The first post in this thread has more info now. :coffee:

Dear Iexela, thank you, your list was helpful! :thank:

Dear all, please, tell me, if something important or wonderful is missing.
I think in our case one very good video is better than many videos of the same program, but if 2 or 4 videos should be posted, there can be 2 or 4 videos. (the picture quality is also important, unfortunately)

It's a pity that the video of Winter 2017 Tarasova's show (TV broadcast) is not any more on youtube:( There are some fans' videos but not so good...

And I like this video (not very good quality, though) from him practising "Gladiator", 2007 - it's funny how all the other skaters are making room and watching him, expecting to see that program and "big things" but because he could hardly train due to his hip, he kept doing everything "at half throttle".

IMO, "Gladiator" is one of his best programs (but only with the "original" final footwork, not with the one from MITIM as he did e.g. at International Figure Skating Challenge 2002 or Japan Open 2007) :clap:

And there used to be a cute and funny video of CNN reporting on Stars On Ice Tour 2005, including Alexei's interview, unluckily, it's gone too:frown:

somebody: He loved you. Not long ago in Astana I asked: "Is Yagudin going to skate in your show?" He said: "Not this time, unfotunately." ((((

I've seen.

Yagudin says he can't talk on the phone anymore.

Unfortunately, today has happened the thing which shouldn't have happened, which we didn't expect to happen. I think I say it for all the mass media, because I can't talk on the phone anymore, and for f*ing babblers in the internet who write all kinds of sh**. We've been crying all day long, because such a person has left this life. Not just a skater, but a Great Guy.
Yura, Oxana, we can't even imagine how are you now. Forgive us, if maybe we didn't save your son's life.

(I hope it is clear, that "babblers" are those followers who come to Yagudin's instagram to tell what they think on the way he talks. He always have some comments of this kind and some small fights, but he never had such a great war in comments. Sorry.)

Yagudin:
I talked to him two days ago. Naturally, words can't tell feelings. For me and for my family Denis is not just a skater from Kazakhstan, we got ties for different reasons. We've been crying all day long, because we really can't believe, that such a thing has happened. I know his parents, I used to spend much time with his mom, when I visited Kazakhstan. It isn't like we lost a skater from Kazakhstan, I've lost a part of myself. Like a grief in my family. I really hope, that those beasts who did it, will bear the whole responsibility for this.

I think you have talked to his parents. Was there a chance, that his life could be saved?

Y: I haven't talked. A man who works in safety in Kazakhstan, phoned me, he is the first who told it me. I know almost every minute of it. This is a tragedy indeed. To hell with those mirrors, cars. One can earn, can save up money. But this is a life of a human being...

What was he like?

Y: You know, people say, that athletes are not smart, and it is true, because they give their lives for the goals they try to reach. Denis was not only an athlete who achieved certain success due to his work, but he also was educated, intelligent and multitalented. Because he wrote music, he was talented for choreography and he had many ideas for the future, we often talked about them. So it's not just a robot that was an athlete and won medals, he was an awesome guy. And today we have lost this guy.

Tarasova:
It is uneasy to talk about such things. I talked with his mom, when he was still alive. Maybe his last minutes.

Was there a chance to save his life?

TAT: I don't know.

What was he like?

TAT: He is an outstanding boy. He was so talented, that he could win any medals. He was very talented and hardworking, he loved his work. What is very rare. That's all.

Tatiana Totmyanina:
A day of rethinking ... Here she is - MAMA with a capital letter!!! She gave birth, nurtured, raised, taught, directed, supported, punished, encouraged, always near and for the sake of ..., but some beast decided that here and now he has the right to deprive this boy of life... Well, they were caught, will be convicted, but noone can bring him back!!! This boy WAS the universe for his mother!!! how can she live now??? When my mother had left us, I thought it was the end of the world... but it's so planned by nature, that parents "leave" before we do. And here, how many mother's hopes, plans remained unrealizable. Oxana, dear, there is no word in this world which can describe the degree of your deprivation! Hold on!!! I wish you strength, female wisdom to cope with this and continue to LIVE!!! For the sake of the memory of such a wonderful son

Here one of the comments says, that "all the TV-channels in Kazakhstan have been showing Denis skating all day long".

