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
Reviews & Ratings
From the opening tempest scene to the spine-tingling finish, Giuseppe Verdi's transformation of the original Shakespeare play crackles with theatrical electricity and incandescent intensity. When the evil Iago cleverly exploits Otello's obsessive jealousy, the Moor's innocent wife Desdemona is blindsided in the explosive dramatic friction. This musical portrait of Otello's descent into a tortured heart of darkness is explicit in every chilling detail -- the audience can feel the Moor's temples throb with Vesuvian rage and hear the blood boiling in his veins as he destroys all in life that he holds dear.
