Romeo & Juliet (Theme from the 1968 film) by Nino Rota has been an occasional choice of music for constructing a program around, and Yuzuru Hanyu has chosen it for his new free program. Here are some snippets from it. Can't wait to see the full version in competition for the first time at the Finlandia Trophy and Skate Canada.
In the meantime, which is your favourite Romeo & Juliet (Nino Rota) program and why? Please provide a video link if possible.
Here are some of my favourites:-
Sasha Cohen - 2005/06 Free Program (2006 U.S. Nationals)
Julia Lipnitskaya - 2011/12 Free Program (2012 Junior World Championships)
Vasilisa Davankova & Andrei Deputat - 2011/12 Long Program (2012 Junior World Championships)
Takahiko Kozuka - 2008/09 Free Program (2009 World Championships)
Ekaterina Pushkash & Jonathan Guerreiro - 2009/10 Free Dance (2009 JGP Dresden)
Takeshi Honda - 2003/04 & 2005/06 Short Program (2003 Skate Canada)
Stéphane Lambiel - 2007/08 Exhibition (2008 World Championships)
My favourite? Sasha Cohen's. If she had skated that program clean and to its full potential at the 2006 Olympics, then there was absolutely no way any of the competition that night would have beaten her. The Olympic gold medal would have been hers. Sadly, it was not clean, and this is how it turned out.
