Wild Swans

The fairytale of 11 brothers turned into swans whose sister saves them elicits an eclectic score of great delicacy, transparency, and inventiveness. Stephen Eddins, ALL MUSIC

We finish the year with an artistic dream team, making this event especially for local music students and their teachers.

Elena Kats-Chernin’s haunting and evocative music to Meryl Tankard’s ballet Wild Swans captivated audiences around Australia when it was first performed by The Australian Ballet and broadcast on ABC TV.

Now The Joan proudly presents excerpts from Kats-Chernin’s breathtaking score in concert format, with two of Australia’s most outstanding pianists playing live on stage.

This incredible music inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairytale Wild Swans, will be accompanied by photographic images created and curated by the extraordinary photographer and visual designer Regis Lansac.

Wild Swan’s choreographer Meryl Tankard will join Elena, Tamara and Regis for this performance which will include discussion and demonstration of compositional, choreographic and visual elements.
