Mark Morris, the “Mozart of modern dance” (The Washington Post), returns to Lincoln Center with his beloved masterpiece L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato. A marriage of soaring Handel music and life-affirming dance, the work refers to ways of living and dancing at once: mirthful, melancholy, and in moderation. An exquisite fusion of Baroque songcraft and Morris’s famously musical choreographic ethos, the celebrated choreographer’s humanist, spiritual vision evokes a sublime, timelessly relevant world. Handel expert Jane Glover—a long-time collaborator of Morris’s—leads soloists, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street with Downtown Voices, and the MMDG Music Ensemble.
“Masterpiece isn't a word to be thrown around lightly, but there's no denying that Mark Morris's L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato is thrillingly that.”– New York Times
“The entire spectacle represents one of those rare theatrical occasions by which those present measure their lives.”– The Times Literary Supplement (U.K.)
