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

Director Maximilian Schell combines forces with visionary artist and designer Gottfried Helnwein for a visually exciting and highly entertaining look at the intricacies of love and romance. An aristocratic lady encounters a younger rival for her brash paramour's affections. Her fascinating response plays out in a delightful glance at the timeless mysteries of the heart.
Soprano Adrianne Pieczonka (our lovely Elsa in Lohengrin) is the glamorous Marschallin, increasingly aware that time is not on her side. Mezzo-soprano Alice Coote makes her company debut in a charming trouser role as the impetuous youth who finds true love, and soprano Elizabeth Futral, our unforgettable Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare, is the unexpected object of his affection. Finally, bass Kurt Rydl returns as the delightfully gauche Baron Ochs, whose decision to marry turns everything askew.
Music Director Kent Nagano conducts Strauss's delicious and luxurious score, which darts effortlessly from infectious waltzes to a rapturous final trio for three sopranos.
