Bobrova & Soloviev are regularly being asked about I&K’s split, it is quite funny how much are journalists interested in what they think about a split thing again and again. Not suprisingly both Katya and Dima were surprised (both with questions and split info), they think it is Lena and Nikita’s private thing and they are both concentrated on their practises mainly.
Looking at last Katya’s interview http://www.sovsport.ru/news/text-item/712878 (where she was again asked about I&K’s split), she disclosed a program for next season – it will be Anna Karenina’s story with original soundtrack from movie which had a premier in 2012. So, we already know what is B&S‘s music and I am curious to know what music another couples chose.
With B&S choosing Anna Karenina, here we have another big epic Russian Drama on the ice. Overall music choices of B&S follow past Russian top dancers in typical Russian skating style which was known for great technique, mainly deep edges and a very expressive and dramatic style of dancing…Krylova & Ovsiannikov with Carmen and Masquerade, Navka & Kostomarov with Tosca and Carmen, Domnina & Shabalin with Polovetsian Dances, Masquerade, Spartacus. Always big drama on big scene which was hard to forget. B&S already used Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi, Tosca by Puccini, Carmina Burana, Walpurgis Night by Gounod, historically well known stories like Romeo and Juliet, past two years they came with unusual ideas in their dances keeping in touch with classical music. And now Karenina. So a classical Russian style with sometimes unusual and original ideas. If Zueva speaks about S&K having classical and Russian style, does it mean that she will push them in direction of Bobrova & Soloviev’s style?
I guess he can make as good choreo as the skaters are.
Seriously though. I think Ilia is very talented. I've seen those russian shows and he did some very good choreo there.
I hope he will be as much inspiring with I&Z as he was with Yulia this season.
I don't think Averbukh choreographed Norma. I checked this info in season too because I was very suprised how Averbukh choreographed program like Norma. This is not his style at all. Anyway ISU listed Elena Kustarova, Olga Riabinina as choreographers, not Averbukh.
I like Averbukh's style. I read a interview from him how he never like overly dramatic things, hysterical movements, labored gestures. This is what Elena Ilinykh needs. This is great news for me.
