    I'm not that interested in Davis/White's choice too, tbh! if they present a good, artistic program, it will be good for ice dance, I guess.

    I don't really see how it could be similar to Farrucas, except - partially - in its dynamism and fierceness. The music in "Carmen" has many layers to it and the characters are complex. No doubt, there will be changes of rhythm and of mood. Plus, we don't know which pieces they've chosen, therefore it's useless to speculate.
    Well, it's not "more than that" but kind of "it could be anything else".
    I read those comments, an anonymous wrote: "oh, if only Carmen could be very similar to Farrucas!" and the blogger answered: "there was someone who was talking about Farrucas's movements watching Carmen in Canton, but it could be easly anything else".
    This is the correct meaning/translation.
    It's not an "inside information", it's just what the blogger reported from what was said on the internet.

    It's possible to put up video of things on youtube without them being taken down. I watch a tv series from another country that is always deleted by youtube when its real name is used, but when put up under another name, there is no problem. You just have to know the name and make sure it's not similar to what you really are looking for.

    Thanks for clarifying. Myself, I'm not a native speaker, so I didn't catch the nuance.

    i think the bar is set a little too high, i mean expectation-wise.people have to remember that they're not dancing in a theater or doing an originality contest. its not given that they can satisfy what we fans want to see, nor that its what they actually have in mind.think at the level of pressure the whole team must be under, creating something that has to score 10's in PCS. Verrucas was a program that broke record scores, it would be natural to get back to it. there are teams that can afford to think outside the box, like the one from Azerbajan.. but in order to stand at the very top of the game in an extremely competitive field, you have to be extra careful of IJS rules. so let's not feel disappointed if the fd doesnt turn being the ground-breaking work of art that we fans desire!

    tessa and scott have long had the ability to satisfy technical requirements, but instead of their skate looking like a technical exercise, it becomes a thing of beauty. you forget they're competing and are simply swept away.

    Or the person could make the video private so it doesn't come up in the search and you can only see it if you have the direct link, which they could post here.

    i have no doubt we'll get something from Finlandia. And practice videos are important. That's the only way we get video of Tessa in the all black Audrey outfit last year.

    Maybe its all stressfull for Tessa and Scott too - only two programs they will perform
    I like Farrucus, but still hope this will something different.

    Also I kinda agree with Pani how come this secret source that was in Canton only noticed and took notes of only T/S's program and not of the other teams?
    I will tell them. Dont worry - they will made all, what they can to do

    Yes - thats my question, why not about other teams? At first i thought because T-S had practice in Canada during CNE, but in this blog people talking about Canton and "Carmen" rumors at Aunt Joyes fromspring was found early, then T-S start doing CNE.
    Look like W-P had great feedback. Interesting what about V-M? I remeber wyat a buzz was when they made PF and latin FD

    Now, that's interesting . It is a timeless storyline as they say. I can hardly wait to see it, and can see something like that growing and progressing as the season goes on.

    A modern Carmen sounds great! I've been hoping that V/M would highlight the dancing ability that sets them apart from most teams.

    wow, they say exactly what i've been preaching in the last months attention to the language of the body and to modern ways of expression. now if it's indeed inspired from modern ballet, we'll have everything many of us were asking for

    I wouldn't have minded a traditional approach of Carmen from Tessa and Scott because I know they would have made something special of it with their talent and all but a modern Carmen is even better as they would be going in somewhat a different direction from Farrucas I suspect. So excited to hear the news.

    About SD:

    Olympic champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir in a mesmerizing display of expression to beautiful classical sounding music for their short dance. What was that music? It turns out it was a waltz composed by actor Anthony Hopkins and orchestrated by Andre Rieu. It's rich, complex and a worthy complement to Virtue and Moir's genius.
