Gregory-Bujones Black Swan Pas De Deux
3 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wonderful record of this pair's performance in San Francisco of the Black Swan Pas De Deux from Tschaikovsky's Swan Lake. Cynthia Gregory is strong and sure and mesmerizing and Bujones is magnificent. A treasure. A marvelous opportunity to see the power of great dance. Having played Swan Lake in pit orchestras for years I remember the tremendous ovations they received night after night. I happened on this video at 4 AM on the Arts Channel on Cable TV and it put my mind in a good place. I hope others will discover it and dance students will get an opportunity to see it. Cynthia, tall for a ballerina, has impeccable rhythm and her arm movements give a beautiful illusion of swan wings. Wherever she is, I hope she is still inspiring others through dance.
