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

Wagner's most voluptuous opera opens with the lyric poet Tannhäuser lost in lust with Venus, the pagan goddess of passion. Our hero appears to be living the ultimate male fantasy. Venus's charms prove incapable of eternal enchantment, however, when Tannhäuser chooses earthly freedom over the slavery of erotic entrapment.
The musical gifts that won Tannhäuser the heart of a goddess also conquer the heart of the beatific Elisabeth, a nobleman's innocent daughter. When he shocks the town with his bold song affirming love's sensual delights and discloses his dalliance with Venus, he's condemned and banished. Only the fatal love of his faithful Elisabeth can redeem him.
James Conlon conducts this company premiere in a new production directed by Ian Judge. Tannhäuser features some of opera's most thrilling music: The famous overture, the rousing bacchanale that crescendos to a savage climax, Elisabeth's greeting to the hall of music ("Dich, teure Halle"), Wolfram's serenade to the evening star ("O, du mein holder Abendstern"), and the heaven-storming Pilgrim's Chorus.
Porgy and Bess
By George Gershwin, DuBose and Dorothy Heyward and Ira Gershwin
Francesca Zambello directs a theatrically vivid production featuring Gershwin’s utterly unique score which blends blues, Tin Pan Alley and opera. Starring Kevin Short and Alfred Walker as Porgy and Indira Mahajan and Morenike Fadayomi as Bess, conducted by John DeMain. Chronicling the lives and struggles of an African-American community in South Carolina, this classic tale of love lost and found has captivated generations of both opera lovers and Broadway fans.
The Merry Widow
Susan Graham stars in one of the most beloved of all operettas. A beautiful widow’s fortune could mean all the difference for a tiny nation’s future, but a spurned lover’s arrogance threatens to get in the way. Lehár’s ravishing score dances and dazzles its way to a delightfully perfect conclusion. Director Lotfi Mansouri’s opulent production revels in romantic intrigue, splashy production numbers and timeless Viennese waltzes.
