    Argh, first thought came to mind for me was: "why now?"
    Swan Lake should be for Sochi, not now. Maybe SP for Sochi?
    But I think she would be the SWAN if she got her jumps.

    Thank you for mentioning Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings!!! Ever since this was used by Katia at Sergei's Tribute (Celebration of a Life) I have wanted to see this used!! Here is a clip from the program: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kO1Jmm6x2wM[/url]

    When I became a ballet fan and saw Balanchine's Serenade, I was blown away. When the curtain rises and you see the women all lined up with their right arms raised, it is an incredible sight. [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4ra_L_wPo0[/url],

    Well Shizu used a modern version for her SP in both the 03 and 04 season to some affect too - absolute joy to watch!

    Yeah - Bondage Swan
    But I don't think Mao will do that.

    It's expected that an Olympic season has new programs.

    not always. Sale and Pelletier's Love Storywas a program from a previous year and I believe Evan Lysacek reused Carmen in 2006 from the 2005 season. If Swan Lake works for her, and I expect it will, I don't see the harm in using it again.

    no Carmen was debuted at 2006 nationals... he reused it the following season. his original FP was to the music from Grease.

    There are times when using the same program as the previous year is almost by popular demand. In 1992, was it? Mishkutenok and Dmitriev skated their Liebestraum from the year before. It was a masterpiece, one of Tamara Moskvina's best creations ever, and I think people would have been disappointed with a new program for the Olympic year. I seem to recall that in 2002, Sale/Pelletier actually started the season with another long program and then went back to Love Story. I know I wasn't the only one who greeted that decision with delight.

    So if Mao comes up with a gorgeous Swan Lake this season and wants to use it again, I'll be in the cheering section (with many other people, I'm sure). In fact, I'd love to start a petition for Davis and White to revive Die Fledermaus for next season. They can do whatever they like for this season, but Fledermaus for '14!

    Perfect choice for Mao. I'm excited to see this program unveiled.

    S&P were *almost* punished for recycling Love Story (initially, they were with a Silver medal). Orchid had not been well received that season. Lysacek's situation was similar in that the program was not well received and he hadn't skated Carmen that long.

    As I said it is "expected" that a top contender would have a new program, not that it "always" happens.

    I love this choice...Wagner and Mao, battling swans at Sochi. Revived programs are a great way to do the Olympics now.
