The Spring Dance Concert features a diverse mix of modern, jazz and ballet works. Paul Taylor’s masterwork Mercuric Tidings, described by New York Times dance critic Anna Kisselgoff as “a dance that seemingly bursts into song,” is set to symphonic music by Schubert. Alternately physically propulsive and elegantly introspective, it is one of Taylor’s most demanding, sumptuous and poetic creations. Valse-Fantaisie, a whirlwind dance for a lead couple and four additional women, was choreographed by George Balanchine for New York City Ballet in 1967.
