Paul Taylor Dance Company

OFFENBACH OVERTURES

Opus Number:  103
Music:  Jacques Offenbach
Costumes:  Santo Loquasto
Lighting:  Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed:  October 12, 1995
Notes:  “Taylor-ed to keep you in stitches…Offenbach Overtures starts as a gentle spoof…but low comedy soon gets the upper hand, and you’re doubled over in laughing before you know it. A typical Taylor twist left the opening night crowd rolling in the aisles.” – Terry Teachout, Daily News
