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.

In a Cinderella-like story, an innocent young daughter, hated by her vicious stepsisters, is pushed off a cliff to her death and her soul is imprisoned in the trunk of an ancient tree buried deep in the forest. Will the spell be broken by the gypsy magic of her deceased mother and by a young woodsman who fashions a violin out of the tree? Simon Sargon’s delightful, poignant work brings new life to this age-old gypsy fable.

Premiered in 1800, the play depicts the last days of Mary, Queen of Scots, imprisoned on suspicion of plotting to overthrow her cousin Queen Elizabeth I. The Washington Post wrote, “In its depiction of charismatic but isolated leaders grappling with the demands of ego and diplomacy, it easily satisfies our craving for political stars.”
