    I agree. The ones I have are from world pros and ice wars. That kind of program really suits him. I wish he had not gotten into skating some silly programs.

    He doesn't like to keep programs from one season to another. Also, apparently, Tosca isn't exactly one of his favorite programs LOL

    Favorite Tosca

    Michelle Kwan took my breath away her Tosca. The music is so inspiring and MK certainly did this program justice.

    Well since I didn't see the other Toscas, I would have to go with Michelle's by default
    With '04 Nationals though. The passion of the program just completely blew me away. It was amazing to see how she was able to carry it out throughout the whole program, culminating to a climax at the end with the footwork. Despite how it was empty in some parts, I think she was able to carry it off overall with the passion. Heck, I didn't even notice it until afterwards because I was so spellbound by the music and with how she was skating to it.

    MK's Tosca got my vote, though IMHO I'm still waiting for a good Tosca programme. My second choice was L&A's Tosca (she had the facials right; I remember they kept zooming in and showing her "Tosca grimace", lol)

    Yags skated an honest Tosca, but the only time I saw it was at '00 Worlds where it was kind of a splatfest.

    I didn't care for Petrenko's Tosca; the bloody shirt thing seemed like too much of a gimmick to me

    Callas may be the quintessential Tosca female, but I submit that all of you should snag a recording of British opera singer Russell Watson singing some of the male parts, especially the "E Lucevan Le Stelle".......OMG!
