    oh, the old school Tarasova. The OTT Drama and executed so perfectly. I miss those days.

    Yes never mind the opening the whole dance is fantastic

    It's only one of a few programmes that actually gives me goose bumps especially leading up to the part where Marina lifts Gwendal into that awesome split position lift
    Should have won no doubt about it

    I agree on 100%. I think A/P should be clearly 3 time world champions, it's incredible they have only one title.

    Back to the topic, I think A/P had very spectacular opening choreographies and especially starting positions from 1998 to 2002. Carmina and Liberta ones were very interesting as well

    And Blanc/Bouquet had always great choreography, not only opening

    Jeffrey Buttle's "Aararat" 2008 when he won Worlds. He is so graceful and did a perfect program.

    No love for the masters of the get-your-attention-opening lifts, The Siudeks. One of the few of the many skaters to use music to The Mission effectively. You know you've got the audience when the applause starts before the program even begins.

    Me too! Both flamenco short programs actually! I wish I'd been around to see her in her prime. Must have been so exciting!

    I also love the opening of Katarina's 'Carmen', MK's 'Desdemona', 'Taj Mahal' and Salome!

    Gotta miss the Siudeks and their out-of-this-world lifts. Sorry for going a bit off-topic here, but the lifts in this video are so breathtaking! Just look at the entrances! and the effortless changing of positions. Damn, I wish today's teams would watch some of their performances and learn, the lifts now got far less exciting.

    Is it bad that this is one of my favorite pieces of opening choreography?

    I love the moment when he lifts her up. So light and graceful. Miss them
