    Why do you keep saying that her manager is the most important person in her life?

    Thoughts on Scheherazade:
    *I burst! I'm sekretly very pleased that she's kept this program, scandalous costume and all. (And for the record I loved and appreciated the authenticity of the first one too, so sue me)
    *Whoever suggested Scheherazde as a short program is a nimwit, you cannot capture the rapture and orgasm of Scheherezade in a mere 2 and a half minutes. You need at least four.

    POnderings on Ave Maria.,,.,.,.,...
    *First of all, I'd be pleased with a change. "Humoresque" is daring and a tad eccentric for an Olympic program and I do not particularly enjoy the lillsy orchestral version (is has a flattening effect on the composition and I find myself wanting the playfully neurotic piano original).
    Had I choreographed the thing, I would have had her pulling a live butterfly from under her dress and presenting it to the audience as a symbol of peace. Hey if Yagudin can throw clumps of ice in the air then this could work too.

    * With this music I still think of Fumie's sweet moment from 2002 Salt Lake, but skating to this in Sochi can be an iconic "watch on repeat" performance from the competition. Oh and one last thing...does the Nobel Prize committee give an award for skating mastery?

    If you liked Ave Maria, you will probably also like this exhibition to "Va Pensiero" she did at Opera on Ice this year: http://youtu.be/IC5H271tC8Y?t=1m23s

    I think this is hands down the best I have seen her skate, I love the grandness of her movements and the soft, flowy skating. I see the same thing in Ave Maria. Hopfefully she will keep it as an exhibition. And I absolutely adore the dress.

    Opera On Ice cannot be scheduled earlier because the Opera season ends in September.

    I would be so happy to see Caro win an Olympic medal.

    Thank you pingu! It should be the right answer! It can't be helped.
    I really really want Caro to be on the podium in Sochi. So I asked the the same question inside of me again and again.
    This show is very gorgeous so I'm a fan of this show itself. But it is kinda musical show so skaters have to practice the special programs for it. Nebel is fine since they skate their competitive programs. Also skaters do their own exhibition programs in other shows, i.e. "Imagine" for Caro, so they just skate what they've already practiced.
    Caro is a big star in her country, so I assume she feels responsibility for many things such as this show. Now I won't look back and just root for her. Thankx.

    Caro skated to Opera on Ice three times now. And these were the best seasons of her carrier. The problem this year is her back pain, witch took away a lot of practice time. I only hope she get healthy soon, than she will skate great.

    Here are HD versions of her exhibitions in Oberstdorf:
    Ave Maria: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PynjMtrwc_I
    Shez: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsCM3URzmiQ

    If I am not mistaken, Icegala Bolzano will be aired tomorrow on TV, hopefully there will be videos of that online soon. I saw it live, she skated to Ave Maria and Shez there too and she was amazing!

    Her Ave Maria is wonderful. A few dance movements make me sigh in admiration. If only her jumps had been more consistent. She still is my favorite Italian. It would be very nice to see her making the podium in Sochi. More importantly, though, I really hope she leaves a great performance or two in this season. Good luck at the Euros.

    That was so touching. I'm French, so I understood part of it by association, but it was wonderful. So many people are still so hard on Carolina...how quickly they have forgotten the hurdles she has leaped over, going from two disastrous Olympics to World Champion two years later. Muah. Best of luck on the rest of the season.

    Am getting soft in my old age. This and Akiko's Nationals win both made me sniffle. Looking forward to seeing Carolina in Budapest

    Not sure if it's been mentioned somewhere already, but take a look at her ISU bio as of today:

    Music Short Program / Short Dance as of season 2013/2014
    Ave Maria by Franz Schubert
    Music Free Skating / Free Dance as of season 2013/2014
    Bolero by Maurice Ravel

    I'd have preferred Mozart, but still - good news!
