"Offenbach Overtures," from 1995, is loaded with hoary jokes, but the humor's so endearingly dopey that you laugh in spite of yourself. Parisa Khobdeh was a batty beaux-arts belle baffled by a bit too much absinthe; Laura Halzack, one of Taylor's newest dancers, proved pretty and funny.
The evening opened with "Images," a lush work to Debussy from 1977. Not only does Taylor do great things with Debussy, but his company has the hunkiest guys in concert dance - here, they're shirtless. Think of it as art meets Chippendales.
