Naxos is releasing the following CD this month:

8.573076

Giacomo MEYERBEER (17911864)
Ballet Music from the Operas
Barcelona Symphony Orchestra
Michał Nesterowicz

Giacomo Meyerbeer was one of the most significant opera composers of all time. The four grand operas represented here brought him his greatest fame, with Les Huguenots being one of the most performed of all operas. Meyerbeers contributions to the French tradition of opéra-ballet acquired legendary status, including the ghostly Ballet of the Nuns from Robert le Diable; the exotic orchestral colour of the Marche indienne in LAfricaine; and the virtuoso Ballet of the Skaters from Le Prophète in which the dancers famously glided over the stage using roller skates.

Thanks so much for the heads-up.  I've always loved the score from Patineurs!

It would be nice if some figure skating choreographers made this the third CD in their collection.
