pairs programmes. JMO

    Really? Did you have link? I dont like how Igor copy all what T-S did and look like he had a war with V-M. Did he really think D-W will work with him again?

    As for Tessa dress. I love this dress and i love how she look in this dress. But this is truth - Tessa alwayse look better in practice outfit, than in any dress. In dress her legs didnt look so long.
    Will see what they will change before Nationals. Interesting, where they work now.

    I went looking at YT vids and at Findlandia, it seemed she wore red and black
    By the time they got to TEB and later, it was all red

    I wonder whether Tessa could wear something like what she wore for Pink Floyd - very simple tights with a small skirt. Bobrova wore something like this as well for their OG FD, and it made her lines even more beautiful!

    i have the same idea. maybe keep the top part of the dress, but make the bottom sleeker
