A Pairing of Swans takes a behind-the-scenes look of one of history’s most elegant and famous dances—ballet.
A poetic homage to the two consummate Canadian artists of the international ballet scene, Evelyn Hart and Rex Harrington, who at the summit of their careers are joined by the riveting Brent Carver, and celebrated cellists, Shauna Rolston and Amanda Forsyth. Harpist Judy Loman plays in the two exquisite music compositions; The Dying Swan by Camille Saint-Saëns, and The Swan Sees His Reflection by Canadian composer, Malcolm Forsyth. The mirror-image solos reflect the classical and contemporary — in concept, camera-styles, dancing and choreography. Elegant, engaging and educational—A Pairing of Swans strives to leave viewers breathless.
Offering a wealth of resources to all — whether aficionados or students. Listen to the candid commentaries, and witness the process and drama behind the scenes, as stellar dancers, musicians, choreographer and camera-team, transform the works for the screen.
