Toronto. My good friend editor Bob Lansdale sent along a note he received from Tony Hauser. Tony is a photographer with a studio in the King Eddie downtown. Tony is featuring his portraits and photos of dancers in the National Ballet of Canada (NBC) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ms Kain in the NBC.
Tony writes, “The 2019/20 season marks Karen Kain’s 50th anniversary with the National Ballet of Canada. Like many lovers of ballet and dance, I have followed Karen’s remarkable career from an audience perspective. I have also been privileged to photograph her, an iconic Canadian, several times.
“In a tribute to Karen’s achievements, I am featuring portraits of her, together with a selection of photographs of current and previous dance artists from the National Ballet, in my gallery at the Omni King Edward Hotel, 37 King Street East. V. Tony Hauser C.M.”
