    Wow that thread went by fast! Were gonna reach thirty pages before the season starts.
    I was thinking that maybe Tessa is never at these events because she never has time due to her injury? Managing an injury is very time consuming....

    Tessa spend a lot off time in school. Plus this Friday they were in Canada. Maybe she just not a friend of this couple.
    Are you sure she wasnt at this wedding just because we didnt see her on this photos?

    Thank you. I was stuck in lab so I couldn't start the thread. And like I said before Tessa not being in group pics is something I've noticed recently. Probably not a biggie as I don't like being in photos too.

    Yeah, my guess is she wasn't there. Tessa doesn't seem as close to the Americans as Scott is and that's okay. She probably was on vacation with her friends or school.

    I'm thinking more and more about the new programs. Time is going by so fast, it's practically July! I can't wait to find out what they're doing next.

    Finding out what they're doing next is almost equal to finding out what they're doing last, and I'm not quite willing to go there yet.

    That said, I maintain a Swann-choreographed Black/Swan Lake would be the apotheosis of the last four years and go into the annals as one of the all time great programs from one of the all time great ice dancers.

    No Black Swan please its almost as overused as Carmen. And Tessa and Scott are not the type of team to skate to two overused piece of music in a row. They like to shake things up abit. Personally I would like them to do something like Mahler but abit more dramatic/emotional. However, I have a funny feeling they are going to skate to a Rachmaninoff symphony (something familiar but not as overused) or they are going for something more obscure like Die Tote Stadt. Part of me does not want them to use a russian composer because everyone is going to do that (expect alot of Romeo and Juliet, Swan Lake, Scheherazade etc.) and I don't want the same thing to happen like what happened with Carmen this year.

    I know, I know - it's overused. But think about how it combines what they've done these four seasons - the focus on character and portraiture, the shift towards modernity while still rooting things in a place, the expansion of dramatic flair. A great Swan Lake program would incorporate that. So would a lot of other things, admittedly. But to do all that while rooting it back to ballet and classic elegance?

    From the previous thread:

I wouldn't mind browsing photos occasionally of the banquets and things if I don't have to create tons of new accounts.
    The V/M FB group and the Russian VK group have photos. I think you have to make an account though.

    IK will use Swan Lake. From one hand I think for VM this will be great.choice and yes, something dark and dramatic. But yes, this music was so overused.
    I wish to know, what was there first.choice and why they changed there minds.
    And yes, its sad to think about there last competitive programs.

    There was a first choice and then they changed it? Interesting.

    In last interview Scott said this time they dodnt fall in love with first music they heard, like this was with Mahler. So its inetersting for me what music they didnt choose and why.

    Thanks, icefan1005.

    pani, do you know for a fact I&K are skating to Swan Lake?

    I agree with Proustable. Swan Lake is considered by popular media to be *the* ballet of Russian ballets, and I so want V&M to put their stamp on it as their signature program. It is a risk because lots of skaters will be using Swan Lake and other Tchaivoksky pieces, but as I said about Carmen, it is so sweet when someone rises to the challenge of making such a warhorse their own. The music from the final act of Swan Lake is one of the most moving pieces ever, for me, and I've always wanted to see a good freedance to it - who better than V&M to bring that to life? And with Swan by their side?

    I wouldn't mind seeing a more offbeat or voidy interpretation; perhaps with Scott as Rothbart instead of Siegfreid... it's unfortunate that the Black Swan movie has already made those types of interpretations cliched, such as Volosozhar & Trankov's LP (it was good, but not befitting of their talents nor as good as I'd expect from a great Russian pair).

    I don't know. If IK are doing swan lake I wouldn't take the risk. Carmen was awfully underscored this season and I'm pretty sure Igor politicking for his own team had something to do with it.

    Hey everyone - sorry I've been a little MIA from here since the end of the season (I think I just needed a break after the heartbreak of London and summers are usually busy for me), but love the new thread and can't wait to see what their music choices will be! I agree, I don't think they'll use another "overused" piece of music.
