A Pairing of Swans is an homage to two superb dancers, Evelyn Hart and Rex Harrington. Hart's transcendent performance in The Dying Swan hearkens back to the first 'immortal swan' -- Anna Pavlova. Harrington is mesmerizing in a contemporary solo choreographed for his unique talents. The educational DVD-ROM offers 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. --- Special features include: The Big Picture: Behind the Scenes featurette; From Stage To Screen documentary; Play Film with Educational Tidbits; Swans Solos- Stage View; Artists and Historical Biographies; Moments in Stillness: production images by Bruce Zinger; Audio Commentaries by Veronica Tennant, Evelyn Hart, Rex Harrington, Matjash Mrozewski, Shauna Rolston, Amanda Forsyth, and David Fallis. --- “The variety of features and educational resources is extensive - invaluable - for both dance-lovers and students.” - Karen Kain, C.C., Artistic Director, The National Ballet of Canada
