In fact, I believe it can beat Chan's Elegy if done well.

    This is incredibly fast, and hard music to pick up nuances. I can picture Takahashi or Kozuka being able to handle it, but it sounds a little too rushed and dissonant/dark/creeopy for my liking.

    Interested to see how this will look. Her first competition of the Olympic season will be at Skate Milwaukee in July.

    Very interested to see this.

    I think Jeremy Abbott is working with Robin Cousins for one of his programmes:

    Yes, I think if you look back in this thread (or elsewhere on GS), it was noted some weeks ago that Abbott had gone on the record that he would be working with Cousins.
    And in recent days, Abbott also has tweeted about their progress together on choreo; DSC tweeted about having Cousins in the house; etc.

    Love the great photo in the tweet from Cousins -- thank you for the link.

    I went back to find the previous reference re Cousins and Abbott. So it is the SP that they have been choreographing this past week.
    The post above (#87) is from Apr 14.
    I have never clicked on the YouTube link, but I now seem to recall reading somewhere else that at WTT, Abbott met with his Japanese fan club and announced his programs as above.

    ETA:

    BTW, Abbott's mother sent a tweet a while ago (must have been at the beginning of the week) that basically said (I'm paraphrasing) that she was headed to Detroit to witness Abbott's last experience of working on choreo. Her wording was a lot more artful that mine, thank goodness. Anyway, she clearly was indicating that Abbott will retire after the coming season.

    That timetable does not seem surprising, but has Abbott himself also spoken openly of his planned retirement?

    Well she does Latin music well, so it should work for her in the Olympic year. As long as she doesn't mess up 3 elements in her SP again...

    Max Aaron FS: Carmen (per IN, May 21)

    Max Aaron FS: Carmen (per IN, May 21)

    Excerpt from http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news :

    For the long program, I really have to get my strength up. It is a four-minute, 45-second, leg-burning program. I am definitely excited to show how I can move differently. Lori [Nichol] found a contemporary arrangement of Carmen. It varies between a classic and modern take on Carmen. I feel it keeps people wondering what the music is until the very end, when you realize the music is Carmen.

    When I came to Lori with the idea of Carmen, she wanted to make sure that we did an original spin on Carmen. Lori's choreography is truly amazing, and I love how she found a modernistic movement. I definitely wanted something known but not too overplayed. I know it's going to make me grow as a skater.

    That's interesting for Max -- his skating is a more contemporary style so it'll be interesting to see his interpretation of new age Carmen (even if it is god-awfully overdone). And Nichols' choreo will certainly push him... he needs to break from being just a jumper.

    Her skating is rather serious and I think Latin music will actually serve her well, if it's something like a Tango. I cannot picture her doing upbeat, fun Latin music like Osmond's Mambo No.8.

    Another interview with Tuk

    http://fsrussia.ru/news/596_elizavet...im-programmam/
    "
    -- Успели поработать над новыми программами до гастролей?

    -- Работали над короткой программой. Почти сделали ее. Ставил программу новый хореограф, танцор из Кировского театра по имени Антон, которого порекомендовал Юрий Смекалов. Мне очень понравилось наше сотрудничество, потому что новый постановщик подсказал какие-то неожиданные вещи, изюминки, добавил свежести программам. Я даже не предполагала, что руки можно так красиво завернуть и подстроить под шаги. Мне кажется, здорово получилось."

    with google translator:

    -Had time to work on new programs to the tour?

    - We worked on the short program. Almost made ​​it. Put the program a new choreographer, dancer of the Kirov Ballet named Anton, who has recommended Yuri Smekalov. I loved our cooperation, because a new director prompted some unexpected things, raisins, added freshness programs. I do not imagine that the hands can be so beautifully wrapped and tailored to the steps. I think it turned out great.

    ??????????

    Christopher Caluza on the upcoming season in an IN interview:

    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    "Icenetwork.com: What are your plans for the next season?

    Caluza: I'm still picking my long, but I'm skating to "Jumpin' Jack" (by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy) for my short. My free skate will be another concerto. I'm still planning which competitions I'm going to be sent to. I've been working on my triple Axel and quad loop, so I hope to make this season my best one yet.

    This may be my only chance for the Olympics, as I still don't know what I will be doing the next four years from now. This season will be difficult, but I love what I do."

    Well, this can be good, if it is REALLY a modern carmen and if there is some real choreography, but I feel that someone like Lori is exactly what Max needs... I hope there will be more than crossovers and hands movements during the first 1:30...

    Please, please, please, not something like 2011-2012 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qn9vRqJmgac), that was incredibly awful choreography!
