Mark Morris Dance Group: L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato
Mark Morris is well loved by Bay Area patrons for the remarkable live performances that he has presented at Cal Performances over the years. His full-length dance staging of George Frideric Handel’s oratorio L’Allegro, il penseroso ed il moderato in Madrid was captured on film by Vincent Bataillon, in 2014. An extraordinary achievement that celebrates the pictorial beauty of this glorious work through inspired choreography and set design, this production is a tremendous meeting of talent—George Frideric Handel, John Milton, Mark Morris—performed under the baton of Jane Glover and the Teatro Real Orchestra and Chorus, Madrid. Sheer delight!
