"A gorgeously entertaining and witty tribute to the classic Beatles album."—The Guardian, London
Ethan Iverson, composer
A Cal Performances Co-commission
Mark Morris celebrates the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with an exuberant new dance work that revels in the eccentric charm and joyful optimism of the Beatles' groundbreaking album. The production, a smash hit with audiences at its Liverpool premiere last season, features a score by longtime Morris collaborator Ethan Iverson, who leads a unique chamber ensemble through arrangements of iconic songs from the record mixed with imaginative original compositions. "A truly joyous, celebratory work of art...a brilliant homage to one of the great rock albums" (The Telegraph, London).
