NIGHTSHADE

Opus Number:  70
Music:  Alexander Scriabin
Costumes:  Gene Moore
Lighting:  Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed:  April 19, 1979
Notes:  “Taylor’s deliciously Gothic romance is a work to take along when stranded on a desert island. A mock Victorian melodrama that makes for some uneasy laughter, it is about sexual repression and false innocence. Taylor is often at his funniest, when he is at his most serious.” – Anna Kisselgoff, New York Times
