    Good point. Best to suit the skaters style. With all the music to choose from, that's a major feat in and of itself. But I do believe it'll be choreographed to tell a story too. At least it'll help with the interp. imo

    I just hope that Evan doesn't wear harem pants and a turban in an attempt to channel Nijinsky as the immortal Golden Slave...

    No worries - I'm quite sure he and Vera Wang will come up with something much more subtle and classic than that.

    If i were a heluva lot younger and still skating, I would take the music cuts out of Arabia which the Russians love, and put it in a South Sea Island in the Pacific. It would be about warring tribes, a beautiful polynesian lady, and a handsome dude from Boston involved in a miscegination love duet. The climax, of course would be the Typhoon devastating the island and killing all but the loving couple. Original? hmph!

    It's high on my list to watch Evan as the first male skater to use Scher in a major competition.

    To an earlier post about skaters working their careers and choosing music "that works" (which I could quote...but that'd take so long, haha) it's completely understandable...but I wish that more skaters would take huge risks, especially at olympics. It'd really cement them as historical, if that makes sense. I know some have chosen unique music, and i hope they all turn out wonderful. I would love to see a field of "Amelie" "Requiem" and maybe a "Nina Rota", and then some really modern choices, like "Titan Spirit" from Remember the Titans, or even "Bumblebee" from Transformers. Some of Transformers' pieces have been amazing, and would love to see a program from it.

    ETA: And, as corny as it could be, and it'd need some remixing, from ES Posthumos has some decent things...especially "Nara". That could be beautiful.

    It's someone who can't spell very well.

    I can see how there would be a lot of music recycling. I just think that champion skaters should WANT to set themselves apart. You can do that with "recycled" music but only if it is a unique interpretation. I wonder if some skaters need to take more interest in their music and put more work into finding/creating a musical cut which makes a new statement. Or perhaps the music is almost seen as being superfluous nowadays...

    I'm not against the use of a story, if the skater continues with the essence throughout the program. Joannie's Firebird did just that! But if for 10 seconds of music at the beginning and 8 seconds at the end of the program, why bother?

    If you check out Lambiel's programs, he used the character of the Flamenco and now the character of the Tango and it was throughout the programs. What else do you need?

    You mean something sleeveless, low cut, with a cute little skirt? Let's just hope that his ta-ta's don't pop out the front ala Kwan...

    Nope - not what I had in mind at all. Not them either, I'll bet.

    Here is John Curry's Scheherazade at the 1980 or 1981(?) World Pro.

    Nubka - I'm surprised at you to stoop so low Do you do that with all the skaters you hate? does the laugh emoticon soften the b***chy remark?
