Now in its 60th year, the pioneering Paul Taylor Dance Company stages several of its acclaimed pieces at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Dubbed the "naughty boy" of dance by Martha Graham, Taylor's not only one of the greatest modern choreographers of the 20th century, he's also one of the 21st century's most daring innovators, still creating well into his 80s. His 16-member company embodies his continuing genius and nurtures new talent -- Tony winners Twyla Tharp and David Parsons are among its many distinguished alumni. Expect a wonderful show of kinetic movement, enthralling storytelling and surprising humor from one of the true legends of the form. Learn More

Over the years, I've seen many productions of Carmen. This is one of my favorites. Not only were the singers wonderful and the stage setting impressive, but Carmen was performed as Carmen should be, lusty, flirtatious, and passionate. Don Jose also carried his role of infatuated, obsessed, want to be lover very well. After a few disappointing opera productions at the Music Center, I am again a fan.
Thank you, Goldstar for wonderful seats, orchestra row J on the side, was excellent. Note for anyone going, parking during the weekday at the Music Center can be hard to get, so get there early unless you want to park at the Disney Hall. It was still ok.
Quotes & Highlights
Bizet's sizzling opera springs to vivid life in this production that originated at Madrid's Teatro Real. French conductor Emmanuel Villaume, Spoleto Festival USA’s Music Director for Opera and Orchestra, returns to lead a magnificent production originally created by Emilio Sagi for the Teatro Real.
Spanish mezzo-soprano Nancy Fabiola Herrera makes her Company debut as Carmen, a signature role she has sung recently at Covent Garden and at The Met. Tenor German Villar takes the part of the obsessive and self-destructive Don José. Sabina Cvilak makes her Company debut as Micaëla. Acclaimed bass Raymond Aceto takes the role of Escamillo.
