Paul Taylor Dance Company

AUREOLE

Opus Number:  30
Music:  George Frideric Handel
Set and Costumes:  George Tacet
Lighting:  Thomas Skelton
Date First Performed:  August 4, 1962
Notes:  “Aureole, perhaps his first major success, was the first time Taylor combined his loping antelope style of movement with baroque music, and its grace and individuality instantly spun into orbit throughout the world of dance. There is an interestingly variegated luminosity of spirit that recalls fluffy clouds on Shakespeare’s summer’s day.” – Clive Barnes, New York Post