Yagudin (2 parts):
Good evening everyone. Thank you very much, that you are our guests today. Before we will start our theatrical, we ask for a minute of your attention. We all know fully well, that we live and, actually, never know what can happen tomorrow. Yesterday in Almaty, in Kazakhstan, Denis Ten came to a tragic end, the bronze medalist of the Olympics which took place here in Sochi. I guess one could say many words about this athlete, but I guess we have lost a person - first of all. All the figure skaters who knew him, always noted his kindness and sincerity, because he was such a person indeed. We all know fully well, that perfect people don't exist, but he is a bright example which shows one can be almost perfect. With your permission we would like to honour memory of our young brother and hold a moment of silence. Thank you. ... Thank you.

a montage with Denis - "Samsara"
(4 videos, because a video in instagram should be very short)

The third day... the third day of continuous tears.... my heart and my head ache and rip apart.... I never will be able to say goodbye forever!!!! πŸ˜ͺ YOU WERE πŸ‘† YOU ARE πŸ‘† YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WITH ME, WITH OXANA AND YURA, WITH YOUR FRIENDS, WITH YOUR ADMIRERS, WITH KAZAKHSTAN, WITH RUSSIA, WITH PEOPLE OF THE PLANET 😰😰😰😰😰😰 this mourning and grief will last forever πŸ‘† .......... ......... ........ ....... ...... ..... .... ... .. . 🀦🀦🀦🀦🀦🀦. πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”

(from this song)

A teacher is being continued in his student
...
They said it was too late to save us and late to cure
We don't give a damn!
Our kids will be better than we
...
when I won't exist,
I'll be singing with my kids' voices
and with their kids voices
We are just being replaced
This is the Samsara law - the cycle of people



Yagudin:
A kind, pure-minded skater. And first of all, smart. Many maybe don't care when they send sms messages... I always noticed, that he never had mistakes in his messages, all the commas were in right places. It would seem it is a petty detail, but it shows in some ways what a person Denis was.
(If this link works for you, you can see, that he smiles, when he tells about commas)

(from the comments in instagram)

loikonen139: Did Yagudin attend the funeral?

alexei.yagudin@loikonen139: no, Yagudin didn't! Deeply regret to say. Yagudin had theatricals yesterday and today, we can't skip, there are no skaters to replace us...

alexei.yagudin@loikonen139: yet Yagudin will visit the grave, he'll come more than once! This is my BROTHER (((((((((

Just wondering, how did Alexei and Denis get to know each other so well? Did they train together for a while? Alexei is a lot older than Denis so was Alexei still being coached by Tarasova when Denis was there? Thanks again for the translations and inside info.

I don't think, that Alexei was being coached.
I don't know. (For example, when Yagudin speaks about Lambiel, he says he skated in many shows together with Lambiel.)

this is what I know about Denis and Alexei:

I didn't even notice. Yes, it seems those videos which I can find, are not the piece of the TV-show. But the full TV-version is still on Youtube. I add the link to the list. And I add the TV-version of the show, which Tarasova had in 2007.

Maybe this "Winter" (2017) is not bad?

Oh, I think it's natural, that they give room to the one who tries to work with music, I don't think, that they expect something.

I like this video (not very good quality, though) from him practising "Gladiator", 2007
I think we can put the "Gladiator" practice among the documentary videos.

And we shouldn't miss out "Typewriter"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cmi1BQkOqxo

Oh, I love A Typewriter Solo!
It is placed in the first post - together with Overcome and We Are The Champions - between seasons with TAT and the withdrawal (https://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?39933-Alexei-Yagudin)

After that there is a link "other exibitions (1998-2002)"
https://www.goldenskate.com/forum/s...exei-Yagudin&p=2136480&viewfull=1#post2136480

Do you think it would be better to name it "all the exibitions (1998-2002)" and to add We Are The Champions, Overcome, A Typewriter Solo to this "long list" too (like I did with "2003-2018")? Sorry, maybe I'm wrong, but I think, that these 3 exibitions are more interesting than ordinary ones - that is why I made such a short list on the first page... What do you think about it?..


I also think, that maybe I should delete the "Infinity" ice opera from this list (https://www.goldenskate.com/forum/s...exei-Yagudin&p=2136496&viewfull=1#post2136496) and post it together with ice theatricals. Because I'm going to post even "Alice in Wonderland" (the old one, with Yagudin) among the ice theatricals.

Alexei says the first ticket in Verona was bought by the mayor of Verona. As for other tickets... Alexei says: "very soon".
https://www.instagram.com/p/BlYldbWALN1/

The arena in Verona looks like this:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BlaOpUQhpMy/
Are they going to have a big tent? They had a tent in London, but I think it wasn't so big...

The "Russian Seasons" festival posts the info in this instagram (Averbukh will be not alone in Italy):
https://www.instagram.com/russian.seasons/

A year ago they also were saying, that they even had to compete with Cirque du Soleil which had come to Sochi. This summer Cirque du Soleil comes again. However... one who comes to Sochi can see both shows, so maybe 2 shows can help each other.

Marinin's son skates in the "Nutcracker" in Sochi. :clapper:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BlYZuXpDI6l/

Of course, they use the scenery of "R&J" for the "Nutcracker", and I think this scenery looks much better than the big head which they had before.
