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

Terrific seats in the Founders Circle, which are the best seats, balancing view and sound, in the Chandler.
This Rheingold is controversial (traditionalists may be offended) but a very quick two and a half hours - well-sung and gorgeous, with lots of theater magic. Not your father's Ring.
Quotes & Highlights
- One hour prior to each performance in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion Grand Hall, Maestro James Conlon will be interviewed by Alan Chapman.
<p>Gods, goddesses, giants, and dwarves struggle to be lords of the ring, but as Wagner's mammoth music drama unfolds, the ring's curse unleashes its vengeance.</p>
<p>From the opening sounds of the River Rhine's rippling waters through the majestic "Entry of the Gods into Valhalla," you'll be swept away by Wagner's magnificent music. Wagner's Ring creates a vivid world and a musical experience never to be forgotten.</p>
<p>James Conlon conducts an extraordinary cast of internationally acclaimed Wagnerians. As the chief god Wotan, Vitalij Kowaljow, a powerful Ukrainian bass, promises to "dominate every scene he is in" (The New York Times). Making her Company debut as Wotan's insistent wife Fricka will be Michelle DeYoung a "remarkably powerful mezzo" (Opera Today), who has already performed the role at The Metropolitan Opera. Other notable debuts include Arnold Bezuyen as Loge and Gordon Hawkins as Alberich. Making a welcome return from previous seasons will be Jill Grove as the earth goddess Erda, Eric Halfvarson as the giant Fafner, and Graham Clark as Mime, one of his signature roles.</p>
<p>In German with English supertitiles.
