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
Founded in 1970 by noted British Gilbert and Sullivan scholar and artist Richard Sheldon, the company has enjoyed a remarkable rise to fame. Known for the authentic style of its productions, the company is constantly winning new audiences through its nationwide tours and is acclaimed as the foremost Gilbert and Sullivan touring repertory company in the country.
A deliciously intelligent satire of British Society at the time of its creation, The Mikado premiered at London's Savoy Theatre in 1885. Its Japanese setting allowed Gilbert and Sullivan to mask their commentary on British society in a spectacularly clever fashion. The most celebrated Gilbert & Sullivan opera, Opera a la Carte's The Mikado is a musical journey back to the 1800s.
