    Liberstraum (sp?, their LP from 92 Olympics) - M&D
    I think it's spelt "Liebestraum". I'll add that to my list too, aswell as:

    Carmina Burana - Anissina & Peizerat
    My Sweet & Tender Beast - Sasha Cohen (though I also like A&P's)
    West Side Story - Duchesnays
    Meditation -Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze
    The Feeling Begins - Michelle Kwan
    Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini - Ina & Zimmerman
    Don't Cry For Me Argentina - Katarina Witt
    Michael Jackson - Bourne & Kraatz
    Elvis Presley - Belbin & Agosto
    Winter (or most Bond music) - Alexei Yagudin
    Otonal - Maria Butyrskaya
    Legends of the Fall - Vanessa Gusmeroli
    Ave Maria - Oksana Baiul (IIRC)
    Sadeness - Bourne & Kraatz, although I also loved Oksana Baiul's
    fake sword fighting choreography - Phillippe Candeloro

    Carmina Burana - Paul Wylie
    Bolero - Torvill & Dean
    1492 - Todd - I really like Elvis' 1996 Worlds performance of this too (free skate), but the music editing was jarring.
    Riverdance - B&K
    The Color of Roses - Yuka (although I do feel that Tara did a nice program with this as well)
    Samson & Delilah - Bechke & Petrov
    Malaguena - Sasha
    Nutcracker - Shen & Zhao

    (I realize that some of these are not "warhorses," but I'm picking my favorite performances of them, anyway)

    oh Liebestraum, my favorite interpreetation of that is Ilia Kulik.
    Carmina Burana: I like A&P, also K&O, and Paul's is magnificent too.
    I love A&P's MITIM too.
    Czardas: Bechke-Petrov
    My Heart Will Go On: Angela Nikodinov also there's a magnificent ice dance team or pair team who skated to it and told the story of the movie perfectly.
    I love B&B's Rasputin. When I hear people criticize it it makes me laugh, it makes me wonder if they know the story (or legend) at all LOL.
    Miserere (not sure if that's the name): Todd Eldredge
    oh Romeo and Juliet from Tchaikovsky I believe was skated to wonderfully by Yamaguchi/Galindo
    Mulan: Shen/Zhao
    Arabian music: best skated to IMO by Alexander Abt
    Zorro: Alexander Abt, also Abitol/Bernadis' is lovely.
    Pocahontas: Michelle Kwan
    you don't see too many people skate to The Prince of Egypt, which is a BLOODY SHAME LOL the music is magnificent, my favorite interpretation is Alexei Urmanov.

    I forgot to add A&P for Carmina Burana, and M&D for Liebestraum. Both were amazing programs.

    hehehe ahhh a fellow Russian history-addict? :D :D

    My favorite Matrix would be K&D
    I'm not fond of any Tosca programs but if I had to choose a favorite it would be Irina Slutskaya. Yagudin's was great, but he lost the art somewhere in the middle I think.

    I notice as I download skating vids that a lot of people skated to Aladdin.

    My favorite Aladdin program of all time (LOL or should I say the last 12 years cause that's all the older the movie is) is ILIA KULIK.

    My favorite Swan Like is Klimova and Ponomorenko's, with Galindo's right behind.

    I notice a lot of skaters seem to have used Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker and/or Romeo and Juliet in the same program. My favorite of these would be Alexei Urmanov, who did Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet, and Sleeping Beauty.
