    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.

    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).

    Didn't Kurt also skate to Romeo and Juliet? Or am I nuts?

    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

    I rather like Michelle skating to Kissing You from 1996's Romeo and Juliet, and Frusar-Poli and Morgalio skating to that soundtrack too. But I voted for A&P's.

    Kurt Browning

    Kurt skated to "Masks and Morning Dance" from Prokofiev. He used it at

    1995 Northwest Mutual Life World Team Championships
    1998 U.S. Pro Figure Skating Classic
    1998 World Professional Championships

    It was wonderful!
