From Ice show at the end of August
Friends on Ice
“Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.”
Duet with Shizuka Arakawa
I’m a big fan of Stephane. To see his performance always gives me happiness.. Stephane keeps brushing up on his skills after retirement also and is getting matured every year...
This is just a light program for the show, but their elegance, adult atmosphere, refined skating, etc… Just beautiful. it’s the first time they’ve done together?

I think they were the only couple on the show without pairs or ice dance experience, but they have such great chemistry you hardly notice. Good to see them together again!
This ‘Friends On Ice’ is the show held by Shizuka at the end of August annually. This is the first time that Stephane has appeared there and we could have the chance to see this couple! Hopefully Stephane is coming the succeeding years!

He is But I can't understand what Shizuka is saying, so sometimes I'm lost what are they talking about. But thanks for the link anyway!
Has anybody else noticed how many skaters only started skating because of their sister? Stephane, Javier, Yuzuru.. I wonder how many others! Thank you sisters!

Stephane's Poeta from Ice Legends 2016: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28pLg9v_iR0 Judging from the videos, the show was a great succes!

I'm not into ice shows in general but that Ice Legends show is a bold artistic statement. Even watching it on Youtube is like a dream
Stèphane strives to better himself and is willing to take on new challenges, even now, long after he retired from competitions. And it shows. He continues to grow as an artist. He resurrected Poeta after nearly 10 years in Ice Legends, and it looks even better and more emotional than when he competed with it way back in 2006. A rare talent. He still travels around the world because his performances are wanted everywhere, and that is surely not without a reason!
Otherwise, I agree with you completely. Stephane really continues to push himself and grow even more as a skater and artist. That's why I think it's a pity that so few people on these forums are interested in his exhibition programs and figure skating shows in general - they miss what a skater Stephane really is. They view him as that skater who competed in seniors from 2002 to 2008, and then in 2009/2010 for a bit, but he has grown so much since then in many aspects. His professional career is a very major part of Stephane Lambiel as a skater. In fact, I became a true fan of his only in 2008 (although I knew and liked him before), and have followed all of his performances at shows which I could view either live or on TV/video ever since. I actually associate Stephane as a skater at least just as much, if not even more with his programs, performances and other projects as a professional as/than I do with his competitive performances.
