Here's some videos from last year that I found:
Brian Joubert - Mezzo
Stephane Lambiel - Run
Props to his team for continuing the shows and for that crazy talented cast!
I really hope we see some video from this show. What a fabulous cast!! It's been fun watching all the skaters tweet about it and put up pictures on instagram!
I'm pleasantly surprised he got such an amazing cast! Great for skating in Kazakhstan
Also a funny thing I want to note! Maybe I'm way behind on noticing this, but I just watched the finale video where everyone is wearing what I'm imagining is reflective of traditional Kazakh dress, and Carolina is wearing that dress that was her first Scheherazade dress everyone (myself included) had such problems with. It makes me wonder if that dress was originally made for this show. It also makes me wonder how often skaters get to keep costumes they use from shows like this, or if something is made specifically for the show do they have to buy it themselves if they want to keep it?
Off the ice
It looks like a really fun show to do - they get to do fun touristy stuff in Kazakhstan, and it's not a place most skaters (or people) would likely visit otherwise.

All the skaters were given their traditional costumes last year to take home as a commemorative gift (see here - scroll down for English). Kostner chose to wear hers at CoC as her own costume was not yet ready. I actually picked up on it being the same dress at the time The costume wasn't my cup of tea and I didn't think it was right for the program, but it was a sweet gesture on her part of acknowledge it like that.

What a wonderful cast!!
by the look of the pictures on twitter, they are having an amazing time. I am so glad Mirai is there making some money.
Darn it, Denis! Show more of Dai's new programs!

I really liked the "battle" of the two DTs.
what's next? A V/T vs. V/T twist battle?
Thumbs up to DT and his team for great shows. DT's experiences with all those shows seems to pay off. Great casts. Amazing production. Hope to see more of HD videos. Thanks every one for the links.
more fancams! they're blurry but they are good enough for watching...imo (kinda reminds me of 90s home vids - ah the nostalgia)

I must say this show had the best cast I have ever seen. Don't know how can they invite all of them at once? Really, just put the casting of Yuna show to a long sighhh
