My favorite Scheherazade--in fact, the only one I like--is Mao's short program in 2011. Now that was a different take on the old warhorse. I also liked her harem pants.
Well, I didn't remember that I predicted Caro's FS music, thank you yyyskate! Now I WANT to see Yu-Na skating to Swan Lake! ( to me!! )
I think Im going to be sick with so many Les Miserables programs this season
its Yuna's fault
Some more videos from Glacier Falls Summer Classic:
Michael Christian Martinez LP (mash up of "Malaguena" and some other Latin music?):
Richard Dornbush "Beatles Medley" LP:
Courtney Hicks "Evita" LP:
Vincent Zhou LP (Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite "Marche" & "Pas de Deux"):
Mirai Nagasu "Bond Medley" LP:
I think it's unfortunate that her less-than-ideal jumps get so much attention when just about everything else which she does so wonderfully gets pretty much overlooked. I love her musicality, her self-aware movement and carriage, and her butter-like blades that do the steps and turns so effortlessly that they seem like they can go on forever.
ETA watched Satoko's LP again and I'm already ready to proclaim it one of my favourite programs of the year The girl is just brilliant. Which 15-year-olds move like this?! Who is the choreographer, again?
The IN article mentioned that Davis and White aren't going to reveal their music until after Champs Camp. Why does the beginning of this thread say they're skating to Schehrezade for their FD? I'm assuming it's based on rumors?
It was reported in Doppio Axel, the well known Italian figure skating site. It may not be true. One can never make assumptions about US skaters until after Champs camp, because sometimes the federation will shoot down a program. Consequently, D&W did not do a waltz SD to Amelie in 2010-2011, doing waltzes from La Traviata and La Boheme instead, and did not do an FD to Nino Rota's La Strada, doing Die Fledermaus instead, in 2011-2012.
Because Doppio Axel is a generally reliable source, we left Scheherazade listed, but we won't really know until after Champs Camp in any case.
BTW, Vincent Zhou's IN bio was updated, and his SP is to the Barber of Seville. His choreographer is Justin Dillon.

I didn't expect that at all after the last 2-3 seasons. I thought she'd come up with something special and unique.
Very, very disappointing.

People seem very concerned about the free program. Let me just say this: I have seen it with my own eyes and it blew me away!
Lori and Caro know exactly what they are doing and they have come up with great stuff for this season. Just wait and see :-)
