    I love K&P's number, very creative concept and a demanding program.

    The suite was not composed as a ballet score, but Le Cygne is the music of a later ballet, The Dying Swan.

    Thanks for the info. I too thought The Swan was not ballet music. I did not know the Dying Swan ballet used that music.

    Oksana Baiul's ex to this music in 1994 was beautiful.

    I liked Bechke & Petrov's Spartacus more than K&P's (surprise!) K&P's program was interesting, but I thought the prop (chains) was too overwhelming.

    Especially beautiful because, I believe that for many years; the only place that they were "allowed to"/comfortable with expressing their feelings for each other, was "on ice"

    Here is Davis and White's Giselle. Starts with a march, then a waltz and finally a polka. Really good stuff!

    That was lovely. I am afraid she won't score high under the IJS.

    Tim Goebel was not balletic by any stretch of the imagination, but I liked his SP to Prokofiev's Romeo & Juliet. He captured the power of that music very well.

    They truly are the most balletic ice dancers and I am not trying to twist the topic but how about Summertime ( there is a ballet version of "Porgy and Bess" besides the opera and the musical)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mdij7eJeEzY

    It is mostly jazzlike and is not as balletic as the next two programs

    I had never seen that program (Summertime) of Usova-Zhulin. They were gorgeous. I did not feel this was ballet music though; may be modern dance? Everything they did was balletic, graceful, beautiful.

    I thought is was an opera and then realised I was confusing this with another one. However, after googling it seems 'Prince Igor' is also an opera:

    I liked Klimova & Ponomarenko's exhibition performance to Swan Lake.

    Ilia has done several programs using music from the Nutcracker but this is far and away the best - I think one of his best pro programs period. 2003 Ice Wars. Just marvelous! For five years out from his OGM, extra marvelous.

    Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-hQp1zd00Y

    I love D&W's Giselle - really great on their part and brilliant by Zueva.
