Another fluff- off season thread, for what it's worth.
The other day I was watching B&S's Umbrellas of Cherbourg performance from the 2000 GPF. I think it was the only time they performed it, and their lack of familiarity with this music showed. With more practice it could have been a pretty good program but for some reason they never skated it again. That made me think of other skaters that had a few performances that were skated just once or twice, or were simply not well known.
Michelle Kwan's Miraculous Mandarin, though a good program, was not used much after the GPF performance (2001). Not sure why. I believe she had one SP choreo'ed by Chris Dean that was abandoned.
Yagudin skated to music from Broken Arrow all season, but replaced it with Lawrence of Arabia at worlds, so the BA program sort of went into oblivion because LOA won him another world championship.
G&G's Scheherzadeh was not a well known (pro) program at all, I have it on a tape, but it was not easy to find it.
