Fasinating choreography and precise dancing highlighted the evening. I loved the live classical accompaniment of orchestra,chorus and soloists. They deserved the standing ovation they received.

An outstanding evening. The chorus and orchestra provided beautiful music from Handel. The Mark Morris Dance Company made the music visible with great beauty and wit. We loved it.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Mark Morris Dance Group performs L’allegro, Il Penseroso ed Il Moderato, which features 24 dancers, the LA Opera Orchestra and Chorus as well as a quartet of world-class singers: sopranos Hei-Kyung Hong and Sarah Coburn, tenor Barry Banks and bass-baritone John Relyea. With Handel’s pastoral ode as the musical landscape, and set to the poetry of John Milton, along with sets inspired by William Blake’s later watercolors, L’allegro is a true artistic feat sure to captivate Music Center audiences. Morris’ landmark work is presented as part of the first-ever collaboration between the Music Center and LA Opera.
