Paul Taylor Dance Company

EVENTIDE

Opus Number:  105
Music:  Ralph Vaughan Williams
Set and Costumes:  Santo Loquasto
Lighting:  Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed:  February 25, 1997
Notes:  “The American spirit soars when Taylor’s dances and dancers meet, but rarely has it reached the sublime heights of this piece. It is a paean to remembered love, with couple after loving couple looking back even as they embrace an unknown future… It is bittersweet but, typical for Taylor, also optimistic and uplifting. An American masterpiece.” – Octavio Roca, San Francisco Chronicle
