    Julia Vlassov & Drew Meekings (USA) – a version of the “Titanic” score (FS)


    According to some eyewitnesses and Pang & Tong's blog, they are currently working with Morozov to do two new programs. They will likely finish the choregraphy by the end of this month. The long program will use 'Romeo and Juliet'(Nino Rota version), this music has been overused, but hell, every music has been repeated thousands of times these day. Pang & Tong will try something new in short program, possibly blues style music with some sexy flavour.

    Musically, it should be interesting. I didn't notice any Carmens, only one Swan Lake, one Coppelia and one Sheherezade. We may be seeing the doom of the war horses.

    Maybe they want to beat sasha cohen for using the most pieces of overused music in skating history.

    From your mouth to G-d's ears! Seriously, it is early days, so the war horses may still appear (in droves)

    According to his website (http://www.jeffreybuttle.com/) he is keeping last year's LP to the Ararat soundtrack. He has a new short program to music from the opera "I Pagliacci"

    !!! I can't imagine it! This is the world's most made-fun-of operatic work. (Does anyone remember "No more Rice Krispies!")

    Yep. I remember it!

    Langlois and Hay's short music sounds familiar to me. Who used this before?

    Love V/M, but very disappointed with their music selections. Both Dark Eyes and Umbrellas are tired.
