Mao Asada, one of favourites for gold at the Olympics in Vancouver, appeared in ice show in Aichi Prefecture. She demonstrated skating to Paganini's "Caprice".

Asada Mao, who held a red-pink fan in one hand and skated to a fast-paced piano piece, successfuly landed triple jumps. "In one piece of music I wanted to show the cool parts and the comical parts," said Mao. She also charmed the audience during a pair program with her older siter, Mai, and another one with former World champion Jeffrey Buttle.

Asada Mao will start her Olympic season with a showing at Trophee Eric Bompbard, the first event of the Grand Prix Series. "I will aim to avoid injury and show my best performance in every competition," said Mao.

Mao & Mai outfits for the pair program:

So it looks like:
Like a Star @ heaven Mao skated to Caprice No. 24

Like a Star @ heaven This particular Caprice also has vocals
Like a Star @ heaven She attempted the 2A, 2T, 3F
Like a Star @ heaven Apparently her step sequences were superb Wink
Like a Star @ heaven Mao's use of arms have "improved considerably"
Like a Star @ heaven Spins are looking great, once again
(source: 2ch's Mao Asada Supporter Thread, so the information *might* be off)

Like a Star @ heaven Kozu skated his SP, which will be Jimi Hendrix's Bold as Love. Interesting choice...
Like a Star @ heaven Er, I skimmed through at least 7 of the latest 2ch threads pertaining to Miki, but none of them seem to mention her performing to Requiem today... (Bring in 'da Funk only?) Sweatdrop

I love the Caprice costume! Wub Swoon

Mao's programs look great! Caprice looks sophisticated, fun and challenging, and "Lady Marmelade" - just adorable.

Thank you all for the links and reports! Thank you!

Not yet! According to a report I read Mao wore a costume like an Arabic dancer (one of her most beautiful dresses) and Jeff - white pants and a vest with golden elements, but I haven't seen any photos yet. I'll post the links if I find any!

Mao & Jeff!!! Wub Confetti Love


(It's a photo made by a fan, so it's a bit blurry and washed out, but still, they look great. I love you)

There was only that interview that was published on FSU... I think you have read it already. I think that possibly the details of Miki's programs might be released in the documentary that will air on August 2nd. flower

(I'll keep an eye open for any info about programs, though. Smile )

Thanks so much for the clips and pictures! I had a horrible day yesterday, but these updates have cheered me up so much. I can't wait to see the Caprice program- she looks like she's having so much fun in the clips. Lady Marmalade looks so cute, hahaha, and I can't wait to see the Jeff/Mao program! It's Aladdin, right? Aladdin + Jeff + Mao = a combination of three of my favorite things/people! I love the look on Jeff's face in that picture...he obviously adores Mao! Laugh

Thank you everyone for the pics and news!! Mao's new dress looks fabulous!! I've been wondering... who designs Mao's costumes? She always has the most gorgeous ones.

I can't wait for this show to be aired! I've been playing the news clip en boucle for an hour now lol!

I think that since switching to Tatiana, it's TAT who has been designing most of her dresses (except for the ones she wears to programs not choreographed by Tatiana - those are probably designed by the Japanese designer whose name I forgot. Embarassed )

To anyone who's interested: here's a list of programs that were performed at The Ice:

Kihara Ryuichi - SPEED
Watanabe Mao - Romeo & Juliet
Nakamura Ayane - Sakura, Sakura
Sone Miki - The Mask of Zorro 
Suizu Rumi - TANGHESTA
Murakami Kanako - Hair Spray
Asada Mai - Aranjuez [a new arrangement]
Adam Rippon - Desperado - I'm Yours
Mura Takahito - Fur Elize, Techno version
The Kerrs ー The Boogie Bumper + Minnie The Moocher
Suzuki Akiko - Caribe
Asada Sisters - Lady Marmelade
Pang & Tong - Unidentified Russian Ballad
Denis Ten - Swan Lake -> Sing sing sing -> In the memory of Michael Jackson
Takahiko Kozuka - Bold as love
Belbin & Agosto - Bleeding Love
Jeffrey Buttle - Eclogue
Ando Miki - Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk
Evan Lysacek - Rhapsody in Blue
Asada Mao - Caprice

This is a list of solo performances only. There was also an opening number, group numbers & finale, including Mao & Jeff's pair program of course. Encore

I translated this from Japanese, so sorry if I made any mistakes.
