AUREOLE (1962)
Choreography: Paul Taylor
Music: G. F. Handel (Excerpts from Concerti
Grossi in C and F and the oratorio Jeptha)
Lighting: Nicholas Cernovitch after the original
design of Jennifer Tipton
Among the score of dances Paul Taylor has created, there is none more popular with audiences than this simple and joyous dance for two men and three women. All exists in a world that is full of light and playfulness. Their relations with one another are always just a moment away from the friendly lilt of laughter and are expressed with great tenderness. Aureole was first performed by the Paul Taylor Dance Company.

Important Concert Changes
Two attractions in our current season have recently cancelled their tours to the United States: the Glinka Chorus of Leningrad and the Krasnayarsk Dancers from Siberia, scheduled for January 29 and February 29 respectively. We're pleased to announce the following groups as replacements on the same dates:
Roger Wagner Chorale--foremost among American choral ensembles for three decades (replacing Glinka Chorus, same date, Tues. Jan. 29 at 8:30, Hill Auditorium)
Massenkoff Russian Folk Festival--Nikolai Massenkoff, bass, and his California-based ensemble of folk dancers and balalaika players, all of Russian heritage, in a program spanning a thousand years of Russian history--ballads, war songs, love songs, dances (replacing Krasnayarsk Dancers, same date, Fri. Feb. 29 at 8:30, Hill Auditorium)
Glinka Chorus tickets should be used for admission to the Wagner Chorale, and Krasnayarsk tickets for the Massenkoff Folk Festival. Additional tickets are also available for both concerts. Ticket exchanges, if desired, may be made up to two days prior to each performance.
