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

Pre-theater lecture is strongly recommended! Conlon directed
a very capable group of musicians and singers, and even though
the story is complicated and asks more questions then it answers, it
is an interesting evening at the opera. If you are expecting great arias and "classical" opera; this is not it! If you want something that is a bit of a challenge, you will enjoy it.

James Conlon conducts Britten's mesmerizing score that brings an unforgettable Henry James classic to the opera stage in a compelling production that perfectly captures the work's supernatural atmosphere. Soprano Patricia Racette makes her role debut as the Governess, determined to protect two small children from menacing spirits. Tenor William Burden and mezzo-soprano Ann Murray makes their Company debuts, respectively as the ghostly Peter Quint and the housekeeper, Mrs. Grose.
