    I saw this commercial the other day and thought it was a hilarious use of one of skating's warhorses, "Nessun Dorma."

    Anyone else seen a creative use of, say, Phantom of the Opera, Sheherezade, Rach 2, etc?

    OMG, this program is AWESOME. The only change I would make would be to find a slightly more techno version of Tosca -- then the music cuts would've totally screamed 1980s.

    I wonder if this skater was influenced by Tonya Harding circa 1991/1992...

    I may be an idiot, but what is the difference between "Nessun Dorma" and "Turnadot"? They sound the same to me....

    "Nessun Dorma" is one piece from Turandot, which is an opera by Puccini.

    Fantastic, funny program. I really like this guy.

    Swan Lake arm flapping sends me over the edge every time. I just crack up.. The Rocky step sequence, excellent. This must kill in competition.

    Once saw a male ballet dancer do a ten minute Carmen, playing all three lead roles. It was hilarious.
