One of my favorites is the opening of Sasha's "Malaguena."

Old, lonely, pathos-hungry, and extremely gullible
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.
"The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play." –Olympic Charter
G/P, the opening to "Time To Say Goodbye" exhibition.
Todd Eldredge - first 10 seconds of "Gettysburg" - exquisite.
