A Fairy Tale Beginning - Wild Swans

Wild Swans in Concert
Seats still available for this Saturday. A fairy-tale beginning inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairy tale, Wild Swans In Concert, this Saturday 11 November 7.30pm. Elena Kats-Chernin, Tamara-Anna Cislowska, Jane Sheldon

The breathtaking music of Wild Swans in Concert is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Wild Swans: a young girl Eliza is driven from her home by her wicked stepmother who turns her eleven brothers into wild swans.  To break the spell, Eliza must knit eleven coats out of stinging nettles, find the swans and dress them in their jackets - all while keeping silent.

Elena Kats- Chernin found her voice in music at a young age and has been captivating audiences for decades. Even if you don't know her name, you're bound to have heard her music, whether on the radio, online, at the Olympics or in the Sydney Opera House.

Recently celebrating her 60th birthday, both stage and auditorium were packed for this much loved performer’s birthday concert. So if you weren’t at the birthday party now is your chance to hear her work.

Now – on 11 November at 7.30pm - The Joan proudly presents Kats-Chernin’s breath-taking piano and vocal score in concert format, with two of Australia’s most outstanding pianists – Tamara-Anna Cislowska and Elena Kats-Chernin - playing live on stage, joined by New York based Australian soprano Jane Sheldon, who is described by the Sydney Morning Herald as ‘superb, with a voice of penetrating beauty, precision and variegated colours’.

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.

This incredible piano score will be played by four hands on one piano with Sheldon’s spectacular soprano voice rising above the music, and will be accompanied by photographic images created and curated by the extraordinary photographer and visual designer Regis Lansac.

Elena Kats-Chernin is one of the most cosmopolitan composers working today and her love of extreme and dramatically vivid music – from joy to thunder; whimsy to roar – takes audiences on a journey of exquisite beauty in Wild Swans.

Wild Swans in Concert is a must for all lovers of fine music – finishing The Joan’s 2017 Fine Music series on a high note, in the hands of a musical dream team.

An eclectic score of great delicacy, transparency, and inventiveness. Stephen Eddins, ALL MUSIC
