    After her withdrawal from Italian Nationals due to backpain we finally get to see some news from Carolina ... she skated at New Year's Gala in Oberstdorf! I am just happy to see her on the ice again and wish her all the best for Europeans! She skated 2 exhibitions, one to Ave Maria and one to Sheherazade:

    Shez: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cIoOnHw31g

    Ja, Shez seems to be still on. Hope she'll use Ave Maria as her Gala program, least for Sochi: could you "Imagine" Caro n Yuna skating the same song?
    In Selva (video disappeared) she skated Imagine wearing the Humoresque outfit.

    AND... she never stopped skating, Jig: Rome, Selva Val Gardena, Merano, Oberst, ... simply, she is focusing on Sochi. Partly I am glad she was not in Merano, because this allowed Vale Marchei to win her 5th title. And Roberta Rodeghiero to reach the bronze.

    Mmmm as far as I know she didn't skate in Rome... She skated in Selva on the 27th after taking some break to heal and rest...
    She was in Rome just to attend Italian Olympic Committee celebrations for the upcoming Olympics.

    She never stopped training and skating. And obviously she paid a visit to "her" ice rink, Axel.

    I said it and Alto Adige did not disappoint.

    Pic with the most important person in her life: Ms. Mancini.

    I am a bit confused: according to the interview (Dec 30 Morning), she did not know whether to propose Shez or not; but in the evening she skated it.

    Her Ave Maria program is so stunning, I hope she skates it in Sochi. The dress in particular looks amazing on her and helps contribute to her seeming like she is floating

    Oh no I meant in the gala (assuming she gets to skate in it)! Though it wouldn't make a bad competition program either.

    Thank heavens for Carolina! She gives such grand life and emotion to everything she skates. There is a beauty and sophistication with her that I don't see with the other ladies, save Akiko Suzuki. They both connect so well with their music choices, as if the performance comes from their souls. I think I would be overcome with tears of joy if both Kostner and Suzuki managed to skate personal bests in Sochi. It would surely be my dream for the ladies division, along with a podium of Kostner, Suzuki, and Wagner.

    The Ave Maria program looked to me like a short program. She started straight away and went to 3T ( eventual 3t+3t ), the it looked like she was going around for 3lo but then did a spiral instead. I wouldnt be surprised if she has changed her sp to this ave maria.

    Scheherazade is clearly staying. Saw some different choreography that i would like to see in the program

    She has her mojo back! Major love on both performances.

    And now if she would just land those jumps...

    I've been wondering Opera On Ice affected her Grand Prix Series since it was too close to the Grand Prix events. Why do they hold this show in autumn every year? Since this is the show skaters need lots of hours to prepare for, they should schedule it much earlier.

    That was stunning! I have never seen her skate like that. I am just astounded.
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    It can't be in August, because then it would clash with 'All That Skate Summer' (not this season, since the only 'All That Skate' show was at the end of June), then at the beginning of September there is usually the second edition of 'Fantasy on Ice' in Japan - of course, most of the skaters who skate in 'Opera on Ice' don't skate in those shows, but Lambiel (who is the second star of 'Opera on Ice' besides Carolina) does, also Shizuka Arakawa (she usually skates in 'Fantasy on Ice'). But perhaps that's not even the main reason, a more significant reason may be that there are other events at the arena of Verona that can't be scheduled in a different time. And there may be more reasons.

    Skaters do pre-season and in-season shows all the time, and Carolina used to compete at Nebelhorn in the past, which of course is right before the GP. I doubt Opera on Ice would have affected her preparation, she's a veteran competitor and knows what she's doing.

    Her manager, the most important person of her life, thought this show for her. The show is September and she begins to promote it in February, with usual monthly mentions. I'll tell you more: she attended galas in Sleva, Bozen and Oberstdorf. Well, he already signed the autographs for the fourth opera on ice.
    Also, there are shows in this period, too; with skaters busy in Nationals and Europeans and similar.
