All Amodio has mentioned is that he is going to work with Lambiel and Yagudin, on technical sides with the one and on choreography with the other (this is the order he names them and their roles, but it's quite obvious who is the "one" and who is the "other"). We don't know for how long and how much they will work. But it definitely won't hurt to mention them for PR reasons, right?
I don't really believe Morozov will let Stéphane choreograph the whole program. Or, let's say it this way, I don't believe Florent will really skate what Stéphane has choreographed for him. Because even with Takahashi, the only one who came with "other" choreographies, in the end Morozov left his distinctive mark.
What can be Lambiel's role? I don't think that working on spins can be called "work on the choreography" Amodio has mentioned, but it might be that Stéphane will help him with those too. I think, more or less it will be similar to what happened to Ten's programs this season and to the programs of Mishin's students last season when Stéphane worked in Mishin's summer camp. Stéphane calls it "adding his fragrance". And, yes, you can call it "showing how to skate to someone's choreo" (this is exactly what he did with Lori's choreo for Denis Ten). And, yes, Stéphane is really nice indeed. This will be the best case scenario, when all the sides know exactly that only "fragrance" will be used.
The worst case will be that Stéphane will indeed work on the choreography of the whole program, but then it will be ripped off anything interesting by Morozov, some typical pseudo-sexy Amodio's movements will be added back, the program will have nothing to do with him but Stéphane's name will be used in every occasion for PR. This is exactly what happened to Tuktamysheva's program. And I have a feeling something rather similar can happen again.

Yagudin helped Amodio with the jumps just a couple of times in the past and I have my doubts he and Amodio will be working together other than sporadically but if they think that adding to the Résumé some big names of figure skating will impress the judges and will result in higher GOEs on the jumps and better transitions/choreography marks and if the big names don't mind being used for strictly PR purposes, let them go for it.All Amodio has mentioned is that he is going to work with Lambiel and Yagudin, on technical sides with the one and on choreography with the other (this is the order he names them and their roles, but it's quite obvious who is the "one" and who is the "other").

I wouldn't underestimate the effect of sexy moves on female audiences.The worst case will be that Stéphane will indeed work on the choreography of the whole program, but then it will be ripped off anything interesting by Morozov, some typical pseudo-sexy Amodio's movements will be added back, the program will have nothing to do with him but Stéphane's name will be used in every occasion for PR.
Oh, I don't underestimate the effect. I just don't want to see them in the program "labelled" as "choreographed by Stéphane Lambiel".I wouldn't underestimate the effect of sexy moves on female audiences.
Wow! This would be great. I went to Nice back in 2006 and I have really good memories of that trip. I tried a couple of times after that but couldn't make the dates work. A little SSG trip (and maybe an AoI one) could cheer me up if I don't make it to Worlds next year.

The journalist says: A casual meeting and an another point of view of figure skating. Few days ago all the champions gather in Bercy, one year before the Game of Sochi the mood is great
The lady voice says: Far from the spotlights, privileged meeting with the skaters of team France.
Then Nathalie and Florent noticed Brian outfit
Brian : No violence it's holidays (just for the rhyme it doesn't mean anything)
Nathalie: We kisses again because there is the camera
Brian laughs and says: yes exactly. Well when does it begin?
lady voice: Paris Bercy a meeting for happy few, little show on the ice and good atmosphere
The skater on the zamboni says it's not me, someone obliged me.
Nathalie: you see we are a bit kaput soo..
Florent: it's the end of the season
Nathalie: Fabian is recovering, we make the new programs, it takes a lot of time but it's less intense. We are preparing for Sochi
Voice: End of season of everybody and presentation, for some of them, of the after-Sochi show. A reason to be together after a stormy season. Brian Joubert, ninth of the last WC just come back from Tokyo after the GPF, already set in Olympic mood, his last Game.
Brian: I need to enjoy every days in practice and every competition, but I have no doubts, I feel that next season will be good.
Voice: Moments to skate with the audience and to not forget the misunderstandings of last year. The back injury of Florent Amodio, 12th in the WC and Fabian's injury who deprive our dancer of the world podium.
Nathalie: The lesson is...
Florent: Roll on next year
Nathalie: Exactly, we will give everything next year, everything that we cannot give this time, it's for next year. Nothing is lost, everything transforms (quote from Lavoisier. don't know the English translation)
Fabian, pointing Daria and one of the mens: this two are great together.
Voice: So that's a beautiful France' Team happy and united with a big potential for next year, for sure.
Nathalie: It's not a team, it's some friends who share the same passion. So it's more than a team. We love each other that's all, no no I'm too old to say :"on se kiffe" so we love each other very much
My translation skill is very poor, so excuse me if I made some mistakes
Interview with Florent Amodio (Russian):
To our discussion above:
Will it be your first time working with Lambiel?
Yes, he will come to France for five days, and we will try to work productively. He promised to share with me his ideas, to give some advices about musical pieces, to help on the ice. Stéphane is a good friend of mine, and I'm glad I have this opportunity to work with him. I asked him: will you help me to prepare for the Olympic season? And Lambiel agreed! But he has a very busy schedule, and it was hard to find the date when we both are free. I think, he will come to France around May 5-10. But my programs will be created by Nikolai, and Stéphane will simply help with the ideas. It's always very interesting for me to involve new people, it allows you to see everything from the different point of view.
As was to be expected.But my programs will be created by Nikolai, and Stéphane will simply help with the ideas.
Short update with Nathalie and Fabian:
Florent and Stéphane:
I have a slightest hope that in these five days they will work fast enough so that not only "ideas" but the whole program will be ready. And then Morozov will be too busy with other programs for other students and won't have time to change it. Am I too naive and optimistic?
P/B new programme theatrical lot's of emotions colourful nice lines speed and the most beautiful story in the world !
Sounds intriguing.Nathalie/Fabian what teases
Any ideas anyone ?
Thank's reut for the link !
The magazine Doppio Axel posted on its facebook page that their Free Dance was on the music of The Little Prince, but they stated that it was just a rumour so I don't know whether it's true or not.
A grumpy Canadian will always be nicer than a polite Milanese
Little Prince, which, btw, was published 70 years ago this year
