    Favorite Romeo & Juliet

    I am going to pick 3 different Romeo & Juliet musical choices for this (Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, and the movie theme). Which one is your most favorite Romeo & Juliet program? Why?

    From the choices, A/P's version and Sasha Cohen's were my favorites. I liked Kulik's too.

    I ended up going with Sasha Cohen because I like the music more LOL

    A&P's. It took my breath away, and was the program that got me to love dance.

    Klimova and Ponomarenko's version was breath-taking.......for me the best ever. I would put Kristi's a close second.......42

    I voted for Ilia Kulik. It was a beautiful and really great choreography! Unfortunately though rather unskateable in the sense that it was way too busy = exhausting for a skater to be able to give a perfect performance.

    This is hard. I agree with you, Jaana. I thought Ilia's was a very beautiful choreographically speaking, but technically, it was unskateable, and I think it was because of the latter that sort of left me unsatisfied. I liked both Anissina & Peizerat's and Marina & Sergei's. Marina & Sergei's were more sweet (beginning of program) and sad (at the end), while the Anissina & Peizerat's were passionate and dramatic. I really enjoyed the latter very much, though, so I picked Anissina & Peizerat's.

    I have to vote for Marina Anissina and Gwendal Peizerat 's FD. I still think that is the best FD ever.

    I haven't seen all of them, but I voted for Klimova & Ponomarenko. That was a beautiful programme. I never really got into Anissina & Peizerat's, although I've only seen it a few times. My favourite *music* is probably the Nina Rota version ("movie theme"), but I wouldn't have picked Sasha's programme to it because, even though I really like Sasha's skating, it was non-stop spirals. I just think she could have done so much more with that music. Maybe that's just me.

    I also chose Klimova and Ponomarenko's program. I thought they interpreted the music very well and was just a beautiful program. G&G would be my second choice.

    Now we can throw 3 more into the mix- Shizuka, Elena Sokolova, and Angela's LP's skated this year to Tchaikovsky's R&J. I have to admit I prefer a pair or ice dance couple skating to this music (rather than a singles skater).

    I have not seen Kurt skate to Romeo & Juliet (any version of it), but does not mean he never did. However, it will have to be very early in his career, if he did use this music. I have a tough time visualizing him skate to this music (any of the three versions).

    IIRC Viktor Petrenko skated a medley of R&J music as a pro (unless I am confusing it with something else).

    Ann-Patrice used the Zefirelli movie theme for her 2002 LP, and as we know, Fusar-Poli and Margaglio used the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack for their 2001 FD...

    I don't like the Italian version LOL
