    What are your three most favorite performances of music from Phantom of the Opera? It can be any music from this musical (although Music of the Night is the most used one).

    Just curious, is there any reason you picked Patrick Chan's 2010 Olympic version instead of 2011 Canadian or World?

    This is the one I found easily. I was pretty tired by that time and did not spend more time looking for more.

    Drobiazko & Vanagas FD of 2006 season.
    Their Euros performance was better than Olys IMO.

    My 2 favorites were Dorothy Hamill's & Watson & Oppegard's exhibition, forget what year but think it was when they first turned pro.

    I voted for Drobiazko & Vanagas, Davis & White, and Chan. Some of the others, I can't remember, or they didn't at all move me. Chan's wouldn't be on my list of favourite programs ever, but it was good.

    Even though it's widely criticized, I really enjoy Patrick Chan's POTO program and still watch it occasionally. It was well-constructed, and I liked his interpretation.

    If we include juniors, I voted other for Chock/Zuerlain -they just seemed to come out of nowhere for me - I think this is the first time I saw them - and I really loved that FD - couldnt believe they came from S/Z. Then sadly, they seemed to completely change as seniors and just kind of faded.

    If it's just seniors - Drobiazko/Vanagas - I love the way the really felt the music!

    If we include juniors, Sinitsina-Zhiganshin are skating to this music this year.

    I often think of Music of the Night as Brian Boitano's signature piece. I still remember his exhibition/pro skating to this, with those gorgeous spread eagles that went so well with this music.
