Family Matinee

Part of: Paul Taylor Dance Company

 Saturday, November 4, 2023  2:00pm  Lincoln Center - David H. Koch Theater Directions

Ticketing Information

A tongue-and-cheek nod to the colorful pages of a medieval bestiary that featured beings both real and fantastical, Book of Beasts is perfect for younger generations and older generations alike.

Orchestra of St. Luke’s is joined by Vanessa Williams who narrates Prokofiev’s masterpiece Peter and the Wolf.

Just below the surface of humans’ civilized veneer lurks an animal nature that cannot be ignored. Taylor’s iconic work Cloven Kingdom reflects  the struggle between our gentler and more savage natures.
