Book of Beasts
Paul Taylor’s dance Book of Beasts is loosely inspired by a medieval book called a “bestiary” – a collection of allegories from the Middle Ages about animals (some real and some imaginary). The dance features several fantastical creatures and a precise, yet hilarious ensemble, all to a medley of iconic classical music played by a solo harpsichordist.
Peter and the Wolf
Peter and the Wolf features the return of the legendary Vanessa Williams who will narrate Sergei Prokofiev’s delightful symphonic fairy tale performed by the musicians of Orchestra of St. Luke’s. Using a Russian folktale to introduce children to the different instruments of the orchestra, Peter and the Wolf tells the story of a boy named Peter who, with his animal friends, outsmarts an aggressive wolf. This version is music and narration only (no dancing), with Ms. Williams and the musicians teaming up to ignite our imaginations.
Members of high society in tailcoats and gowns waltz to a baroque score, until more urgent 20th-century percussion vies for dominance. Cloven Kingdom reveals humans as “a social animal” through lyrical movement, exquisite patterns and design, and one of the most unforgettable, athletic quartets in all of modern dance.
